Researchers, fixed-term contracts and universities: Understanding the law in context
Authors:
Hooley, Tristram ( 0000-0002-1453-4535 ) ; Oliver, Liz
Abstract:
This report examines UK legislation on fixed-term contracts1 in the context of higher education institutions (HEIs). Since fixed-term employment has become a common feature of working life within universities and periods of fixed-term employment have constituted a key step in many research career contexts, the legislation raises specific issues for HEIs and researchers.
