The EA does not establish a distinction between contracts according to their duration (i.e fixed term contract v. contract of indefinite duration). The distinction under Zambian employment law is between oral contracts of employment and contracts which are required by law to be written, which are not in practice the usual form of employment contract in Zambia. This dichotomy is reflected in the provisions regulating termination of employment.
Contracts required to be in writing under sec. 28(1) EA, are those which are made for a period of service exceeding six months; contracts of foreign service; and contracts to be performed personally in relation to some specific work (a fixed task) which could not reasonably be expected to be completed within six months.
