On the Job: Here Come the ‘Supertemps’

CBS News (06/05/12) Suzanne Lucas

The Harvard Business Review indicates that 58% of companies expect to employ temporary workers during the next few years, and not just in low-level jobs. The report says high-level temporary workers will earn incomes similar to those of employees or partners, especially if they have specialized skills that are in high demand. Some of these so-called “supertemps” are women with high levels of education and plenty of experience who want both a family and a career. Although temporary employment offers employers flexibility and even cost savings, companies could face the risk of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service retroactively classifying independent contractors as employees. For temporary workers, the lack of health insurance coverage and the need to search for a new position every few months pose some challenges.
