Madagascan Labour Law prohibits hiring fixed term contract workers for tasks of permanent nature. An employment contract may be concluded for a definite or indefinite period. A fixed term contract is a contract whose term is fixed by the parties at the time of its conclusion or its term is related to the occurrence of a certain future event that does not depend on the will of the parties.

The total duration of a fixed term contract cannot exceed two years. Fixed term contract workers are not hired for the normal activities of the organization. A fixed term contract of 06 months duration turns automatically into contract of indefinite duration after two renewals. Re-employment of a worker on fixed term contract for same position within the month of completion of one fixed term contract is considered renewal of earlier contract. If a worker keeps working even after the expiry of fixed term contract, his contract is deemed concluded for indefinite duration.

Fe-potoana fitsapana

A Decree issued after the National Labour Council determines the form and terms of probationary employment contract and its duration. Labour Code requires that probationary period must not be longer than 6 months, which is renewable once. A probation period must clearly be specified in an employment contract specifying its duration as well as the notice period required in case of contract termination during the probationary period. If a written employment contract does not provide for probation, the worker is deemed to have been hired on an employment contract of indefinite duration. The probationary contract must be concluded in writing, specifying at least the vacancy, duration, salary and occupational category.

Probation period varies according to the occupational category the worker belongs to. This period is fixed under a decree and is as under:

-          3 months for skilled and unskilled blue-collar workers and white-collar workers who do not have managerial responsibilities (cat. 1,2, 3)

-          4 months for engineers, employees with supervisory or managerial functions (cat. 4)

-          6 months for high-ranking executives (cat. 5).
