In that case they are very stupid as those protections come into force
as soon as you have been with an employee for a year on whatever basis
even if the contract is not specifically a "permanent" one. The only
difference with a fixed term contract is that it can end without further
notice upon expiration of the fixed term except that if it has been
renewed and there would be a reasonable expectation that it will be
further renewed notice would be required to end it.
