Fixed Term Contracts

The Fixed Term Policy applies to all individuals who work under a fixed term contract of employment. The purpose of the policy is to provide clear principles and values which will govern the appropriate use of fixed-term contracts ensuring compliance with legislation governing fixed-term employees.

The policy provides a procedure for dealing with fixed-term contracts which is fair and equitable and has both the interests of the employee and the effective operation of the service as its goals.

Top Tips on using the policy:

  1. All fixed-term contracts should have a start and end date or specified duration.
  2. Fixed-Term contracts should have no more than two renewals within any one year period (unless this can be objectively justified).
  3. Fixed-Term employees should not be treated any less favourably than permanent employees.
  4. All fixed-term contract employees should have their position reviewed mid-term.
