    Section 198 B (4) of the LRA specifically provides for nine circumstances that justify the employment of employees on fixed term contracts. While probation was initially proposed as a tenth justification for fixed term employment, probation was omitted when the LRA amendment act was promulgated in 2014.

    Would it be in the interests of the economy, employees and employers for probation to be included as a circumstance that justifies the employment of employees on fixed term contracts?
