Info -

seasonal contract


implicit or explicit contract of employment where the timing and duration of the contract is significantly influenced by seasonal factors such as the climatic cycle, public holidays and/or agricultural harvests

Context: Info

Another feature which distinguishes this working sector is the high turnover of workers on a seasonal contract, partly of non-EU origin, which can make it diffi cult to create coherent training programmes and to plan for prevention activities in the working environment.
