Starting the Process
Once the department has determined that they need a temporary employee, a request can be made to the U-TEMPS office for assistance. UAMS requires that each department allows U-Temps the opportunity to fill their temporary positions. The exception to this rule is nursing. Once U-TEMPS is contacted, we will work to fill your request with the most qualified individual. The selection process can be handled by the department, U-TEMPS or a combination of the two.
Once Your Temporary Employee is Selected
If U-TEMPS makes the selection of the employee, we will notify you either by phone or e-mail of the person.
By the first day of the assignment the manager should have:
- Notified the department employees that a temporary employee will be starting.
- Has a workspace designated for the temporary employee.
- If not before, on the first day, requested computer log-on ID with the IT department and any other special access.
- Have a person who is assigned to be the supervisor of the temporary employee that will have signature authority for the timesheet.
Once Your Temporary Employee Starts
Once the temporary employee arrives at your location, please go over with the temporary employee your departmental guidelines. Hopefully you have shared this information with U-TEMPS prior to placement so that we can also cover these item with the employee.
These guidelines should include:
- Dress code of the office
- Job responsibilities
We also suggest the temporary employee be introduced to the rest of the staff and shown the layout of the office.
Ending the Assignment
You can end an assignment at any time, when you feel the service is no longer required. In some cases the department feels comfortable to notify the employee, in other cases the department can notify U-TEMPS and we will notify the employee. In either case, please contact U-TEMPS to let us know that the assignment has ended.
