Our contract employees are the reason Burnett’s Staffing Inc. is a leading provider of the best qualified temporary and temporary-to-hire associates. To ensure our dedicated contract employees know how much we appreciate them and the outstanding work they do for our Clients, we offer a competitive benefits program that has set new standards in the staffing industry. Over the years, we’ve paid close attention to what our contract employees value in a benefits program. That’s why we are pleased to offer weekly pay, direct deposit, holiday and vacation pay, available major medical insurance, a 401(k) (or profit sharing plan), periodic recognition programs, career strategy development, enhanced online skill-training, resume appraisals, interview coaching, and flexible staffing options.
Our contract employees are paid every week and our work week consists of scheduled working hours beginning on Sunday and ending on the following Saturday. Paychecks for that period will be issued on Thursday following the end of the pay period. Paychecks may be directly deposited or mailed. If you choose to have your check mailed and your check is lost in the mail, you will be responsible for any stop payment fees.
Our contract employees who work at least 500 hours in the previous quarter, based on pay dates in the quarter, are eligible for holiday pay. Our paid holidays include:
A contract employee must be currently on a project assignment and work the day before and the day after the holiday to be eligible. The holiday pay will be paid at the current rate of pay.
Our contract employees who work at least 1600 hours in a calendar year based on pay dates and submit a request for vacation pay by January 15th of each year can earn five (5) days of vacation pay based upon their average hours worked and average pay for the year. After verification of hours and pay, checks will be issued by January 31st. The paid vacation is based on the average rate of pay and the average number of hours worked each week during the year. The hours accumulate over a calendar year only and cannot be carried over from year to year.
Skill enhancement is available to employees at no charge. Increasing your skills can increase your rate of pay. Additionally, by working certain temporary assignments, an employee can elevate skills, gain valuable experience and expertise, and generally increase their total worth to a company, while at the same time earning a paycheck.
