Changes to the Employment Code


Law 93/2019 has been published in the official gazette, Diário da República and, among other legislation in the field of employment, it amends the Employment Code itself. 

Apart from some specific rules on the application of the law over time (some of which will be referred to below), Law 93/2019 will come into force on 1 October. 

Among the many changes this law introduces, one highlight is the important restriction on the use of fixed-term contracts and temporary work. The new law reduces the time limits and the grounds on which these forms of hiring can be used.
