How do you calculate bill rates?

Bill rates are based upon the hourly rate of the temporary employee. In addition, we include the cost of all employers’ responsible taxes, including SUTA, FUTA, Workers Compensation and unemployment insurance. In addition, we add a marginal amount tot his base to cover all administrative expenses including a drug test and background checks. Unlike the "freelancer", the temporary agency is responsible for being the employer of record and is responsible for paying the employee

We have a schedule for buyouts, please contact a Staffing Solutions, Inc. representative for details.

What is a temp?

We are the employer of record, handle all taxes/W-2

When should we use a temp?

Temporary employees are hired to assist employers to meet business demands yet allow the employer to avoid the cost of hiring a regular employee.  Sometimes, it is the expectation of the employer that if the temporary employee is successful, the temporary employee will be hired.

Most frequently, though, hiring temporary employees serves a business purpose for the company and the objective is to hire temps rather than taking on the cost of a regular employee.  Business purposes include:  seasonal customer demand, temporary surges in manufacturing orders, employees on sick or maternity leave, and short-term, clearly defined work such as a census worker.

Temporary employees allow employers to maintain a cushion of some job security in employment for regular workers.  The temporary employees can be let go first in a business or economic downturn.

Temporary employees work part or full-time.  The rarely receive benefits or the job security afforded regular staff.  A temporary assignment can end at any time depending on the employer’s needs.  In other ways temporary employees are often treated like regular employees and attend company meetings and events.

Do you drug test/background check?

What is your testing process?

What happens if we bring someone in for a long leave like maternity and they get a full time job?

Many temporary employees do temporary work to support a job search for full time employment. Should one of our temporary workers obtain full time employment while covering a medical or similar leave, the Staffing Solutions Inc. team requires a reasonable notice period to allow us to submit a mutually accepted replacement and the temporary vacating the position will be responsible for training the replacement temporary employee at NO COST to the employer.

What is protocol if we have a company function, should we invite the temp?
