When are timecards due?

If you are unable to obtain your supervisor's approval email, please contact us no later than 9:30 a.m. Monday. Although paychecks are issued biweekly, we perform in-house processing every week.

Why am I entitled to overtime?
Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, contract employees are compensated on an hourly basis and as hourly employees are entitled to be paid time and a half for any hours over 40 worked in a one week period.

What if I have worked an assignment through Cobos Group and later the client company calls me to come back in any capacity?
Our clients sign a contract directly with Cobos Group agreeing that for a period of 12 months from the commencement of the original assignment they will not directly hire or contract with an Cobos Group professional who has worked with them. If a client contacts you, you must notify Cobos Group so appropriate arrangements can be made. If you fail to follow this procedure you, along with the client, would be in violation of our contract
