WATSON DWYER TEMPORARIES, INC.
EMPLOYEE PROCEDURES & ORIENTATION GUIDELINES
Speak directly with your Watson Dwyer Temporaries, Inc. (WDTI) Consultant or leave a voicemail, 24 hours a day, regarding any matter related to you employment:
Late arrivals to the job site or if you are unable to work a scheduled shift due to illness
The client ends/extends an assignment or approaches you regarding a full-time position
A problem develops between you and a co-worker or supervisor
The work required is beyond your capabilities

The rate of pay for specific assignments is based on the skill sets required. You may accept or decline any position offered. However, once you accept an assignment you are required to complete the duration of the assignment.
It is illegal to accept a permanent position without a written agreement between WDTI and the client company. Without this agreement, legal action may occur. All fees for permanent placement are paid by the client company and remain confidential. There is never any cost to you.
You are responsible to contact your WDTI Consultant weekly regarding your availability for work. Failure to let us know that you are available for work will result in the assumption that you are not actively seeking employment.
ON THE JOB
Remember, you work for WDTI and not for the employer to whom you are assigned. You must contact your WDTI Consultant one day in advance if you need to be excused from a day of work. This allows us the opportunity to find a replacement if necessary. We will notify the on-site supervisor. Documentation may be required within 24 hours of an absence to be excused.
Causes for immediate termination from your assignment and/or future temporary assignments and possible prosecution:
Failure to call in your absence will be considered a NO SHOW/NO CALL and result in an automatic termination
Any unexcused absence, excessive tardiness, or abuse of scheduled breaks
Voluntarily leaving an assignment before the appointed time or prior to the scheduled ending date
Use of intoxicants and/or non-prescribed drugs on an assignment at any time
Reporting to work under the influence or consuming alcohol or drugs on a job site
Physical and/or verbal abuse, including conduct considered sexual in nature
Forgery and/or any misrepresentation, including hours reported on time cards, or any other criminal conduct
The workweek begins Monday and ends the following Sunday for WDTI payroll. You are responsible to turn into our office, in a timely manner, the correct hours you have worked each week.
You must fill out completely an individual time card for every job to which you are assigned and obtain your on-site Supervisor’s signature. Without this signature we cannot pay you. You are responsible to fill in and submit all time cards to WDTI per the following instructions:
Use blue/black ink when filling out the time card, write legibly and press firmly
Designate whether or not your assignment will continue
Indicate whether or not your paycheck should be mailed
You will be paid on an hourly basis, rounded to the nearest quarter hour
Hours worked over 40 (forty) per week, per assignment, will be paid at time and one half
Lunch periods and scheduled breaks are not considered paid time
We request that you fax a copy of the signed time card to our office on Friday or on the last day of your assignment if that is prior to Friday. We must receive a faxed copy of your timecard in our office no later that 12:00 noon on Monday following the end of your workweek. TIME CARDS RECEIVED AFTER 12:00 NOON ON MONDAY WILL NOT BE PROCESSED FOR PAYMENT THAT WEEK.
Payroll is processed on Tuesday and funds for direct deposit are available in your account on Thursday. If Thursday is a bank holiday your funds will be available on the next day that banks are regularly scheduled to be open.
Paychecks are available between 8:00am and 5:30pm every Thursday, for hours worked the previous week. You may pick-up your paycheck in person or have it mailed directly to you. WDTI requires receipt of the signed copy of your time card prior to the release of your paycheck. WDTI is not responsible for postal delays or lost, missing and stolen checks. Temporary employees may be assessed a charge for the stop payment fee for requests to reissue a payroll check. To avoid this issue we encourage you to set up direct deposit.
