Making a Temporary Employment Contract

  • What is a Temporary Employment Contract?

    If you need to hire some extra help for a limited period of time, a Temporary Employment Contract is a good way to get the help you need without taking on any additional risk. This contract makes sure your short-term helper hasn't confused the job with a career by setting clear expectations about what the job will entail.


    Use the Temporary Employment Contract document if:

    • On behalf of the Company, you want to hire an employee temporarily. You want to define terms and conditions for your Temporary Employment Contract.

    Whether you need to staff up for a busy time, or you need to replace someone who's going on leave, a Temporary Employment Contract sets out the conditions of the temporary position, and defines the duties of the newly hired employee, how and when they'll be paid. Unlike an Employment Contract, there are no expectations of benefits or other perks. Using a Temporary Employment Contract can provide a company with legal protection when hiring a short-term employee by making clear that the position is strictly temporary. This stipulation permits an employer to avoid the legal obligations that come with hiring a permanent employee. The temporary employee is also considered "at-will," allowing the employer to terminate the employment relationship without cause.
