Extra-Help Staffing

Extra-help employees relieve or augment permanent staff, as temporary employees that are not in the classified civil service and do not have property rights to permanently allocated positions.

In addition, they do not receive most employee benefits such as:

  • long-term disability insurance coverage;
  • accrual of vacation;
  • participation in the County retirement program;
  • eligibility to take promotional examinations. 

There are five types of extra-help employees:

  • Temporary
  • Intermittent
  • Seasonal
  • Emergency
  • Intern

 The full definition of each type is defined in the County's Civil Service Rule 1, Extra-Help Employee
