Paid Time Off

A TLC Employee will accumulate vacation and sick time as follows:

  • For every 1200 hours worked, the employee will receive 20 hours of paid time off.

Pay is calculated at the base pay rate for each employee. Once the 1200 hours are reached, the employee may opt to use their paid time off in any of the following ways:

  • Request time off at least 2 weeks in advance, and receive compensation for the time off (paid at employee’s base rate).
  • Carry the time over (capped at 60 hours).
  • Sell the time back to TLC at the employee’s base rate of pay.

Vacation time is not pro-rated, i.e., the employee cannot work 800 hours and request 15 hours of vacation – employee must reach 1200 hours in order to receive any paid time off.

Referral Bonus

Here are how it works… You refer potential employee and…

  • You get $50 when they get their first paycheck
  • You get another $100 when they have been here for 90 days*
  • You get another $150 when they’ve been here 6 months*
  • You get another $200 at their one-year anniversary*
  • That’s a total of $500 just because you talked about TLC Nursing and suggested to qualified folks that they apply here! Think about it – when you refer only 4 people who stay here with you for one year, you’ll be adding $2,000 to your pocket!

FAQs

Yes, you do. The application process for most states is fairly simple and straightforward – you can easily search for and find the information for a particular state online.

We pay weekly, every Friday, or via direct deposit. Our pay period runs Sunday through Saturday, so anything after midnight on a Saturday overnight shift would fall onto the following pay period’s check.

We do provide housing (or a housing allowance if you prefer to do that yourself), and the housing is private. If a particular assignment included housing, which would need to be shared with another traveler, we would inform you ahead of time so that you can consider that in your decision-making process.

We have three offices throughout Vermont and one office in New Hampshire. However, we do have travel assignments throughout the country.

The type of facility we work with primarily is Long Term Care facilities. We also work with correctional facilities, hospitals, and clinics.

We pay our travelers as much as we can and all of them are paid the same for the same position. This ensures that everyone is being compensated fairly, consistently, and competitively.

Of course! You are our employee, even if the nature of the assignment doesn’t afford us with the opportunity to see one another regularly. You can reach out to your recruiter or the relevant department when needed. You can reach us by phone, email, or even come into our office if it’s something you’d like to address in person.

You can extend for another 13 weeks! If the facility you’re currently working at no longer has a need for additional staffing support, we can arrange for a contract elsewhere. You can extend your contracts back-to-back if you’d like to take some time to return home before starting the additional contract, you can do that as well.

You sure can! We can try to arrange for housing which is pet-friendly. If there are any pet-related fees, however, they would be your responsibility. We also inquire about the type of housing you would need and can try to find housing to accommodate other members of your family. If we’re unable to fulfill your needs, we can provide you with a monthly housing allowance so that you could make the arrangements to ensure that you get what you’re looking for.

You bet! Make sure we know who this friend is and you’ll get a referral bonus.
