We will handle your employment paperwork, payroll, benefits administration, and other employment-related issues.

Working on contract as the employee of a third party can sometimes be confusing. We want to make this transition as smooth as possible for you. Here is what to expect during your contract assignment with us.

Employment Paperwork Process

Once your recruiter has finalized your contract assignment, you will receive an email from our HR Department. The email will contain your login information for our secure Online Paperwork System (OPS), where you will complete your employment paperwork.

When you login, you will see our “Welcome” page that will direct you through the paperwork process for your new contract assignment. Most items can be completed online, but in some cases you must print, sign, and RETURN the documents to Top Echelon Contracting via fax or scanning. Below is an example of the types of documents you will be required to complete or acknowledge:

1. Employee Information Sheet
2. Background Release Form
3. I-9 Form
4. W-4 Tax Withholding Form
5. Direct Deposit Form
6. Payroll Policy
7. Employment Contract
8. Benefits Election/Waiver Form
9. Employment Handbook

The paperwork process is critical to the start of your contract assignment and receiving your first paycheck. Please complete the process as soon as possible.

Using OPS During Your Assignment

OPS provides access to your printable timesheets and benefits information. OPS also allows you the convenience of changing your own information after your assignment has started. You can access the system securely 24/7 from any internet connection.

Payroll Cycle

Approved timesheets are due in our office by Monday at 1:00 p.m., Eastern Standard Time. Timesheets can be found in our OPS under “Additional Forms.” Employees are paid weekly based upon hours reported and approved on the timesheet. We also offer direct deposit.

If you have any questions or concerns during your contract assignment, you can contact Top Echelon Contracting’s Human Resource Department at 888.627.3678.
