The law recognizes these various arrangements by the employer and the employee depending on the nature of the employment: regular, probationary, project, fixed-period or term, seasonal, casual.
These different setups are due to various reasons. For regular employment, the employer benefits from a full-time employee who in turn will receive all statutory and company benefits. Meanwhile, in probationary employment, the employer has the opportunity to assess the performance of the employee who will prove that he is suitable for the position. As for project, fixed-period or term, seasonal, and casual employments, the employer and the employee mutually benefits from an arrangement where neither one will be committed to continue employment after the expiration of he project, term, season, or incidental activity.
