What rights do temp workers have?
Every temporary job is different. Some temp workers are offered benefits such as health insurance or vacation days, but many are not. Employers are not required to offer benefits or pay employer taxes for temporary workers. They may also terminate temp jobs at any time with no warning. Additionally, employers may have less legal responsibility for temp workers’ safety than other workers.
However, temp workers do have the same protection from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation that all workers do. For more information, contact an Austin employment attorney at 512-330-0017.
