This particular section of our website also serves as a place to remind you of the commitments that are a precondition to hiring as a McCall Assignment Employee. It's a review and, in some cases an update or addition, to your employee orientation and the documents you signed when you were interviewed in our offices.
I understand that Hire and Termination as an Active McCall Employee with McCall is based upon the workweeks that I am on active assignment through McCall. I am formally hired at the beginning of an assignment and employment is officially terminated at the end of the week following an assignment completion. Rehire following termination commences when I begin a new assignment. I understand that I am not an Active McCall employee during interims between Termination and Rehire.
As a McCall temporary employee, you are representing McCall at our client's workplace. In addition to our concern for you as at our employee, McCall is concerned that we (through you) contribute positively to our client's workplace.
I have acknowledged receipt of the McCall safety program and agree to comply with the expectations as outlined below:
The McCall Safety Program was designed to assist you in making your work assignment enjoyable, productive and SAFE. Please follow these rules on all job assignments.
McCall Staffing Services is committed to providing a work environment that is free of unlawful discrimination. We do not take this commitment lightly. In keeping with this objective, McCall maintains a strict policy prohibiting unlawful harassment, including harassment based on any of the following categories: race, color, religion, sex, pregnancy, disability, medical condition, national origin, ancestry, age, sexual orientation, or marital status.
Forms of harassment may include, but are not limited to, the following:
In particular, sexual harassment is defined as any unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature which (1) has been made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's employment, (2) is used as a basis for employment decisions such as promotions and benefits affecting such individual, or (3) substantially interferes with an individual's work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.
As it is not always clear when a verbal comment, gesture or touching is unwelcome or offensive, an employee is expected to clearly and unequivocally inform his/her co-worker regardless of position, that the co-worker's behavior is unwelcome and/or offensive and that s/he should stop it.
Any employee who believes s/he has been harassed by a co-worker, supervisor or agent of the employer should immediately report the facts of the incident or incidents and the names of the individuals involved to their McCall Staffing Services contact. Such employees should not fear any reprisal. You may be requested to complete an Incident Report form.
McCall Staffing will not retaliate against you for filing a complaint and will not permit retaliation by management, employees or co-workers.
After report has been received, McCall will immediately undertake an effective, thorough and objective investigation of the harassment allegations. Any supervisor, agent or other employee who has been found by the company to be responsible for unlawful harassment will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action, ranging from a warning up to and including termination.
If the internal investigation does not remedy the illegal harassment to the employee's satisfaction, the employee may file a harassment charge with the local office of the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) or notify the Fair Employment and Housing Commission (FEHC). (The addresses and phone numbers of the Bay Area FEHC and DFEH can be found on-line and/or are listed in the white pages of the telephone book.) The law prohibits any employer from retaliating against any employee for filing a charge with the DFEH, or for cooperating in any manner with the DFEH or FEHC in its investigation of the charge.
If you have any questions concerning this policy, please feel free to contact your McCall supervisor or Laura Halpin, Vice President, McCall Staffing Services.
When lifting, use the approved lifting technique; i.e., bend your knees, grasp the load firmly, then raise the load keeping your back as straight as possible. McCall regulations require that you never lift anything heavier than 25 pounds. Read more (PDF file 51KB).
Prolonged sitting at a desk or computer can cause muscular tension and pain. Taking a few minutes to do a series of simple stretches can make your whole body feel better. Your McCall Assignment Team is sending you some stretch ideas (PDF file 197KB) that you can do spontaneously several times during the day to remain comfortable and avoid feeling tense. The program will take 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Sitting as well as some standing stretches are good for overall circulation and health!
Although we as your employer make every effort to make your job safe, accidents and illnesses occasionally can occur on or from the job. If you are injured on the job or get sick from the job, you will be helped immediately. Notify the McCall temporary division as soon as you are able.
Worker's compensation is a special kind of insurance which employers purchase to help their workers who get injured or sick from diseases caused by the job.
Often people mistake it for State Disability. There is a big difference. Worker's Compensation helps injured workers when their illness or injury results from the job. State Disability is from the Employment Development Department. Assistance from State Disability is usually for illness or injury that is not caused by your work on the job.
You have already been paying for State Disability as part of your payroll deductions throughout your working career. McCall Staffing Services has purchased Worker's Compensation Insurance so that if you are injured on the job, or if you become sick from the job, you will be helped. There is no cost to you for the insurance.
It IS a big part of the costs of doing business as a temporary employee, costs that are incorporated into our mark-up on wages to our clients. The healthier the California work-force, the more money available to companies, their employees and their consumers!
Benefits is a term we use to describe our services to the injured worker. For work related injuries, our insurance covers your medical and hospital bills, plus any part of your lost wages (called Temporary Disability) as well as other payments and services described in this pamphlet. You will be referred to an approved physician or your personal physician may also be approved if we are notified prior to the date of physician visit.
How quickly you can get back to work will depend on you. That may sound strange, but it is medically true; your attitude can make the difference. Some hints we have found helpful include:
