What is the main type of employment contract?
It is the open-ended employment contract. Fixed-term employment contracts are permitted in exceptional cases, when the limited duration is justified by some specific (‘objective’) ground, such as the time required to perform a specific task for the employer. Where there is no such ground, the contract is deemed to be open-ended, even if it has been agreed as being fixed-term. Moreover, where there continues to be a specific (‘objective’) ground, the renewal of a fixed-term contract without limit is permitted. Where the specific ground does not exist, it will be presumed to be an open-ended employment contract.
