Frontline Source Group offers a wide-range of benefits to candidates representing us in their new position as our contracted employee. The benefits we provide for temporary and temp to hire candidates include:
Temporary Employee Benefits
Direct Deposit Payroll
The direct deposit of payroll checks is available to employees whose assignments are expected to last longer than 10 business days.
Once you have worked 1350 hours for us on a temporary assignment, you will be eligible for holiday pay for 6 predetermined holidays. Each holiday will be paid at eight hours if full time or four hours if part-time of your regular and current hourly rate.
In order to qualify for holiday pay, you must be at your current assignment and work the day before and the day after the holiday, unless the client’s office is closed. Holiday pay is only available to individuals that have been placed with a company and is not available for individuals who are on our payroll system but have been recruited by the client company. The paid holidays under this benefit include: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
Because we value your long-term commitment to our company and our client, we have established a vacation payout based on the number of hours worked. You will be awarded one 40-hour week of pay, at your current pay rate, for each 1900 hours worked during the combined current year and prior calendar year period.
If you would rather take this vacation pay as an extra check instead of taking the time off, this is also an option. Contact our Payroll Department by emailing email@example.com in order to receive an extra 40-hour paycheck in addition to the current week’s income.
To qualify for vacation pay, you must be on an active assignment at the time of the payout, and you may use hours accrued from the current and/or prior calendar year. We cannot allow vacation awards to be taken as single days. Vacation pay is only available to individuals that have been placed with a company and is not available for individuals who are on our payroll system but have been recruited by the client company. All contract employees on assignment will receive one payout for each 1900 hours of work completed.
Medical Benefit Options
After a comprehensive evaluation of the requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the marketplace options available to us, we chose to offer two medical plans to all temporary and contract workers employed through us.The first plan is a “minor medical”, limited benefits plan sometimes referred to in ACA language as a “skinny” plan or a fixed indemnity plan. It pays a fixed amount for covered items and is meant to serve as a supplement to major medical insurance, not a replacement. The cost is minimal and the coverage is very limited. We pay half of the employee cost. Spouse and family can be added. The annual outpatient maximum is $2,000; hospital inpatient benefits are $500 per day. Limited dental, vision, disability, and life can be added for an additional charge. Plan specifics are available upon request on a separate document.
The second plan is a wellness/preventative plan that does not cover accident or illness claims. It does cover certain “wellness” benefits (immunizations, checkups, and screenings) as promulgated by the ACA. This plan satisfies the ACA “Individual Mandate” requiring all workers to have ACA compliant health insurance. As with the fixed indemnity plan, we will pay half of the employee only cost.
