Then, how long can a company keep you as a temp?
Most importantly, contractors and temps should beengaged for defined purposes and a limited period of time (usuallyless than one year). Companies violate employment laws whenthey misclassify or "co-employ" contractors. Co-employment mostoften occurs when a worker from a staffing agency is treated likean employee.
Likewise, do temp jobs look bad on resume? A common mistake professionals make when referencingtemp jobs on their resume is writing down the name ofthe wrong employer. So when adding a temporary job toyour resume, you need to list your recruitment agencyas your employer. Always include the start and end dates ofyour employment with the agency.
In this regard, can Temps be fired for no reason?
Temporary employees don't have any senseof job security. (Although employer can, generally, fireanyone, they usually do not. Almost all employerswill work with a regular employee to solve problems beforeterminating the person.)
What is considered long term employment?
A long-term position is oftenconsidered to last beyond six weeks, or if you work morethan 1,000 hours in a 12 month period. Part-time employeeswork less than forty hours a week, but a full-time employeetypically works 40 hours per week every week, and often receivesbenefits.
