PETM It is that the workers do not worry if a written contract is not signed, because, if they are working subordinately, an employment relationship is established; And, even worse, if the employer wanted it to be a temporary contract, but did not sign the contract before the employment relationship began, it is understood that it is an indefinite-term contract, “he affirms.
