Temporary Work FAQs
Below, we have tried to answer some of the questions you may have regarding working on a temporary basis:
How do I get paid?
Your wages will be paid directly into your bank account, a week in arrears each Friday and your wage slip will be emailed to you.
How do I get my timesheet?
Unless otherwise agreed, a timesheet will be faxed or e-mailed to your place of work for the attention of your Manager every Friday morning. This must then be sent back to us by Friday evening or Monday by 12pm at the latest. Please check with your Line Manager to make sure they have sent the timesheet back to us.
What if I don’t have my P45?
Don’t worry you can complete a P46, download one here (click link), or let us know and we can give you a copy to complete, this allows us to deduct tax on an emergency code until the right amount of tax to be deducted is worked out.
Do I receive holiday pay?
In accordance with the Governments Working Time Regulations, you are entitled to 5.6 weeks’ paid holiday each leave year (the holiday year runs from 1st January to 31st December). A weeks’ holiday will be the equivalent to your ‘normal’ working week. If you start work part way through the year your holiday entitlement will be pro rata’d. We can tell you how much holiday entitlement you have accrued if you email email@example.com. Please note holiday pay cannot be carried over to the next year.
Do I get paid if I don’t work on a Bank Holiday?
No holidays don’t get paid automatically, if you wish to be paid for a Bank holiday then you must still follow the normal procedure to request a paid holiday.
How do I request a holiday?
Notice of holidays must be given in good time; at least one week before the period of leave you wish to take. To request paid leave please contact the team again via email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know the dates you wish to take.
