In November 2018, certain changes were introduced to employment agreements executed for a special job or task. Under such agreements, the employee undertakes to execute a specific and determined job or work (either material or intellectual). Therefore, its validity is limited to the work itself.
The new scheme provides that different tasks or stages of a specific work may not be individually considered as two different successive contracts, for it will be legally presumed as indefinite.
Also, any contract engaging permanent services will not be deemed as a contract for a specific job.
Lastly, these employees are entitled to vacation and a special kind of termination severance should certain requirements be fulfilled.
