\"Le contrat à durée déterminée

Comme son nom l\'indique, le CDD est un contrat de travail qui doit être établit pour une période non durable.

On peut vous le proposer afin de remplacer un salarié absent de l\'entreprise, pour renforcer une équipe dans le cadre d\'un accroissement de l\'activité ou pour un emploi saisonnier. Mais cela doit être du \" temporaire \" et non du définitif.

C\'est pourquoi des durées maximales existent pour ce type de contrat. Que vous remplaciez un salarié absent ou que vous soyez embauché pour surcroît d\'activité, votre CDD ne peut excéder 18 mois. Pour un emploi saisonnier, la durée maximale doit, logiquement, correspondre à la saison pour laquelle vous êtes engagés.

\"Fixed-term employees can compare their conditions to: employees who are not on fixed-term contracts and are employed by the same employer to do the same or broadly similar work. \"

\"DEFINITION

A \"fixed-term contract\" is distinct from other forms of temporary employment in that it has a specified start date and a specified end date, for example:

\"This appointment will run for three years from (date) to (date)\"

(2) EXPIRY OF FIXED-TERM CONTRACTS

Under current employment legislation, when a fixed-term contract comes to an end and the employer decides not to renew it, then the law regards the employee as having been dismissed. If the decision not to renew the contract is due to factors such as lack of funding, the employee is also redundant.
