Further information

The persons envisaged for hiring are, in principle, employed for a fixed term initially. The employment relationship of contract employees shall be deemed to be concluded for a fixed term (fixed term employment relationship), if it is, from the outset,

  • based on the performance of a certain work that is restricted as to time, or on a certain calendar period;
  • specified in the contract.

It can usually only be prolonged once for a fixed period of time. This prolongation must not exceed 6 months. If the employment is continued beyond this period, it will, from that moment on, be considered as if it had been concluded for an indefinite period of time (prohibition of chain contracts!).
