What is the construction or operation contract?

Verified 28 October 2021 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)

A private sector employee can be hired on a site or operation contract.

The construction or operation contract shall be concluded for an indefinite period.

It ends when the work or operation is carried out.

The collective agreement or a company agreement lays down the conditions under which it is possible to have recourse to a construction or operation contract.

The collective agreement or company agreement shall determine the following measures:

  • Size of the companies concerned
  • Activities concerned
  • Information on the nature of the work site or operation
  • Remuneration and termination benefits
  • Training guarantees
  • Method of termination of the contract when the site or operation cannot be carried out or is terminated early

The termination of the work site or the operation is a justified ground for breach of the contract for real and serious reasons.

The dismissal for personal reasons then applies.

If any treaty provisions as provided for, an employee dismissed at the end of a construction or operation contract may be given priority for re-employment in DTA: titleContent in the company.

Please note

in the absence of a collective agreement or a company agreement, it is possible to conclude a construction or operation contract in sectors where its use is customary and consistent with the exercise of the profession. For example, in a company in the construction industry.
