How to submit your timesheets

How you submit your hours depends on the client you work for. Certain clients have their own process that you need to follow, but you will always be advised about each process beforehand by your Recruitment Manager.

To give you an example, there are generally three ways to submit your timesheets:

  • Printed timesheet – either a Morson or client-specific timesheet
  • Online timesheet
  • Client collected hours
     

There might be exceptions to this and if you are unsure, you should contact your Contractor Care Team for further clarification.

“If you are one of our many contractors who submits their hours by completing an online timesheet, you will be sent a copy of the user guide once your Morson account is completed.

 

Holiday and leave requests

Depending on which pay option you have chosen, if you are contracting as a PAYE employee directly through your client or through your umbrella company, you will be entitled to a certain number of paid holidays.

How do I request a holiday or leave?

If you wish to take a holiday or request some leave time, you will need to fill in a holiday request form and holidays will need to be approved by your line manager. Your Contractor Care Team or line manager will be able to provide you with the appropriate forms should you need to book annual leave.
