Re: Regulations on the renewal of temporary contracts

It's not illegal per se, it's illegal to do it to avoid responsibilities related to length of service, e.g. notice period, sickness absence etc. but many people would be in the dark and possibly assume that the details in the contract still apply. If you work somewhere for two years on six month contracts, they can't for example give you notice as if you've only worked there for only six months. I believe they must also give you notice instead of relying on the end-date of the contract. This is how it's worked for a bunch of us for at least 5 years. The employer wants the workers to think they're still short term employees when in fact they're not.
