Q:
What types of positions does LaSalle Network specialize in?
A:

LaSalle Network offers temporary, temporary-to-permanent and permanent opportunities in all areas and industries of Accounting and Finance, Technology, Administrative, Call Center, Human Resources and Executive Search.

Temporary can range from a one day assignment to several months, depending on client need.

Temporary-to-permanent is an assignment that begins as temporary, but has the potential to transition to permanent employment, based on employee performance and attitude, as well as client need. A temporary-to-permanent assignment is a time for both the client and Field Employee to “interview” each other to determine whether it is an ideal long-term fit.

Permanent employment occurs when the candidate is hired directly onto our client’s payroll.

Q:
Why use a recruiter?
A:

LaSalle Network has access to job opportunities that are not listed on job boards or company websites. Recruiters are involved in a broad range of business relationships and networks dedicated to connecting qualified talent with open career opportunities.

Many of our clients solely use LaSalle Network to identify candidates for their permanent and temporary-to-hire positions due to the relationships that we have developed over the years; thus, LaSalle Network can be your advocate – opening doors, giving career advice and overcoming objections for you.

A:

In order for an absence or tardy to be excused, Field Employees are required to report their absence or tardy by calling the LaSalle Network office at least one hour prior to their starting time.  This includes leaving a message on the 24-hour voicemail at 312-419-1700.  If the Field Employee leaves a message on the voicemail, LaSalle Network may contact the Field Employee to discuss his/her absence. If the Field Employee is unavailable when such contact is made, the Field Employee must return the call or stop in the LaSalle Network office within 24-hours.

Field Employees that will be late to work must also provide an estimated time of arrival. If a Field Employee will not be working his/her entire shift (leaving early) for any reason, the Field Employee is required to notify LaSalle Network (via telephone or e-mail) within one hour of leaving the worksite; this includes if the client is sending the Field Employee home early.

If a Field Employee has a scheduled court date, the Field Employee is required to provide a minimum of 48-hours notice to LaSalle Network.

Employees are also responsible for requesting vacation days. Field Employees should notify their Project Manager in writing PRIOR to the scheduled or requested vacation day off.

Payroll

Q:

Q:
Where do I return my forms?
A:

You may email us at payroll@lasallenetwork.com, fax them to 312-589-6764, or mail them to 200 N. LaSalle St., Suite 2500, Chicago, IL 60601. We will also accept a picture of your forms if it is legible.

Q:
What happens if my paycheck gets lost in the mail?
A:

In the event that your check is lost in the mail, LaSalle Network can issue you a check at any time; however, LaSalle asks that Field Employees wait 10 business days before requesting another check, as lost checks are normally located in that time period.

There will be a $25 Bank Service Fee deducted from your reissued check to compensate for the cost of placing a Stop Payment on your lost check. All Field Employees receiving reissued checks must come into one of our office locations and sign an Affidavit, stating that they did not receive their paycheck, and that if they were to cash said paycheck, they will be held liable.

To avoid lost checks, resulting in delayed payment, LaSalle Network encourages enrolling in our direct deposit option.

We are willing to waive the $25.00 if you enroll in direct deposit or our Global Cash Card. Our hope is to avoid the issue moving forward.
