What’s The Difference Between A Temp Worker And A Contract Worker? ​

Temporary staff recruitment.

A temp role covers the position of an employee who is sick or on leave. Temporary positions typically have a loose end date and can last anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks. Temporary staff are usually paid hourly rather than pro-rata.

Contract staff recruitment.

Contract roles are typically a little longer, and they have more defined terms and lengths, such as pay and hours. The contract stipulates a precise end date and has a set salary to be paid pro-rata. Contract staff may also be entitled to sick pay and other benefits.
