Fixed Term Employment AgreementA Fixed Term Employment Agreement establishes an employment contract between an employee and an employer that lasts for a specific period or until a specific event.
This agreed-upon end date can be a calendar date or upon the completion of a specific task or role.
Fixed term employees are different to casual contracts. Firstly, fixed term employees are either full-time or part-time employees as opposed to casual employees who work irregular hours. Furthermore, besides being employed for a fixed amount of time, these employees have the same rights for work conditions as permanent employees. A fixed term employment agreement is an appropriate solution when hiring someone for a specific amount of time, or to replace someone for a specific period.
All employees should have a written Employment Agreement. An Employment Agreement is a great way to lay out the terms, expectations, and responsibilities of a new employee.
Use this Fixed Term Employment Agreement if:
- You are hiring a part-time or full-time employee for a specific period of time or until a specific event occurs.
- You want to clearly establish an employee’s rights and responsibilities.
