A temporary work agency,
or temp agency or temporary staffing firm finds and retains
workers. Other companies, in need of short-term workers, contract with the
temp agency to send temporary workers, or temps, on assignment to work at
the other companies. Temporary employees are also used in work that has a
cyclical nature that requires frequent adjustment of staffing levels.
A temporary agency may be distinct from a recruitment firm, which seeks
to place permanent employees, but there is often a large overlap: a
permanent employee may start out as a trial temporary worker.
Many temporary agencies specialize in a particular profession or field of
business, such as general industrial labor, accounting, health care,
technical or secretarial. Some even "specialize" in odd-jobs.
A temporary agency may have a standard set of tests to judge the
competence of the secretarial or clerical skills of an applicant. An
applicant is hired based on their scores on these tests, and is placed
into a database. Companies or individuals looking to hire someone
temporarily contact the agency and describe the skill set they are
seeking. A temporary employee is then found in the database and is
contacted to see if they would be interested in taking the assignment.

When a temporary employee agrees to take on an
assignment, he or she receives instructions pertaining to the job.
Information is provided on the correct attire to wear, hours of work,
the wage to be paid, and who to report to upon arriving. If a
temporary employee arrives at a job assignment and is asked to perform
duties not described to him or her when accepting the job, he or she
is expected to call the agency and speak with a representative. If he
or she then chooses not to continue on the assignment based on these
discrepancies, they will most likely be subject to loss of pay and
will scupper their chances of job opportunities.
It is up to the temporary employee to keep in constant contact with
the agency when not currently working on an assignment; by letting the
agency know that they are available to work they are given priority
over those who may be in the agency database but have not made it
clear that they are ready and willing to take an assignment. A
temporary agency employee is the exclusive employee of the agency, not
of the company in which they are placed. The temporary employee is
bound by the rules and regulations of their direct employer, even if
they contrast with those of the company in which they are placed. For
example, if a temporary employee is asked by the company in which they
are placed to lift a heavy box, they may respond "I am sorry, my
agency does not allow me to perform that task. I wish I could help.
Please feel free to contact my supervisor there for more information."
Temporary employees are in a constant state of employment flux because
they are never guaranteed consistent employment, nor are they assured
of a solid start or finish date for their assignment. A temporary
employee's assignment can be ended at any time, even in the middle of
its projected time frame, without explanation. This causes potential
turbulence in cases of discrimination, which is usually handled
internally between the employee and the agency.
