From 6 December 2023, new rules apply when engaging employees on fixed term contracts.
A fixed term contract terminates at the end of a set period (for example, the contract ends on a set date or after a set period of time or a season).
The new rules include a requirement for employers to give any employees they’re engaging on a new fixed term contract a Fixed Term Contract Information Statement (FTCIS).
They also include some limitations on how fixed term contracts can be used. There are some exceptions to who these limitations apply to which means they don’t apply to all fixed term contracts. The limitations also don’t apply to casual employees.
