In my opinion, fixed term contract end when the period expires, it has nothing to do with retirement age. Give a call to the Labour Department see what they say.

The Minimum Retirement Age 2012 specifically mentions that it does not include a person who is employed on a fixed term contract of service, inclusive of any extension, of not more than twenty four months.

Therefore if a person is hired on a fixed term contract of service for more than 24 months, the Act is applicable to him.
