A temporary employee is the best way to fill a short term or indefinite need and provides maximum flexibility to manage staff resources. The temporary employee is considered a Lawyer’s Staffing employee; we will bill you an hourly rate that includes all costs.
Temp-to-hire employment combines the flexibility of temporary staff with the opportunity for an extended trial period before hiring. During the trial period, the employee works as if on a temporary assignment, combining all costs in one hourly rate. Temp-to-hire legal secretaries and receptionists are available at no additional cost to you after working for you while on our payroll for 480 hours. Paralegals, other legal specialists and attorneys are eligible for hire, at no additional cost to you, after completing 1000 hours on our payroll. If you would like to hire an employee prior to completion of the required hours, you can do so by paying a pro-rated fee that is set forth in our Terms and Conditions.
A direct hire is appropriate when a search is required to find an outstanding candidate with specific skills and experience. It provides the maximum size candidate pool as all presently employed candidates are considered. A search/recruiting fee calculated on starting base salary is paid for finding an ideal candidate that is immediately hired by your organization. The search fee is comparable to internal hiring costs. However, a much larger candidate pool is developed and risk is minimized by the Lawyer’s Staffing guarantee outlined in our Terms and Conditions.
Attorneys are available on a temporary basis for many reasons, including but not limited to, relocation, recent graduation from law school, corporate restructuring due to merger or acquisition, supplemental work while opening a practice, or the need to work a flexible schedule for various reasons.
