This Temporary Employment Contract (the “Contract” or “Temporary Employment Contract”) states the terms and conditions that govern the contractual agreement between [Sender.Company] having its principal place of business at [Sender.Address] (the “Company”), and [Client.FirstName][Client.LastName] (the “Temp”) who agrees to be bound by this Contract.

‌WHEREAS, the Company is engaged in [DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS]; and

WHEREAS, the Company desires to employ and retain the services of the Temp on a temporary basis according to the terms and conditions herein.

NOW, THEREFORE, In consideration of the mutual covenants and promises made by the parties hereto, the Company and the Temp (individually, each a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”) covenant and agree as follows:

1. TERM.

The term of this Temporary Employment Contract shall commence on [START DATE] and continue through [END DATE]. This Temporary Employment Contract may be extended by agreement through written notice signed by both parties. 

An extension of temporary employment is not to be misconstrued as an offer of permanent employment unless the extension specifically states otherwise. 

2. TERMINATION.

The Temp agrees and acknowledges that, just as they have the right to terminate their employment with the Company at any time for any reason, the Company has the same right and may terminate their employment with the Company at any time for any reason. Either Party may terminate said employment with written notice to the other Party. 

Should either Party fail to provide written notice of termination of employment to the other, that Party shall be held liable for the total work or compensation that was owed to them during the time between the termination and the official written notice being provided. 

3. DUTIES.

The Company shall employ the Temp as [POSITION TITLE] (the “Position”). The Temp accepts employment with the Company on the terms and conditions set forth in this Temporary Employment Contract and agrees to devote their full time and attention (reasonable periods of illness excepted) to the performance of their duties under this Agreement. 

In general, the Temp shall perform all the duties as described on Exhibit A attached hereto. The Temp shall not perform duties outside of those listed on Exhibit A unless and until this employment agreement is modified in writing and signed by both Parties. Should the Temp perform duties outside of those listed in Exhibit A without a signed modification, the Company is not to be held responsible for compensation for time spent on these extraneous tasks unless and until it is shown that the Temp’s supervisor or other manager ordered them to complete said tasks. 

4. HOURS OF WORK.

The Temp’s hours of work shall be [DAY OF WEEK] to [DAY OF WEEK] at hours determined by the employer, provided that ordinary working hours shall not exceed [AMOUNT] hours per week. The Temp shall take every precaution to not exceed [AMOUNT] hours per week, and understands and agrees that they shall cease to work at or prior to this amount or face penalties up to and including termination of their position. 

5. SEVERABILITY.

In the event any provision of this Contract is unenforceable for any reason, then the Parties agree that such provision shall be deemed to be struck and the remainder of the Agreement shall be enforced as if the struck provision were never included in the Agreement.

EXHIBIT C — NON-COMPETE

The Temp acknowledges that over the duration of the Agreement, they may become familiar with confidential information or trade secrets regarding the Company through their employment relationship or involvement with other Company employees. 

Therefore, during the term of this contract and for a period of [TIME FRAME] after the Temp’s removal or the end of the contract, the Temp agrees that they shall not directly or indirectly own, control, manage, participate in, render services for, or otherwise engage in any capacity with a business competing with the Company’s current lines of business on their own behalf or on behalf of another person. 

Nothing in this Exhibit C will prohibit the Temp from being a passive owner of any such competing businesses so long as they do not have direct or indirect participation with said businesses.
