★     Regular part-time employees



These are those staff members who have not been employed by the company in a temporary capacity but are regularly scheduled to work less than the full-time schedule list above.

★     Temporary full-time employees



All those staff members of the company who have been hired as interim replacements to temporarily supplement the workforce, during rush orders, seasonal orders or whenever higher numbers of staff members are required, or to assist in the completion of a specific project and who are temporarily scheduled to work the company’s full-time schedule for a limited duration. Employment beyond any initially stated period does not in any way imply a change in employment status, unless mandated by federal or state law.

Examples include consultants, advisors and specialists that may have been hired for a specific project and are no longer required once the project has been concluded successfully. There are two different kinds of contractual employees that the company puts on its payroll.

★     LTCs (Long Term Contracts)



Long Term Contract holding employees are those employees whose employment contract is of at least one year duration. Such contracts are generally extended as and when required.

★     STCs (Short Term Contracts)



Such contractual employees are generally hired for shorter time durations based on the needs of the company. Their duration of employment may be from one month to less than one year. And once their work is finished and their contracts expire, they are relieved of their duties. “Short term Contracts” are usually not extended and even if they are, they are rarely done so for more than once or twice and usually for the same time period as the original contract.
