Q.What must an employer do when issuing a Fixed-Term contract?
Anyone who is employed on a fixed-term contract must be informed in writing by the employer, as soon as practicable, of the ‘objective condition’ which will cause their contract to come to an end, i.e.
Arrival of a specific date (e.g. contract ends on 31 Oct);
Completion of a specific task (e.g. contract ends on completion of research project); or
The occurrence of a specific event (e.g. contract ends when permanent employee returns from maternity leave).
