I was recently contacted about an opportunity to do web design on a contract basis. This is a temporary position and the employer is not looking to hire after the project is over. I was recently layed off from work and I am seeking a full time job w/benefits. I know this would be great experience to have while I am looking for a full time job, but I am not sure how this contract business works.
Because I would like health benefits, I would still be job searching during this time. If I did find a full time job during this contract position, I would want to leave. Would I be legally bound to the company that hired me for the contract position? Would I get into some legal trouble?
It would be great if someone could shed some light on their experience.
Thank you very much.
