In today’s economy, managers are sometimes forced to cut down on their head count and then in turn start relying on their part time employees and some freelancers to fill in the gaps. Below are some helpful tips on managing your part time employees.
Since your employee will be limited in the office, it is most important that you clearly define their job description, don’t just give them several miscellaneous job tasks to complete.
Assign your part time employees to projects rather than putting them on teams and in departments. Remember that your part time employees are just as important as your full time employees. Don’t treat them with any less respect then you would a full time employee.
Understand the relevant employment law. Each state has its own laws when it comes to how much time off part-time employees are allotted, both for daily breaks and for vacation time. If you don’t have a benefits administrator at your company, the U.S. Department of Labor’s website provides the relevant compliance laws for part-time employees in your state.
