Contingent workers are assuming a greater role in today’s organization. With that as a background, discuss compensation and benefit issues associated with the following workers: part time, temporary, independent, and flexible/telecommuting.

One generally sees a high volume of contingent workers in the retail/wholesale/distribution industry as they gear up for holiday seasons and such.  In my company, the Auto Parts retail stores business, our season begins in April with the warmer weather and generally slows down in November and December when families stop driving on vacations.

Our sales pick up during that period so we staff our stores with what we call “Variable Service Part-Timers” which is nothing more than a contingent worker.  Please share your experiences with contingent workers and how they are compensated.  How does the fee process work for contingent workers (a) when they are hired; and (b) when they are converted to a permanent position?  Fewer employees today have full-time jobs than ever before. The last statistic showed a 10% decrease in full-time jobs in the last 5 years. What can be done to reverse this trend and still compete internationally?…
