Fixed-term contracts during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic

Updated on 12 January 2021

Guidance for staff who have contracts due to end in 2021

On this page

We understand that in this current period of uncertainty you may have concerns if your fixed term contract is due to end in the coming months.

If you have not recently discussed the position regarding the potential end of your contract with your line manager, then you should contact them as soon as possible to discuss this.

As would normally be the case, some fixed term contracts will finish at their expected end date, and if this is the case, you will receive formal notification of this.

If your contract is to be extended, your line manager will be able to advise you of this. We appreciate how unsettling this is and our aim will be to confirm the position with you as soon as possible
