Fixed Term Employees Regulations

Employers must not treat fixed-term employees less favourably than permanent employees.

Fixed-term employees therefore have the right to:

  • the same pay and conditions
  • the same or equivalent benefits package
  • be informed about permanent employment opportunities in the organisation
  • protection against being selected for redundancy or dismissal simply by virtue of being on a fixed term contract
  • Auto Enrolment to Pension Scheme. (Employer to auto enrol eligible employees onto a suitable Pension Scheme will apply for employees on a fixed term contract).

Anyone who’s worked continually for the same employer for 2 years or more has the same redundancy rights as a permanent employee.
