When fixed-term employment automatically becomes permanent employment
According to the third paragraph of Chapter 5a of the Employment Protection Act (LAS), a special fixed-term employment position automatically becomes a permanent employment position when an employee has been employed on a special fixed-term contract by the employer for a total of more than 12 months during a period, (not limited to five years), when the employee has had fixed-term employment at the same employer in the form of special fixed-term, substitute or seasonal employment and these periods of employment have been consecutive. In order for the periods to be regarded as consecutive, any gap in employment may not be longer than six months.
If an employee has substitute employment with the same employer for a total of more than two years within any five-year period, the position automatically becomes permanent.
Only employment periods in the form of special fixed-term employment or substitute employment are counted as qualifying for automatic conversion to permanent employment. It is not permitted to count both special fixed-term employment or substitute employment periods, nor is it permitted to count periods with other forms of fixed-term employment
