Contingent labor at Harvard refers to those workers whose limited tenure work arrangements differ from “regular,” benefits eligible employees. This can include temps, less-than-half-time (LHT) employees, interns, independent contractors and workers provided by outside staffing and temp agencies. FAS hiring managers may need to bring in a contingent worker to augment the regular workforce, backfill an employee on leave, fill in for a staffing vacancy, or gain access to specialized skills and knowledge.
Note: This does not include term employees or part-time benefits-eligible employees.
Several options are available to FAS hiring managers who may need to hire contingent workers.
