The attention given to the contingent segment of the workforce has significantly increased over the past decade. Investigative topics include the correlates of temporary employee work attitudes and behaviors. This study used a correlational design to examine leader behaviors outlined by the path-goal theory of leadership, as perceived by temporary employees (N = 126), as a determinant of their organizational commitment and citizenship behaviors. The results indicated that temporary workers' affective commitment was positively related to perceptions of instrumental and supportive leadership. The latter was also significantly related to the participants' organizational citizenship behavior. Implications for both research and practice are discussed. (Contains 4 tables.)
