I have read the clause, and this provision is a standard one in employment contracts.

Customer
a- can i be terminated for any reason - b- if terminated do they need to pay me till end of my contract?
img

John Melis, Expert

The employer will pay you in accordance with the terms of the contract.

Customer
does that mean that the contract being for an outer limit period they will need to pay me until the end of the contract or just the notice period in line with fair work act?

John Melis, Expert

The company needs to pay out your contract as per its provisions.

Customer
thanks, ***** ***** if I understand correctly in thsi case the provision will be a 3 year contract, so if I'm terminated before the end of the contract i will need to be paid for the remaining time of the contract.
