Contingent Workforce for Small Business

A contingent worker is a temporary outsourced employee, such as a freelancer, contractor, or consultant. They can be an excellent resource for small businesses who need to fill in the gaps of their team’s skill set. Not all temporary workers are contingent, though; seasonal workers, for instance, are official employees.

If you’re not sure whether or not a worker is contingent, play it safe by reading the Employment Law Guide or talk to an employment lawyer.

Is an Intern a Contingent Worker?
Typically, yes. Because an intern’s employment with a business ends at a predetermined time, they’re considered part of a contingent workforce. This isn’t always the case, though. Depending on the hiring agreements, some interns will cross the line from contract worker to employee. Review their contract carefully if there’s a grey area.
