Temporary employee efficiencies can be obtained through effective recruiting, orientation, training and support. These processes foster shorter learning curves and may help to reduce your department's overall costs.
All temporary employees receive an employee handbook and basic orientation that includes information on timecard procedures, basic safety, and HIPAA and compliance guidelines.
Changing an Assignment
Any significant changes in job duties or description, particularly those that may involve health and/or safety implications or job level, must be communicated to your DTS, Aerotek/Actalent or Grace Federal Solutions representative. Since all employees are selected according to their ability to perform the duties of a specific job description, any new assignments must be discussed to ensure that the employee is capable and suited for the new, or different, duties. Temporary employees are always encouraged to be flexible, but your DTS, Aerotek/Actalent or Grace Federal Solutions representative should be contacted prior to any significant changes in the responsibilities of temporary employees.
Ending an Assignment

Exceptions to this practice should be reviewed and determined by DTS. DTS, Aerotek/Actalent or Grace Federal Solutions, as the legal employer, has the responsibility for informing employees of assignment terminations.
