Fixed-Term Contracts

In Spain, fixed-term contracts must be for a reason permitted by law. Those reasons can include work for a specific project, when there is an excess of work/orders, or for filling a temporarily open position (for example, when someone goes on maternity leave). The maximum length of the contract depends on the reason for it. Fixed-term contracts can generally only be renewed once. Workers are entitled to severance of 12 days of salary per year of service at the end of a fixed-term contract. If the Worker continues working after the end of the fixed term, then the contract is automatically converted to an indefinite agreement.

In Spain, Workers recognize 14 national bank holidays as well as various regional holidays.
