The hiring of short-term, seasonal, contract or otherwise temporary employees is on the rise among U.S. businesses. In fact, the nation’s labor force currently includes more temp workers than ever before. Small-business owners can use temporary help to their advantage. By enlisting a short-term employee to complete a specific project, you can avoid hiring full or part-time permanent staff for which your company may not be financially ready. Just like any other employee, most labor laws apply to temporary workers. Employer requirements vary by state, but you’ll typically pay worker’s compensation, Social Security and Medicare. All federal tax withholding laws also apply to seasonal and temporary employees.
