Fixed Term Workers - Correction


A correction to the previous message.

I stated that the Fixed Term Workers Directive had to be implemented by 10th July 1999. In fact, this date was a misprint in the English version of the Official Journal. The implementation date was corrected by a Corrigendum to the Directive, to 10th July 2001 with a 12-month extension if "special difficulties" exist.

So the government will not be out of time for implementing the Directive provided it can establish the "special difficulties".

(Thanks to the three people who corrected me on this!)
