    Hi

    Is it OK to say in English: I have an employment contract OR I have an order contract OR I have a contract to perform a specified task.

    Thanks

    Hi

    Can you suggest something else?

    EDIT:

    Is it also possible to say: I work on the basis of an employment contract/contract to perform a specified task etc.

    "I have a contract to supply..."
    For your second question, yes it's possible.

    Thanks for the answers.

    Hmm, is it possible to "have a contract to supply ..." while you're working at school as a teacher? Maybe it's something similar to "temporary contract"? You work and they pay you only for the hours that you teach. You don't get paid when you're on a sick leave, on vacation etc.

    take care

    ***neither a teacher nor a native-speaker***
    Maybe, "on provisional basis" would do for a temporary job.

    But what you described doesn't seem to indicate any temporariness. It's more like a contract giving you limited rights.
