8. Entitlement and termination terms in Greece

An indefinite employment agreement is regarded employment with a probationary period during the first 12 months of the agreement, which may be terminated without notice or severance compensation during the probationary period, unless the parties agree differently.

After the initial 12 months, the employee cannot be terminated without the employer's prior written notice, which takes effect on the day the employee is notified.

These regulations apply to all types of terminations, including collective dismissals of non-workers. No notice is required when terminating employees.

A fixed-term contract may be terminated without notice by either the employee or the employer prior to the end date for a 'significant reason'. Significant reasons are occurrences that occur throughout the employer-employee relationship that make it hard to continue in good faith with the agreement. If there is a compelling justification, the employer is not required to provide compensation.

Additionally, the labor law states that upon termination, a fixed-term employment contract that includes a provision for early termination in compliance with the required severance computation is automatically converted into an indefinite-term employment contract.
