Fixed Term Contracts Policy pdf format

1.0    Policy Statement

It is Birkbeck policy to ensure, as far as possible, security of employment for its staff.  The College will in general offer staff open ended contracts when staff are engaged for work.  In some circumstances however, where it can be objectively justified, it may be necessary to engage staff on a fixed term basis. Where the need for fixed term contracts (FTCs) arises, the College will ensure that staff employed on a fixed-term basis are treated fairly and their employment rights respected.

1.1    Scope

The policy for FTCs applies to all staff. However, variations in the application of this policy will also apply based on the duration of the FTC and the member of staff’s length of service.
