Time-Off Requests or Sickness
Let us know if you need to schedule an interview outside of your assignment due to a doctor appointment, family emergency, etc. Please inform us in advance so that we can make scheduling arrangements with our client. If you are sick and unable to report to work, please contact your manager at Greer and, whenever possible, the company you are assigned to as well.

You will be paid the Friday following your first week’s assignment via pay card or direct deposit to your personal bank account. Additional timesheets can be found under the forms page.
The following items are necessary to process payroll:
- Completed federal and state tax forms. If you need to change your deductions, you can download new tax forms and fax them to our office completed and signed.

Time Reporting Process
All time is due by 9:00 a.m. on Mondays!
*Please note that if you accept an assignment with The Greer Group after signing up for direct deposit or the Pay Card, your account information will remain in affect with Greer indefinitely. Associates must notify their Client Service Manager to confirm your deposit information is correct when a new assignment begins. It is the associate’s responsibility to make sure the information is up to date! If your account is closed or overdrawn, it is up to the bank’s discretion to return the money. Greer requires 7 days to change from one option to the other or to make changes to another bank account not on file.
