From January 1, 2021 seasonal employment contracts no longer exist

According to 2019 Labor Code passed by the XIVth National Assembly in November 20, 2019.

Pursuant to the Code, from January 1, 2021, employment contracts can take one of the following forms:

  • Indefinite-term employment contracts.
  • Fixed-term employment contracts under which both contracting parties can determine contractual duration and expiry date provided that the term is not longer than 36 months from the effective date of employment contract.

This means that, in comparison to existing regulations in 2012’s Labor Code, seasonal employment contracts no longer exist.

In addition, 2019’s Labor Code (in force on January 1, 2021) allows employees to unilaterally terminate an employment contract without having to send prior notice in several following cases:

  • Employees wising to terminate employment contracts do not hold agreed-upon job positions or work at predetermined addresses; are not assured of agreed working conditions, unless otherwise prescribed in Article 29 in this Code.
  • Employees wishing to terminate their employment contracts have not received salaries in full or have been paid late, unless otherwise prescribed in clause 4 of Article 97 in this Code.
  • Employees wishing to terminate their employment contracts are suffering from sexual harassment at workplace, etc.
