Employment contracts in the private sector

In the private sector, the contract can take 3 different forms. In principle, it is for an indefinite period but, in certain cases limited by law, it may be for a definite period (a term is provided for). The law also provides for the possibility of concluding temporary assignment contracts. Each form of contract is governed by specific rules.
