Fixed-term Employees (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations 2002 come into force

Implementation date: 1 October 2002

The Regulations give fixed-term employees the right not to be treated less favourably than permanent employees of the same employer doing similar work. The right applies where the less favourable treatment is on the ground that the employee is fixed-term and is not justified on objective grounds. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
