and whatever budgetary considerations you may have. Temporary
employees' pay rate ranges are negotiated with them based on
and market value of those abilities.
Why is there such a big difference in what the temporary
employee is paid and what my company is billed?
At first glance,
the difference may seem large. But, as the employer of
employee, we are responsible for all
including FICA and Medicare matching federal and state
unemployment, workers’ compensation, liability
insurance, HR and administrative costs and benefits
for our employees.

You can end the assignment at any time. However, please try
to give a good time-frame estimate at the beginning of the assignment

provided to you upon request.

There is no fee to our candidates. We provide weekly pay,
401(k), paid holidays and vacation days.

They are both. If you have a job that might require ongoing
needs, we will try to make freelancers available to you. Either
way, we'll make you aware of their status and the candidate will
commit up-front to the time frame you've specified.
What if the temporary employee finds a permanent job and
has to leave the assignment with my company?
If, for some reason,
the temporary employee has to leave, we ask them for two
weeks’ notice so that the transition is

We will assist both the temporary employee and you to bring
about a mutually satisfactory arrangement. Our permanent placement

the hire is not satisfactory during the guarantee period, we

What about confidentiality? What about ownership of art/product?
The temporary employee's agreement with LandaJob extensively
covers all confidentiality issues, including ownership of work
done. All materials produced by the temporary employee during
their tenure with you are the sole property of your company.
What info do you need from me for you to find the right
potential temporary employee?
Take time up-front to give the most information possible.
That will help us make the best match. We need to know specifically
what type of work they'll be doing, what software/hardware they'll
use, what the environment is like and budget issues.
