I have a temporary contract. Can a probationary period be included?

Whether a probationary period may be included in a temporary contract depends on the duration of your contract and whether a collective labor agreement or personnel guide applies. In principle, no probationary period may be agreed for fixed-term employment contracts of 6 months or less. This also applies to temporary employment contracts in which no end date has been agreed, such as for the duration of a project.

For temporary employment contracts of more than 6 months but less than 2 years, a trial period of 1 month may be agreed. Only when other rules are included in your collective labor agreement or personnel guide, other rules can apply.

For temporary employment contracts of 2 years or longer and for permanent employment contracts, a probationary period of a maximum of 2 months can be agreed. Only when other rules are included in your collective labor agreement or personnel guide, other rules can apply.

Please note: your employer must record in writing the duration of your probationary period. This is never longer than 2 months.
