For temporary workers

A new contract is issued for each assignment undertaken, and must be signed within 48 hours of the start of the placement.


  • The objectives for the role, and reason that temporary resource is required
  • The contract period (with anticipated end date)
  • The specific requirements of the role
  • Any necessary qualifications
  • The location of the assignment and working hours
  • The rate of remuneration offered
  • The number and type of work permit held, in the case of foreign personnel
  • Where necessary, the type of personal protective equipment that the temporary employee shall use


Each assignment provides for a trial period, the duration of which may not exceed:

  • 2 working days for contracts with a duration of one calendar month or less
  • 3 days for a duration of between one and two months
  • 5 days for any contract of more than two months’ length

The trial period is not repeated in the event that the contract is renewed or extended.


Monthly gross payments to interim staff include the following:

Completion Allowance (I.F.M.) 

10% of gross salary, intended to compensate contractors for the benefits associated with permanent positions to which they are not entitled. It is paid at the end of each assignment.

Please note—IFM is not applicable to the following cases:

  • ‘Temp-to-perm’ assignments, where the interim staff becomes a permanent employee
  • Training contracts
  • Early termination of the contract at the employee’s request
  • Dismissal on grounds of misconduct

Paid Leave Compensation (I.C.C.P.) 

Offered in lieu of paid annual leave and represents 10% of your total compensation.


For each day worked, reimbursement up to 50% on presentation of proof of purchase of a season ticket (weekly, monthly or annual).

Dining Vouchers

Any meals or dining allowance provided to permanent employees will also be provided to interim contractors.


Timesheets are used to determine your pay and it is imperative that you return them to the agency on the last working day in the week. It is essential that their approval is confirmed with both the signature of the department head and the official company stamp.


Salaries are paid via electronic funds transfer on the 11th day of each calendar month.

You can request an interim payment of up to 70% of your working hours for previous weeks (by transfer only), provided your timesheet has been properly approved and submitted.


In keeping with Article ART.R.4624-10 the Labour Code, every employee must be medically examined.

You are therefore required to attend a mandatory appointment with the occupational doctor, to ensure that you’re fit for the demands of the role in question.


If, during the course of the assignment, you are the victim of an accident at work, you should inform your Sintel agent as well as the client company within 24 hours. We will then make the declaration of work accident (CERFA No. 60-3682) within 48 hours of notification.

The agency will issue a work accident certificate, allowing any medical expenses related to the accident to be met directly.


It is of the utmost importance that you provide up-to-date documentation (such as your passport, working visa or identity card) including new copies whenever they are renewed. Without these documents, no work may be undertaken.
