Agreements to complete a job and agreements to perform work are often used by employers, because they provide them wither greater freedom when using workforce. The biggest advantage of these agreements is a more flexible legislation concerning their conclusion, course and termination, where employers are not so significantly limited by the rules of the Labour Code as in the case of employment relationship. However, there are often situations where employers do not agree the manner of termination in such agreements.
Therefore, as of 1 October 2015, if no manner of termination has been agreed by the parties, the manner of termination of the legal relationship resulting from such agreements will be regulated by the Labour Code. The employee and employer are still entitled to agree to terminate such employment, and they may also terminate the agreement without giving any reason, subject to the 15-day notice period.
The main restriction for employers is represented by the immediate termination of the agreement, because such termination may only be used by the employer for work performed outside the employment relationship in situations where the employer could terminate the employment relationship with the employee immediately.
