Forms of employment
The university has various forms of employment. Below, you can read about how they affect you as an employee and about aspects such as maximum contract terms, function-based contracts and how long a temporary contract term is.
Employment contracts and appointments
The Public Servants (Standardisation of Legal Status) Act (Wet normalisering Rechtspositie Ambtenaren) entered into force on 1 January 2020. With effect from that date, all employees are employed at a university on the basis of an employment contract. There is no longer a difference between an employment contract and an appointment. For more information, see the website of the VSNU.
