What is a Temporary layoff employee

In Australia, temp, casual and contract work are just the many other options to gainful employment outside the traditional full time arrangements we are familiar with.  It is said the flexibility of working conditions in Australia has been one of the success factors responsible for the country’s  sustained economic growth for the past 21 years running. There should be a similar flexibility in working conditions in the Philippines that would allow an employer the ability of hiring employees according to the seasonality of his business needs. Of course, this should not be an excuse to exploit employees similar to the current practice of local employers deliberately churning their employees every 6 months to avoid giving them permanent status.
