Temp Workers May Struggle to Find a Regular Desk in Corporate Legal

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, corporate legal departments may be relying more upon contract or temporary workers to help prevent burnout among overworked employees or round out the expertise needed to tackle high stakes issues like privacy. However, the question of whether a temp gig can lead to permanent employment may have no easy answers. Corporate Counsel reporter Frank Ready checked in with TRU's Jared Coseglia for his input.

"Jared Coseglia, founder and CEO of TRU Staffing Partners Inc., noted that some legal departments may be leveraging temp workers to prevent burnout and subsequent defection from top performers. ...

"Instead of hiring someone and trying to get them up to speed, companies may be supplementing their staff privacy attorney with temp worker expertise.

"'That is actually what we see happening, and that is a shift that we’ve seen in the last six months, particularly in legal departments, because a lot of people lost head count. But they still have things they have to do to be regulatory compliant. So they are bringing in ad hoc resources that have unique specialization,' Coseglia said.

"If legal departments make clear in those job descriptions that an opening has the potential to become permanent, they may stand a better chance at attracting top talent and even persuading candidates to leave other full-time gigs. According to Coseglia, 1 of out every 5 workers that TRU Staffing Partners has placed into a contract position since the beginning of the second quarter has either been converted or is in the process of being converted into a full-time employee."
