Fixed-Term Contracts

Fixed term contracts are permitted by law; the maximum duration is 3 years. Fixed term contracts may be renewed, but after a series of temporary employment contracts, each with an interruption of less than 3 months, the fourth contract automatically becomes a permanent employment contract ("permanent employment"). When fewer than 4 fixed-term employment contracts have succeeded each other with interruptions of no more than 3 months and these have together exceeded a period of 36 months (including the interruptions), permanent employment is created. A contract for 3 years or more can be extended 1 time for up to 3 months without automatically converting to permanent employment.
