We work with a wide range of clients for whom we provide flexible workforce solutions. There are many reasons for temporary and contract staff –cover for short term absences (holidays or staff sickness for example), projects, seasonal peaks, additional work or to provide a company with flexibility.
Companies will come to Adecco to seek an individual, or a team, to provide additional resources and we will then match and place suitable temporary staff or associates onto these assignments. Adecco then becomes your employer and we look after your employment relationship with us and all matters related to it such as paying you. You are responsible to and work for Adecco whilst you are on assignment.
Once you have agreed to an assignment, becoming an Adecco associate (our name for temporary staff), you will then become an Adecco employee. We will pay your wages at an agreed rate for the duration of any assignment you may be placed into and we will be responsible for your health and safety and other workplace and employment matters.
As an Adecco associate, you are employed by Adecco in the workplace you may be placed into and you will be required to perform the work required of you and as directed by ourselves and our client. There may be times that we don’t have work for you. However once you are fully registered and inducted you can still remain registered and will be ready to work for us when the next suitable assignment comes along.
We are only committed to each other for the term of any assignment and both parties can give the required notice (unless due to serious misconduct or misconduct) as per your individual employment agreement at any time. You will work under the terms of your Individual Employment Agreement, (the contract between you and Adecco) that was completed and signed by you at your induction which is specifically designed for Temporary staff.
You can choose to terminate your association with Adecco at any time (with the required notice if you are on assignment).
Being employed as an Adecco temporary associate offers you the flexibility to come and go in between assignments as you please.
