Fixed-term contracts of up to one year less one day are fixed-term appointment contracts. This type of contract may be closest to what was previously “Assignment for Limited Durations (ALD)” or “Temporary Fixed Term (TFT)”, but it is strictly limited in terms of duration (ALD and TFT no longer exist). Temporary appointments have an “interruption of service” lock-in period to prevent a number of TA contracts. Fixed-term contracts such as Assignment for limited durations (ALD) or Temporary Fixed Term (TFT) are still personnel contracts but are clearly time-bound and generally do not offer all the benefits of fixed-term contracts. And while these contracts can be renewed, there is usually a temporary term (for example. B 3 or 4 years) after which the same person can no longer be in office. If you are in an ALD and you reach the limit, you must take a “break service” of a time defined by the organization. In this category, it gets really chaotic. First of all, there is a very wide variety of contracts, and then the conditions can be very different for these. Second, some organizations do not consider consultant contracts to be HR contracts and govern them in accordance with the organization`s purchasing rules. As a rule, these contracts include only low benefits for workers. Consultant contracts are temporary, often short-term and often have a break in service rules.

They generally allow for greater flexibility in wage negotiations. Examples include Special Service Agreements (SSA), Individual Contractors Agreements (ICA) and others. In the non-collaborator or consultant category, things get complicated. First of all, there is a very wide variety of treaties. These contracts are generally referred to as “Consultant Contract”, “Special Service Agreement (SSA)”, “Individual Contractor (IC)” or “Individual Contractor Agreement (ICA)”. The terms of these contracts can vary greatly from one organization to another. In addition, more and more organizations do not consider these non-personnel contracts as HR contracts, but manage them in accordance with the organization`s acquisition rules. As a general rule, these contracts contain very few benefits for workers.

Consultant contracts are either temporary or service-specific and often short-term. Many organizations have a break in service rules to prevent continued employment in non-personnel contracts, but all non-personnel contracts have advantages, as they allow for more flexibility than personnel contracts. The most common “regular” staff contracts are term fixed contracts (FTAs). These are the jobs you will find in many parts of the system. The duration of fixed-term contracts (FTAs) is usually a year or two. While free trade agreements do not expect renewal, there will be no limitation and/or interruption of service if the organization decides to extend a free trade agreement. Fixed deadlines mean without anticipation of an extension. Many times (almost always?), when there are ways, however, you are good to leave after the expiration of this contract period. As a general rule, fixed term jobs are very good in terms of job security. Although they are not guaranteed, you should have more than enough time to adjust if something happens. An interesting curiosity for fixed-term contracts is that some of them can be funded by projects. These contracts then have slightly different terms and advantages..
