A company will typically pay a staffing company for "temporary" talent. In the software industry these temporary positions can be preferable to full time positions and can therefore last a very long time. There are times when the staffing company pays the employee as a business instead of hiring that person as a W-2 employee.
The staffing company bills the hiring company and pays the employee. What is the typical fee for this arrangement?
Why do some hiring companies refuse to allow 1099's by the staffing company to the employee? It seems that there would be less liability rather than more.
If the hiring company does a contract to hire, is there a fee that is received by the staffing company if the contract goes to term?
Has anyone, after the contract term, cut out the staffing company and had the employee company deal directly with the hiring company? This should presumable come with a bump in rate to the employees' company.
