Fixed-term employment agreements concluded for a definite period

Ministry of Labour and Social Policy has published on its website a draft amendment to the Labour Code concerning employment agreements concluded for the definite period.

Pursuant the project in question, the employment period of the employee employed for a definite time shall not exceed 33 months. Moreover, the employer will not be able to enter into more than three such agreements with the same employee – in case in which the period of employment exceeds 33 months as well as in case the number of agreements concluded for the definite period is higher than three, the employment agreement will be considered as concluded for the indefinite period.

The amendment also introduces new notice periods of the agreements concluded for the definite time – they shall depend on the period of employment at a particular company.
