A temporary employee is an employee working 6 months or less in a calendar year. A temporary employee working more than three months, should not be working more than 29 hours a week. If an employee is working more than 6 months in a calendar year or more than 29 hours a week for an assignment lasting more than three months, he or she may be considered a regular employee and therefore may be eligible for benefits.
Please visit Employee Relations and Employment for more information.
You may hire a temporary worker through the use of a placement agency with the assistance of an Employment Specialist and approval by the Office of Budget and Planning. A temporary worker hired via an agency is NOT a Brandeis employee and the agency is paid through Accounts Payable.
