Fixed-term employment agreement (ET005)

Employers should use this fixed-term employment contract when they wish to take on an employee for a period which ends when either a specified date is reached, when a specified event has occurred or when a specified task has been completed. The agreement must be provided to the employee within two months of their start date. The agreement deals with the job description and other related matters such as annual leave entitlement, salary, sickness, benefits, disciplinary procedures, confidentiality etc. The general rule is that employers must not treat fixed-term employees less favourably than permanent employees doing the same, or largely the same, job taking into consideration, where relevant, whether they have similar levels of skills and/or qualifications.
