Part Time Fixed Term Employment Contract
This Part Time Fixed-Term Employment Contract is useful and effective for hiring staff on a part time fixed term basis; this agreement cannot be used for employing on an indefinite period.
A Fixed-Term Employment Contract is a contract that:
- ends on a particular date, or
- ends on completion of a specific task
Employees on Fixed-Term Contracts are entitled to the same rights as permanent staff working for the same employer and they are protected from less favourable treatment as compared to permanent employees by the Fixed-Term Employees Regulations.
Fixed-Term Contracts will normally end automatically when they reach the agreed end date; the employer doesn’t have to give any notice. This Contract contains two options for you to choose from; it allows for the contract to terminate automatically on the expiry of the fixed-term without the need for the employer to give the employee specific notice or not expire until and unless notice is given.
Also, this Contract allows for the employer to terminate the contract earlier, before the expiry of the fixed-term as it contains a notice provision in this regard. Without this notice provision if an employer terminates a fixed term contract, before the expiry of the fixed-term, he/she would be liable to pay the employee damages for breach of contract based on the employee's remuneration until the end of the fixed-term.
This Part Time Fixed-Term Employment Contract is fully comprehensive and flexible; it covers all practicalities and can be tailored to suit your needs. You can use this Fixed-Term Contract to employ staff for specific projects or for a specific time.
Please note that workers don’t count as fixed-term employees if they:
- have a contract with an agency rather than the company they’re working for;
- are a student or trainee on a work-experience placement;
- are working under a ‘contract of apprenticeship’; and
- are a member of the armed forces
It is a requirement under the Employment Rights Act 1996 for Employers to provide their Employees with a written statement of their main terms and conditions of employment.
