For Existing Temps

On receipt of a signed authorised timesheet, you will be paid weekly direct into your bank account on the Friday following the week you have worked.

Temps are entitled by law to 10 days paid leave per year. This is proportionate to the actual hours you work, referred to as “rolled-up holiday pay” (4% of the hourly rate for example £10.00 = £10.40 per hour). You will not receive any further payment for holiday taken and you are not entitled to payment for sickness or lunch hours.

You will be entitled to receive payment for a Bank Holiday provided that you are in an assignment that is continuous and covers the period both before and after the Bank Holiday in question. You do not have to work on a Bank Holiday if you are not obliged to.

ASL are your employer you should contact us in the first instance.
