Pro tips:

Temporary employees who work 30 or more days are eligible to begin accruing paid sick leave. Use can be limited until after 90 days of employment. Your written paid sick leave policy should outline these terms.

Harassment Prevention Training Requirements for Temporary employees:

Beginning January 1, 2020, employers must provide training to temporary and seasonal employees, or any employee who is hired to work for less than six months. The training must occur within 30 calendar days after the hire date or within 100 hours worked, whichever comes first. In the case of temporary employees employed by an agency (as defined in Section 201.3 of the Labor Code) to perform services for clients, the training must be provided by the agency, not the client.

In lieu of training, employers may obtain a copy of a temporary employee’s current certificate of prior training and track training from that date.
