  1. Within 30 days from the date of expiration of the labor contract, both parties must sign a new labor contract; during the period of not signing a new contract, the rights, obligations and benefits of both parties shall be performed according to the signed contract;
  2. If the 30-day period elapses from the labor contract expiration date without signing a new employment contract,  the definite term will become an indefinite term labor contract;
