Why should I read the Temporary Workers Handbook?

We have compiled this handbook to inform you of all the policies and procedures that apply to you while employed as a temporary worker with HR GO. Here you will find information on how to turn in your timesheets, when you'll get paid, your legal rights, how to handle personal time off and much more. It's important that you read it through carefully and ask your consultant to explain anything that might need clarifying. 

By reading this guide you can:

  • Help ensure that you are always paid on time by following correct procedures
  • Learn what your rights are and what steps to take if you encounter problems
  • Discover what resources are available to you
  • Understand what's expected of you so you know how to meet expectations
  • Set yourself up for success in your role

In addition to this online guide, you may also be given access to a client handbook which will give you specific information regarding your assignment.

We hope you find your time with HR GO valuable and rewarding. If at any time during your employment you need assistance and your line manager is unavailable for any reason, please don't hesitate to contact your consultant. Our job is not done when you find your new role - we are always here to support you.
