Information about the employment contract in Malta

The employment contract in Malta must contain information about the legal conditions of the employment and the rules imposed on the company. Such aspects are explained before the contract is signed by both parties - the employer and the employee. One should know that a contract starts with at least one month of employment. The company is enforced to prepare a work contract, whether for a fixed or for an indeterminate period. There are also collective work contracts which contain the same rules and regulations, in compliance with the Labor Law in Malta.

Indeterminate contracts in Malta

An employer can offer an indeterminate work contract which must contain all the responsibilities and rights of both parties. Such contract has an indeterminate length and contains information about:
•    the working hours;
•    the salary and the days when it is paid;
•    the position of the employee in the company;
•    the responsibilities of both parties;
•    the overtime rates;
•    the holiday rights.
For a better understanding of the terms and conditions of an indeterminate contract, we suggest you to address your questions to our advisors. The same team can also offer support when registering a company in Malta.

Fixed-term contracts in Malta

A fixed-term employment contract in Malta is subject to a specific period of work and to the same conditions as for an indeterminate contract. The aspect which needs to be considered is that such contracts must be renewed for up to four years, after that, the employer is obliged to offer an indeterminate work contract, if there aren’t any reasons not to do so. We mention that a fixed-term contract in Malta must be renewed within 12 days after it expires. In Malta, each employee will be subject to a probation period no longer than six months and can be completed with a further notice from the employer
