Permanent employees (full or part-time)
These are the most common type of employee. Permanent employees have the full set of employment rights and responsibilities.
Employees have to meet certain criteria to qualify for some employment entitlements, such as parental leave, parental leave payments, annual holidays, sick leave and bereavement leave. There may be small differences between full-time or part-time employees because of their work patterns.
Fixed-term employees (full or part-time)
A fixed-term (temporary) employee’s employment will end on a specified date or when a particular event occurs. A fixed-term employee might be someone who is brought in to replace another employee on parental leave, to cover a seasonal peak or to complete a project.
There must be a genuine reason based on reasonable grounds for the fixed term and the employee must be told about this reason.
