No more of employment contracts for a specific task

According to the amendment to the Labour Code prepared by the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy from 20 October 2014 the provisions of the Labour Code – in the scope they refer to employment contracts for the period of performance of a specific task – will be revoked.

From the aforementioned results that the intention of the legislator is to limit the types of employment contracts to three: employment contract for a trail period, employment contract for an indefinite period and employment contract for a definite period. At the same time however the list of exceptions included in art. 25 §4 of the Labour Code was extended (art. 25 §4 of the Labour Code provides a list of exceptions from the rule under which the employment period of the employee employed for a definite time shall not exceed 33 months and the number of employment contracts concluded for a definite period may not exceed three). The new wording of art. 25 §4 of the Labour Code contains namely also the employment contracts concluded for a definite time in order to perform work for a given term of office.

It appears that the aim of such change is to enable excluding the largest group of employment contracts for the period of performance of a specific task, i.e. the agreements concluded to perform work for a given term of office, from the aggravated regimen of employment contracts for a definite period.
