Contract Employees

Here’s what you need to know about being a contracted employee with Boly:Welch.

Guidelines & Resources

Your B:W recruiter will be your key point of contact for questions about your assignment. Any concerns about your role and workflow should be directed to your onsite advisor.

On Assignment

While you’re on assignment, it’s important to stay in touch with your Boly:Welch Recruiter. Here are some key matters to keep us aware of:

  • Your safety is critical. Please follow all workplace safety policies and exercise good judgment. If you experience an on-the-job injury, notify us immediately so we can promptly resolve and process a claim. All on-the-job injuries require a drug and alcohol screen upon receipt of medical attention.
  • Contact your Boly:Welch recruiter if your employer asks you to drive while on assignment, handle cash or valuables, or change your job duties substantially.


Punctuality and regular attendance are essential to our mutual success. A few things to keep in mind as a Contract Temporary employee:

  • Arrive 10-15 minutes early on the first day of your assignment.
  • If you’re going to be absent, notify your recruiter at least two (2) hours before your shift starts.
  • If you’re going to be late, let your recruiter know your estimated arrival time.
  • Need to take time off? Notify your recruiter at least two (2) weeks in advance, and request time off in your Paycom portal via desktop or app.
  • ‘no call, no show’ is grounds for disciplinary action and/or termination. Likewise, a ‘no call, no show’ on consecutive days is a voluntary termination of your employment.
  • Let your recruiter know about commitments that may interrupt or limit your time on assignment.
  • Clothing and appearance should be professional and align with your workplace dress code.
  • Any equipment, supplies, ID cards, badges, or other employer-supplied items should be used for business purposes only and returned at the end of your assignment. Holding items beyond that point could be considered theft and result in your termination as a Boly:Welch employee.

Employee Discounts

  • You’ll save 22% on monthly wireless service plans through AT&T.

Payroll & Paychecks

  • Timecards must be received by 10:00 am each Monday through the duration of your assignment.
  • You will receive an email with your login credentials and a tutorial on how to enter your time into our timekeeping and payroll software, Paycom. If you do not receive this by your first day of employment, please reach out to your recruiter.
  • We offer Direct Deposit for all of our Contract Temporary employees. To enroll, please submit your bank account information within your Paycom profile.
  • If you haven’t set up Direct Deposit, your paycheck will be mailed to you. 
  • When we determine it’s safe to be back in our office, you’ll have the option to pick up your paycheck before 10am on the Friday after you submitted your time card. Please bring your ID with you.

We require written authorization before releasing your paycheck to anyone other than you.

Contact our Payroll Department at [email protected] with any questions.
