Securing a new contract can be an exciting time, but it can also be a hectic time.

With so much going on, it’s easy to overlook or miss things, and when it comes to rates, terms and conditions, the last thing you want is any mix-ups.

It’s why we at Big Fish always recommend that you get your KID (key information document) before you start your assignment so you clearly understand what is going on when you begin your new assignment.

Why are your KIDs important?

Your agency issues a KID and should provide you with all the essential information you need before starting your assignment.

Your KID will outline your employment status and relationship with your agency and show when you will be paid and who by. It should also give you an example breakdown of your pay and any fees and deductions made when you get paid. These details are essential to help you understand your pay during your assignment.

Other details shown in your KID can include how often and when you’ll be paid, and you can expect to be given a new KID if there are any significant changes to the details or terms of your assignment, such as a change in rate.
