(and sometimes only 3 months). They also used to only give people about 2 weeks notice that their contracts weren't being renewed
That's more like an exception. 90% of IT contracts I worked on in the past 20 years in CH, were initially 6 months, with high chance of extension (as stated in job description). Мost of my initially 6 month contracts have been extended at least once, many 3 to 7 times (in 6 months chunks every time).
Notice period was always 1 month, but line managers are usually keen enough to tell way before that they are unsure about next extension.
That's kind of rules of game here. Just don't go for agencies/end clients who break them.
