I believe I am on a permanent contract at work. My employer

This answer was rated:

Hi, I believe I am on a permanent contract at work. My employer cannot find my original contract. They now want me to sign a new fixed term contract. I have found my copy of the original contract and it states I began my continuous employment on 29/4/09 with no end date. Does this mean the same as a permanent contract? Thank you

Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.

Yes that would be a permanent contract. If it was not it would have an end date (such as a fixed term contract) or you would be on a zero hours contract where no work was guaranteed o you at all.
