EMPLOYMENT, TEMPORARY

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Temporary employment comprises work under a fixed- term contract, in contrast to permanent work where there is no end-date. Employment under temporary contracts often entails a different set of legal obligations on behalf of employers; in particular, certain aspects of employment protection legislation do not apply to temporary contracts.
