Someone who is working on either a temporary or full-time basis is considered to be employed. The employed designation applies, irrespective of a person's status as a temporary worker or as someone who has been hired on a full-time or part-time basis. Individuals who are temporarily absent from their jobs are still considered to be employed. The concept typically applies to people who are at least 16 years old, and is an essential ingredient in the calculation of the number of full-time equivalent positions within an organization.
