Who do you really work for? Tricks employer’s use
This is an insider’s tip that some employers use to exploit people. Whenever you are paid look closely at your check. If it lists any other name other than who you believe you work for, then you are really employed by the company listed. People in an unemployment hearing are usually very surprised to learn who they were really employed by. Some employers tell people that they use a “payroll company”. The payroll company is who you really work for. Most of the “payroll companies” are in fact, leasing agencies. And to qualify for unemployment after working for a leasing agency, there are many more requirements and it is more difficult to qualify for benefits. Some checks in very small print say something like “once a job is completed you must report for reassignment within 24 hours for additional work”. I have held many hearings where the individual had no clue they really worked for this leasing company, and that they were supposed to contact the employer “payroll company”, after they were fired. Typically they can be qualified for benefits since the employer hid those facts from the employee and were never told of the requirements. Pay close attention to what your paycheck says and has written on the back, and also any other type of document you are given during pay time. The secret world of employers can be a bizarre thing.
