Advantage Personnel is a staffing service offering temporary employment assignments. Due to the nature of temporary employment, you will have complete discretion to elect to accept an assignment when requested to do so, and you may exercise this discretion without suffering any negative consequence or penalty.
Overtime is paid at a rate of time and a half is paid as per provincial employment guidelines. A working week is from Sunday to Saturday. However, overtime will only be paid when authorized, in advance, by the client.
Sick Leave/Vacation Leave
As an “elect to work” employee, you are paid only for the hours you have actually worked, and that have been verified by our client. In lieu of vacation time, you will accumulate 4% vacation pay. Your accumulated vacation pay can be requested at any time within the guidelines of our vacation time and pay policy.
As an employee of Advantage Personnel, you are covered under our Worker’s Compensation. All injuries or accidents must be reported to Advantage Personnel ASAP, no matter how minor in nature. We have an obligation with the board to report any injuries or accidents, we have in place a modified duties program to ensure employees are able to return to work as soon as possible.
Many of our Temporary Employees who accept long term assignments with Advantage Personnel are given the opportunity for permanent employment with our clients. Although we encourage this process, it would be inappropriate for you, as an Advantage Personnel employee, to solicit our client for such opportunities. In the event that you are approached by our client for permanent employment within their organization, please inform your Personnel Consultant.
