What we found interesting in chapter 14 was the contingent workforce and the type of workers that fall into that category. Contingent workers have no real demand for ongoing employment and their work schedule is based on the employee’s convenience and the needs of the employer (Martocchio, 2009). An example of a contingent worker would be a freelance makeup artist. They work when a client needs them, but ultimately it’s at their convenience. Chapter 14 also contains information about a Lease company and a Temporary employment agency. The difference between a Lease Company and a Temporary employment agency was a little confusing to me. We understand that both a temp agency and a lease company place qualified employees on a job. The lease company is designed to be long term; however, there are some temporary assignments that have result in long term employment. The similarities are so close; it’s almost hard to distinguish the difference.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
