Holidays & Time off

When planning time off please advise your Consultant well in advance so that suitable cover can be arranged.

This enables your Consultant to schedule your assignments in accordance with your availability, and assess any holiday pay entitlement.

Holiday/Time Off

If you are unable to attend work for any reason, please telephone Class Recruitment. We are open 8.30-5.30 Monday to Friday. If this is outside office hours please leave a clear message on the answer-phone.

Agency workers who pay Class 1 National Insurance contributions and are PAYE temps are entitled to Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) in the same way as other Employees. Entitlement will depend on whether you are working on an assignment at the time you fall sick.

If you are, then you may be entitled to SSP until the end of your current assignment. If you are not working when you fall sick however, you will not be entitled to SSP. (Qualifications Rules Apply – Please contact payroll for further information)

Smoking Policy

Most clients operate a non-smoking policy. Please adhere to this. If you do have cigarette breaks these should be deducted from the hours recorded on your time sheet.

Time Keeping

You will be notified of your hours prior to starting each assignment. Punctuality is important, always allow plenty of time for unexpected delays and aim to arrive at your assignment early. If you anticipate being late, contact your Consultant immediately.

Permanent Opportunities

We will always advise the client if you are looking for permanent employment, you may need time off to attend interviews (please ensure that you deduct the time from your daily hours).

If you arrange an interview yourself, please give the client as much notice as possible and notify your Consultant. Where possible try to arrange for lunchtime, early morning or late afternoon interviews.

It is important to maintain a high level of personal appearance whilst on an assignment. Your Consultant will advise you of the suitable dress code for each assignment.

You must follow any safety wear requirements implemented by the company you are assigned to, again your Consultant will advise you where appropriate.

Assignment Ethics

You may not always enjoy an assignment, please don’t just walk off site, call your Consultant immediately. We will do all we can to resolve any issues, find a replacement for the client and find you an alternative booking.

If you find alternative employment either through another agency or as a result of your own efforts whilst still in an assignment, we would really appreciate your professionalism in letting your Consultant know allowing adequate time for us to speak to the client and find a replacement if required.
