Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The fixed-term employment contract will always represent a precarious employment relationship. This type of contract, created to ensure the needs of the employer, represents a severe instability in the worker's life, given the limited duration of his professional relationship. This precariousness becomes even more relevant in face of a termination of the fixed-term contract of a worker, mother or father, who is in the exercise of their parental responsibilities. In this way, the protection of parenthood guarantees a special protection to those workers in terms of termination of the contract. This dissertation aims to analyze the balance between the expiration regime in the fixed-term contract and the protection of parenthood.
