Employment Contracts

An employer may rely on fixed term employment contracts to provide it with the flexibility it wants.

After all, these contracts are neat and tidy: they begin at a certain point and end at a certain point often, no notice of termination is necessary as the contract determines its own termination.

But as useful as these contracts may be, their termination may well contain a considerable sting in the tail, as employees argue (with some success these days) that they had a reasonable expectation that the contracts would be renewed.
