How long can a company keep you as a Temporary employee before you are given a permanent position?
As long as they desire. Many companies never make you a full-time employee. When you become full-time they have to pay workman's compensation and other things. It's cheaper for them to have part-time or temporary workers. I agree that the law imposes no per se limit on the length of time an employee may be considered temporary. However, in most states this does not affect legal obligations such as workers' compensation or unemployment insurance. A temporary employee is still an employee. Employers do not pay WC or UI insurance on true independent contractors as opposed to employees. Employer-provided benefits are a different story. Many companies use the designation "temporary" to define the class of employees who are not eligible for these benefits (e.g., vacation, life and health insurance).
