Q.When can a Fixed-Term employee be compared to a Permanent Employee?
A fixed-term employee can be compared to a permanent employee:
where both the fixed-term employee and permanent employee are employed by the same or associated employer, or
where both are employed in the same industry or sector of employment; and
where the fixed-term employee performs work which is the same or similar to, or (where different) is equal or greater in value to the work performed by the ‘comparable permanent’ employee.
