Q.Can a Fixed-Term employee ever be treated in a less favourable manner?

Yes, less favourable treatment is permitted if the employer can show such treatment is ‘justified by objective grounds’, where the less favourable treatment is intended to help the employer achieve a ‘legitimate objective’, and it is ‘appropriate and necessary’ for that purpose. 

Less favourable treatment based solely on the fixed-term status of the employee is not an ‘objective ground’ and is therefore prohibited by the Act.
