FAQs BY OUR BUSINESS CLIENTS
Does AKHIRE charge employees a fee for temporary assignments?
Who do AKHIRE temporary employees actually work for?
They work for AKHIRE and are assigned to do work for our clients. Our clients are free to use our temp employees like other employees, but they are actually employees of AKHIRE.
Who does the payroll and writes the checks?
AKHIRE handles all aspects of weekly payroll and the checks come directly from AKHIRE. Our clients are billed once a week and are required to make only one payment to AKHIRE for the total number of employee hours for the week. Payments can even be made with a credit card - allowing you to float the cash for weeks depending on the card you use. In some cases you can even earn air miles.
If an AKHIRE temp employee just isn't working out what are my options?
You can call our office and request a change. AKHIRE will contact the temporary employee and explain the change and assign a different AKHIRE employee to the position, if you still have a need to fill the position.
How long do most AKHIRE temporary jobs last?

Is there a fee if a temp-to-hire employee is hired full-time?
Yes & No. In the event a temp employee referred by AKHIRE is hired directly as a full-time employee, part-time employee or contractor by you or one of your affiliates, and the AKHIRE employee has worked less then 640 hours for you, the AKHIRE placement fee will be based on this formula: 640 (minus) hours worked for the CLIENT (times) the difference between the employee's hourly rate of pay from AKHIRE and the hourly rate of pay the CLIENT pays AKHIRE. If the employee has worked more then 640 hours for you there is no placement fee to convert the AKHIRE employee.
