What is a temporary contract?

The concept of temporary contract refers to the employment relationship that is established between the worker and the employer to carry out an activity in exchange for a salary for a specified period of time.

Depending on the hours they include, we can find full-time temporary contracts, if you work 40 hours a week, or part-time temporary contracts if they have fewer hours.

Temporary contracts become permanent contracts if in the course of 30 months the person has been working for more than 24 months with 2, or more than 2 temporary contracts. In addition, temporary contracts have a severance pay of 12 days of salary per year worked.

Types of temporary contract

Depending on the nature of the contract, there are different kinds of temporary contracts:

  • Contracts for work and service: They have a limited but not determined limitation, since they will be extended until necessary. In any case, they cannot last more than 3 years, extendable for one more year if the collective agreement allows it.
  • Eventual contracts due to production circumstances: they are carried out to cover specific situations such as excess tasks at certain times. The contract cannot last more than 6 months in a 12 period.
  • Interim contract: the contract will be in force until the person who held that job returns.
