Doing your job is hard enough without the threat of employee lawsuits hanging over your head. But make no mistake – employees today have a WEALTH of information at their disposal about what you can and cannot do as an employer. When one mistake could land you in court, you need to be confident and secure that everything you do is legally sound. With the number of employee lawsuits on the rise, it’s never been more critical to have a thorough understanding of today’s hottestlegal issues – ones that could land your company in hot water. Think about the lost time, productivity, and money that can come from a single lawsuit – and that’s even if your company wins! Just imagine what would happen if your company lost in court.
Complaints of wage theft have risen as the economy tumbled. Allegations range from underpayment to not getting paid at all. It's definitely on the rise nationally because of the economic crisis. Employers are desperate to shave corners when their profits are going down, and some are just greedy. RTTEMPS is one of them.
Despite my cautionary writings, they routinely sign contracts replete with unfavorable terms. By doing so, they unknowingly agree to be eliminated with minimum notice, demoted or banished to far away jurisdictions, see their salary slashed and prevented from competing with their employer following their departure – all with legal impunity.
They are not paying their vendors back, they owe state taxes in a number of states throughout the country, and they have many open cases with state labor boards for not paying their employees. I am so happy to hear they are closed. They got what they deserved. I love how the "old" bitter officer of the company tries to pretend it isnt' just to save face. So sad...
Not only did RTTEMPS help me find work in a down economy, they did it with the patience and professionalism you you would want when going to a recruiter who is supposed to be working for you and not just counting you as part of their quota. RTTEMPS is also a company that is in touch with their customers using social media and being connected to their customers in more ways than one. It showed me that there are ways to go beyond traditional customer service.
Whatever this other person posted, he seems like a very vindictive and bitter individual who has nothing better to do than to wait for people to say something nice so he can submit an opposite response. It seems rather infantile. Take it from a satisfied customer, they treat their clients right and are doing something right in a time where there is so much wrong with the world.
I couldnt agree more with the earlier post. I also have come to learn that RTTEMPS is neglecting to pay their taxes in a huge number of states that they do business with. RTTEMPS has collectors blasting their phone on a daily bases for money that is long over due. Since RTTEMPS has not paid their vendors, many of their accounts have been frozen and their case has been turned over to collections. I have also come to learn that RTTEMPS is having major disputes with labor boards across the country for not paying their employees.The best part is that they even hired a PR Watchdog to try and save their internet reputation!
RTTEMPS was one of the hardest places I worked. In the role of recruiter one was expected to recruit, sell, find housing, credential files, and book travel. At the end of the day very little time was spent actually recruiting when all of these tasks were assigned to you. You would think they would hire an admin to do all of those other job functions outside of the recruiting responsibility. Another frustration was that policies would change from moment to moment without any formal written notification. In fact, the policies were sort of like urban legends – passed on via oral tradition. The training was real poor especially for those who have never been in this type of industry. I would definitely recommend a training manual. So, when the training is poor the production would be poor which contributed to the high turnover. Poorly trained employees can never meet the expectations of the company. Another reason for high turnover was that most of us felt that we were never appreciated for our hard work. I personally was never praised or rewarded. It was expected for me to do even more as if what I did was never good enough. Your compensation will never be the same as it was in your offer letter. Expect them to cut your base by 10-15K after about 6 months! How fair is that. Had I know this, I would have never taken this job. The benefits were extremely poor. The deductible was outrageous. And if you wanted to upgrade it was even worse. Thank goodness I didn’t have to have any major surgery. Lastly, the PTO (personal time off) was discretionary. They would decide whether or not you were worthy to use it. Most of the time you had to take off without being paid. RTTEMPS really needs to think about treating their employees better if they want better retention.
