Incase we use temporary workers from a staffing agency for 6 months and then want to extend the time that he works here for another 6 months, does the extension affect her status as a temp employee? Is there a limit to how many times/how long she can work as a "temp?"

I think if he's an employee of the staffing agency (she gets her paycheck from them and not from your company) you can extend her time and she's still their employee. But if he's paid by your company as a contract worker I think the IRS might say he's your employee depending on the position and if your company treats her like an employee.

I think it might depend on the agreement/contract you have with the temp agency. If you were going to hire the employee outright, the temp agency would probably charge you some kind of finder's fee. They might put a limit on how long you get to keep considering her a 'temp' for this reason. You should check everything you have in writing on this from the agency.
