With changing patterns of work and the need for temporary workers it may be advantageous for the employer to define the period of employment. This will make the termination of employment fair and certain and avoid the swamp of dismissal or retrenchment procedures. Unless otherwise agreed, a fixed-term contract cannot be terminated during its currency without good reason. The employer must give adequate notice of the termination of a fixed-term contract. If a fixed term contract is habitually renewed this may lead to ?a reasonable expectation of renewal?.Inthisinstanceanemployeeacquiresthesamerightstojobsecuritiesasthose of permanent employees.
