The UTemp Staffing Program, a division of Human Resources, is your one-stop solution for temporary staffing at the University of Washington.
We have suitable candidates in a variety of areas:
This fee is a 29% mark up over the temp employee’s pay rate. This fee helps to cover our costs for:
Example: If UTemp places a Program Coordinator at a pay rate of $14.00/hr, the total cost to the department will be $18.06/hr (which is 29% over the pay rate.).
There may be times when you have a need that we can’t meet. In such cases we work with external staffing agencies that have current, approved contracts with the UW. This allows us to quickly fill positions with short turnaround times. Agency bill rates vary depending on the agency selected. We charge a 22% fee over the staffing agency's billing rate to cover our costs for:
Temporary employees may apply for and be hired into permanent positions. When a temporary employee is offered and accepts a permanent position, the University does not pay any recruitment fees, penalties, or other charges to any vendor.
Example: If UTemp places an agency employee in a Program Coordinator position, at a pay rate of $14.00/hr, the total cost to the department will be $14.00/hr plus the bill rate percentage of the staffing agency plus 22%. Say the staffing agency’s bill rate is 40%, the above example would calculate as follows: $14.00/hr plus 40% equals $19.60/hr plus 22% equals a total cost to the department of $23.91/hr.
We assess a $75 fee if you cancel a job order after we have referred a suitable candidate for placement.
In order to recover our administrative costs, we expect a temporary employee to remain on the UTemp Staffing payroll for at least one month, or two pay periods, before a department hires the employee as a direct hire hourly employee. Should a department directly hire a temporary from UTemp Staffing into an hourly-paid appointment before this time period is up, we charge the department a prorated fee of $400.
Example: If UTemp Staffing places a temporary employee who is hired directly by the employing department one week after the assignment's start date, the department will be charged a fee of $300, which is equivalent to ¾ of $400. However, if the expectation is that the assignment is to be less than a month in duration, and the department does not directly hire the temp employee, no fee will be assessed.
