Labour Act, Section 4(5) (fixed-term employment contracts)

As per section 4(5) of the Labour Act, a temporary worker is one who is employed in an establishment for work that is essentially of a temporary nature and is likely to be finished within a limited period. Therefore, fixed-term employment contracts are permissible under the category of ‘temporary’ employment. However, the law does not stipulate a maximum duration for such employment.
