Fixed-term employment contract to replace an employee during their justified absence from work

Available immediately in electronic form, sent by e-mail

A replacement contract may be concluded in connection with vacation leave, illness or other justified absence of an employee. This solution is beneficial for the employer, because it allows to hire a replacement employee, so that continuity of work will be maintained. In February 2016, the regulations came into force, according to which the replacement contract will be considered a sub-type of a fixed-term employment contract and will not be distinguished by separate provisions.
