what is diffrent between temp and perm staffing?
From India, Pune

Are you intending to understand this from a theoritical stand point ? Or do you need to implement this in your organization?

Figuratively , Temporary or contractual staffing is a short term based assignment , for which a talent is hired. This kind of a hiring decreases the liability of an organization , as these assignment may not include all the benefits which the organization may offer its full time employees. More importantly , since these staffing are for a shorter duration these are primarily outsourced on a vendor payroll . This makes the transition of the talent post assignment hassle free to the organization.

Whereas permanent staffing includes the Full Time employees who are hired for roles which are likely to work for a much longer duration. These employees are on the payroll of the company , liable to every benefit offered by the company and generally follow the '58 years slab' for retirement. The legal requirements to this role needs to be clearly understood as many roles are 'Employment -at-will' .

Please study beyond these initial definitions. You would find some document on this topic in the link attached. Please do use the research tab to read more.

Permanent staffing / Temporary staffing / Full time employment / Part time employment all have diffferent meaning. Even in some cases its industry specific also.

From legal point of view the major difference between Permanent staffing and Temporary staffing is... in case of permanent staffing there is no fixed employment period (length of employment) in the employment contract, only age of retirement is mentioned whereas in case of Temproray staffing there is always a specified employment period (length of employment) in the employment contract.

As far as benefits are concerned almost all benefits are applicable for temprorary staffs as permanent staffs.

Earlier most of the labor regulations were directed towards permanent employment, but now stiuation has changed a lot.

================================================== ========

Just want to share.... recently i was going through a document on Labor Regulation and Employment in India’s Retail Stores

According to which :

Permanent employees are defined as all paid employees that are contracted for a term of one or more fiscal year and/or have a guaranteed renewal of their employment contract and that work 8 or more hours per day.

Temporary workers are defined as all paid short-term (less than a fiscal year) employees with no guarantee of renewal of employment contract and that work 8 or more hours per day
