Example text

The legislation in all European countries permits fixed-term contracts for temporary jobs: so-called traditional fixed-term contracts. In these cases, a fixed-term contract not only makes it easier for the employer to terminate the employment at a given moment, but also clarifies the limited perspective of the contractual relationship to both parties. This explains why fixed-term contracts are often made for temporary jobs, even if the periods covered are so short that the protective legislation against wrongful dismissal would not be applicable.

Employee representatives from such companies report an above-average rate of involuntary part-time work, and managers report an above-average incidence of problems that are usually taken as a sign of employees’ discontent with their working conditions: higher turnover rate, lower productivity, higher absenteeism or lower motivation in part-time staff than in full-time staff. These structural differences signal that there are limits to dovetailing companies’ and employees’ interests in part-time work.

About three quarters of these people, according to personnel managers, would not have been hired if fixed-term contracts could not have been made for the new reasons. This means that the deregulation of fixedterm contracts created 45 000–85 000 additional jobs in 1992, and that some 15 000–25 000 people were hired on the basis of fixed-term contracts although, under the old legislation, they would have received permanent contracts. In other words, the ratio of the use to the so-called abuse of the new possibilities to conclude fixed-term contracts is 3:1.
