Fixed-term employment contracts may be cancelled by either the employer or the employee at the end of the contract period. During the probationary phase, either side may terminate the employment contract without cause. Additionally, an employer may remove an employee without notice for extreme wrongdoing. Employers are required to submit a written explanation for a significant misconduct termination upon the terminated employee's request. Employees who have been terminated for serious misconduct have the right to react to the employer's allegations. For non-serious misconduct occurring outside of the probation period, either the employer or employee may terminate the employment contract by providing notice.
A fixed-term contract has a 14-day notice period. For an indefinite length contract, the notice period is determined by the employee's tenure and the salary payment interval.
Dismissals for redundancy are governed by special rules.
The probationary period cannot exceed 12 months for skilled workers.
