Why Hire a Temporary Employee

Business purposes include seasonal customer demand, temporary surges in manufacturing orders, an employee on sick or maternity leave, and short-term, clearly defined work such as that of a census worker.

Temporary employees allow employers to maintain a cushion of some job security in employment for regular workers. Employers can let the temporary employees go first in a business or economic downturn.

Hiring a Temporary Employee

Temporary employees work part or full-time. They rarely receive benefits or the job security afforded regular staff. A temporary assignment can end at any time depending on the employer’s needs. In other ways, temporary employees are often treated like regular employees and attend company meetings and events.


Our temporary employees bring time sheets to each assignment and fill in the hours worked. Please review the time sheets for accuracy. Your signature authorizes PSI to pay these labor costs on your behalf and confirms your acceptance of the work performed. Our temporary employees are paid weekly.

PSI pays all payroll costs for its temporary employees: FICA, State & Federal Unemployment taxes, Workers' Compensation, and general liability insurance. Clients are billed weekly and invoices are due upon receipt.
