  • Abstract

      The Supreme Court of the Slovak Republic (Najvyšší súd Slovenskej republiky) has ruled that the situations described in a collective agreement which justify a further extension of a fixed-term employment relationship must justify the temporary nature of their performance. The collective agreement must also specify the reasons for the temporary need to carry out those works. It is not allowed that the employer states in the employment contract the reason for the renewal of the fixed-term employment relationship merely by reference to the fact that the employee is performing the works defined in the collective agreement without stating a substantive reason satisfying the justification for doing so.
