A contingent worker is an employee who does not have a specific contract that explicitly defines long-term employment with a company and instead is based on a short-term need. These employees work for as long as the company needs. Their jobs may be temporary while a specific task is performed, or they might be workers who reported they do not expect their jobs to last much longer. People who work on construction sites, those who set up phone and Internet networks for new businesses, or those who only work during specific seasons might be considered contingent workers. Related terms include temporary employee, seasonal employee, and contract worker.
