Policy Update

Due to the amount of training required for certain temporary assignments, our clients are requesting that our temps provide at least one week’s notice prior to leaving their assignment. This will allow Whitman to find a suitable replacement and have time to train them prior to your departure from an assignment.

Some assignments require more training than others, so if you cannot provide one full week’s notice, we ask that you provide at least three day’s notice. If you have any questions regarding this policy update or are not able to give any notice prior to leaving due to special circumstances, please call Julie or Lindsey at 202-659-2111.
