In the situation of full-time employment, the signature of a written labor contract between the employer and the employee is compulsory. The contract shall be signed before the end of the first month of employment. If the employer does not enter into a written contract with the employee after the lapse of more than one month of effective work but less than one year from the date when the employee is employed, the employer will have to pay penalties to the employee up to twice his salary per month of noncompliance.

If an employee still does not have a signed contract one year after starting his/her employment, the employer is automatically deemed to have concluded a labor contract with a non-fixed term.
