Fixed Term Contracts

Everyone has one!

Who/why attend


South African businesses are continuously revisiting their workforce strategies and structures as disruptors take their toll on inflexible employment models. Fixed-term contracts (FTC’s) remain at the forefront of flexible employment solutions. Although they are extremely valuable and legitimate, they have become highly regulated by statute and case law adjudications.

This workshop is ideal for:
Line managers, HR practitioners, LR practitioners, consultants, unions, employment administrators, TES owners, managers and business development managers.

Course Objective

Artboard 1 copy

This workshop will help delegates gain a better understanding of how to manage the end-to-end fixed-term contract value proposition to increase business performance, including financial performance, skills availability, risk mitigation and transformation. It will also give delegates the knowledge to help ensure that they act within the bounds of the law when FTC’s become long- term, recurring and/or inter-twined between assignments.
