Frequently asked questions for our team
No, there is no fee to the applicant. Your rate is negotiated with Woven Legal at the start of each contract.
It depends on the number of hours. If your assignments through Woven Legal total 30+ hours per week, your working status will be a W-2 employee and you will be eligible for medical and dental benefits. If you work fewer than 30 hours per week, you will be brought on as an independent contractor.
Yes, this is an option for our clients. However, this is something you must willingly accept.
Each resume is carefully reviewed by our Placement Team against our open positions. If you are not a fit and we are interested in you for future opportunities, we will ask to keep your resume on file.
Never. Your resume will not be distributed anywhere without your prior consent. Our recruiter will discuss the job description, location, work environment and any applicable information with you before sending your resume to any of our clients.
Our model is to contract or hire for permanent positions – not temporary contracts.
Paychecks are issued through direct deposit on the 15th of each month for work completed the prior month.
If you are an Independent Contractor, you will be responsible for paying quarterly taxes. If you are a W-2 employee, Woven Legal will take care of all your payroll deductions and filing for you.
The length of time varies greatly depending on your skills and available contracts. Your Woven Legal recruiter can give you an idea during the interview process if your skills and experience match any open positions.
No. Those who qualify as Independent Contractors will not receive benefits nor will they be subject to withholding.
Woven Legal does the heavy lifting for you by vetting the clients we work with. Throughout your assignment, you are supported by a Relationship Manager who works as a liaison between you and the client. The RM’s role is to be an added resource to coach and advise both parties to succeed.
1) Companies are generally inundated with resumes from individuals, and it is likely that your resume won’t get the attention it needs. We hand deliver the top 2-3 resumes for each position and provide the Hiring Manager all the information they would need to select the right candidate for the job.
2) You always have the added resource of a Woven Legal Relationship Manager throughout the length of your assignment. The RM has years of experience coaching and advising clients and contractors on how to have a successful remote working relationship.
You can contact your Relationship Manager as soon as you are notified that your contract is ending. Our placement team will then start searching for your next great opportunity!
