I did an interview recently which I thought was a permanent position as described by the recruiter who submitted me. When talking with the interviewer about the position, he stated it was a 3 month temp to hire. While doing my post interview with the recruiter, I asked if this was a 3 month temp to hire or Perm Placement, to which he replied "What is the difference." His reasoning is "You will work in the state of Maryland which is at will."
- At-will employment is a term used in U.S. labor law for contractual relationships in which an employee can be dismissed by an employer for any reason (that is, without having to establish "just cause" for termination), and without warning, as long as the reason is not illegal.
I have googled the matter and found conflicting information, so my question is, is the a difference between X month temp to hire or Perm Placement in an at will state?
