Guidelines for Temps

There are some things that you can do to make your transition into work easier and more successful.

Registration
  • Bring all your documentation with you to your registration interview - otherwise you won't be able to register.
  • If you can, bring written references with you - otherwise make sure you bring the full name, address and telephone number of your last two employers.
  • Make sure you answer the questions accurately when you fill in your application forms, otherwise you could find yourself being offered work that isn't suitable.

Assignments
  • Once you are registered, stay in regular contact with your consultant otherwise they might think you have work elsewhere.
  • Contracts are often received at short notice and we need to find the most suitable applicants as quickly as possible - an Agency is only as good as its workers so we will give priority to those workers that will best maintain our reputation.
  • Only accept assignments that you are willing and able to do.
  • Make sure you arrive in good time for the start of your shift, are suitable dressed and have the necessary tools of your trade.
  • Once you are on an assignment you are under the instruction of anyone authorised by the client.
  • If you cannot attend an assignment for an unavoidable reason - such as illness - make sure you contact your consultant straight away.

Personnel Records
  • Let us know as soon as possible if there are any changes to your contact details.
  • If you gain new skills, experience, licenses or qualifications, always let your consultant know straight away.

Hours of Work & Pay
  • Your consultant will give you all the information you need when you are offered an assignment.
  • Your hours of work and rate of pay will vary from one job to another, and the length of the assignment may vary. There will also be occasions when no work is available.
  • Make sure you always follow clocking on and off procedures - we can only pay you for authorised hours and wage payments cannot be amended if you haven't followed the correct procedure.
  • Workforce will pay on behalf of the client any authorised hours recorded on your timesheet the week after you have worked.
  • Wage payments are normally made into your Bank/Building Society and are available as funds on a Friday (subject to Bank Holidays).
  • A pay slip is issued showing the amount earned and any deductions made.
  • Holiday pay must be requested in advance through your consultant, the amount paid will depend on the number of hours you work each week and the amount available in your holiday fund.

Health & Safety Information
You have a duty to:
  • Assess any risks to your Health & Safety during your assignment. You are responsible for telling the Client Company about any dangers in the Client's activities to ensure a safe work place.
  • Observe the Client's Health & Safety at work policy. To familiarize yourself with it, you should, if possible ask the company for sight of this before you start your assignment.
  • Co-operate with the Client on Health & Safety matters, following all instructions to ensure a safe system of work.
  • Take all reasonable steps to safeguard your own safety and that of any other persons who may be affected by your actions.
  • To report to the Client Company any injury or accident that occurs whilst you are on assignment to the Client.
  • Wearing any protective clothing and equipment you have been instructed to wear to carry out your assignment.

The Agency is responsible for:
  • Passing on to you any information provided by the Company on any qualifications and skills you will need to enable you to do the job safely and any Health & Safety matters connected to the job.

The Client Company is responsible for:
  • To treat you as if you are an employee for all Health & Safety matters. For example, the Company must make you aware of its Health & Safety policy.
  • To carry out an assessment of Health & Safety risks and to put in writing the result of its assessment if the Company employs five or more people.
  • To tell you the name of its authorised Health & Safety Representative. If you have any problem finding this out, contact your supervisor or your consultant.
  • To ensure you are wearing the protective clothing and equipment suitable for the job you are going to do.
  • To record any accidents or injuries in the Company's accident record book and if necessary tell the Health & Safety Executive.
