Indefinitely valid employment contract

The employment contract is valid until further notice, unless it has been agreed for a fixed term for a justified reason. A fixed-term employment contract signed without a justified reason at the employer’s initiative is considered to be valid until further notice.

Terminating an indefinitely valid employment contract must be done by one of the contracting parties. When terminating the employment contract, the parties must observe a notice period. In order to terminate an employment contract, the employer must have a proper and weighty reason for dismissing the employee as defined by law.
