Fixed-Term Contracts

Fixed -term contracts must have a reason that justifies the transitory nature of the contract, and cannot exceed 2 years in total duration, and can only be extended once, not necessarily for an equal period. After extending a fixed-term contract, successive fixed-term contracts are not allowed without observing a 6 month-break period in between.

Probationary periods are generally for 90 days. If hired during a probationary period, the contract converts into an indefinite contract.


Workers recognize 14 national holidays as well as various state holidays. Work is prohibited on all public holidays unless expressly authorized by the Ministry of Labour and Employment.
