Is there a limitation on the length of time that an employee can be classified as a temporary employee?

April 3, 2024

No. There are no federal laws defining how long an employee can be considered “temporary.” The time frame can vary based on an organization’s budget considerations and business needs. For example, an organization may only need to hire employees for an increase in sales over the holiday season or to cover the position of an employee on leave. Even then, the employee on leave may need to shorten or extend their leave time, or the holiday “rush” may start or end earlier than the organization projected.
