If you have ANY INFO at all please help me!!!

I've worked for the same company for 2 years as a temporary employee. I don't get the paid days off, vacation, or sick days like the regular employees. I also didn't get maternity leave pay. I've tried to google it and everything but I don't find any laws saying they have to ever hire me. Does anyone know how long they can keep me temporary???

  • Have you applied for a full time position in the company or requested that you become a full time employee? They aren't going to just offer. I mean think of all the money they're saving by dangling the carrot!

  • FOR AS LONG AS THEY WANT!!! No work place is obligated to hire a temp employee. I have worked as a temp nurse once before, and after a year of working with them, they wanted to buy out my contract and hire me on permanently, but my contract with my agency was going to cost them $10,000, so they did not hire me. My husband worked as a temp employee with an agency at FedEx, and after working there as a temp for 6 mos, they hired him on permanently, gave him a better position, full benefits, and more pay! :)

  • The laws vary by state. Contact your state department of labor; you may be eligible for benefits.
