Interim Credentialing Assignments

If desired, an exempt staff member may be compensated for taking on an interim assignment.  This can be done either by providing the staff member a one-time payment or by adjusting the staff member's salary for a temporary period of time. There are general guidelines listed below.  If you are considering either option, contact Compensation for more information on appropriate rates and methods of payment.

Salary Adjustment

If the interim assignment is going to be three months or more, an adjustment to the staff member's salary may be the best method.  If this is the preferred method, contact Compensation to determine an appropriate amount.

Listed below are some basic steps to process a temporary pay adjustment for an interim assignment:

  1. Work with HR to determine an appropriate adjustment to the staff member’s monthly salary.
  2. Submit a PAF to establish the interim assignment.
    • Indicate the increased monthly salary (and an interim title if necessary)
    • Indicated the expected time frame
    • Indicate a reason for the change
  3. Once the interim assignment ends, submit a PAF to bring the staff member's salary back to the original amount.  Make sure to be mindful of the payroll deadlines when making these adjustments. Mistakes could cause a staff member to miss a paycheck or to be overpaid.

One Time Payment

For interim assignments that are less than three months, a one-time payment provided at the end of the interim assignment may be the best method.  If this is the preferred method, contact Compensation to determine an appropriate amount.

Credentialing is a pre-condition of work assignment at all of our client facilities. Any delay in providing the requested information will most likely result in a delay in your credentialing process and, unfortunately, a delay in our ability to place you on an assignment which could lead to the Client to request an alternative Candidate.  In some cases, a Client may not allow Mission Search to even submit a candidate for consideration of assignment without certain credentialing documents already in hand.  In other words……’The Early Bird May Catch The Worm.’

To maintain confidentiality and to expedite your credentialing process, DO NOT SEND credentialing documents to the recruiters or HR.
