Frequently Asked Questions

It is our focus and responsibility to place clients in safe and approved work experiences.  There are certain industries or jobs that we have determined to be prohibited due to safety, risk assessment and/or insurance liability reasons.

This list is not all-inclusive, and Manpower reserves the right to decline a work experience based on our assessment. Please note that all work experiences must be approved prior to the client starting.

You can view the process to complete section 2 of the I9 form by clicking here.

All employers must verify identity and employment eligibility for all employees. This verification is completed through the federal I-9 document.

As the Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor you are authorized to verify identity for your clients but must follow all federal guidelines including only using approved forms of documentation.

For your convenience we have provided a link below to a list of all acceptable documents. If it is not on this list, it will not be allowed to be used as a form of identity verification.

Important Note: If you (or someone else) are preparing this form for your client, you must fill out the preparer section of the I9. 

On January 1, 2023, the state-wide minimum hourly wage increased to $13.80/hr and the minimum weekly salary will increase to $796.17/wk.

There are two exceptions: city of Portland and city of Rockland will each increase their minimum wage to $14.00.

It is the responsibility of the associate to report their time to Manpower each week that they work. This process is completed through PeopleNet. Below you will find instructions on how to log your time, as well as a link to the PeopleNet platform.

To ensure your client gets paid on time, it is important that the Voc Rehab Counselor that is designated to approve time logs into PeopleNet every week to do so.

Direct Deposit pay statements are emailed as a pdf attachment each pay period from to the client’s email address we have on file. The attachment is password-protected pdf to ensure that personal information is secure.  The password will always be the last four digits of the client social security number.

If there is a 2-year gap in between work experiences a new packet is required. If there is less than a 2-year gap in service you still must provide updated contact, banking, tax information and any other individual forms that have been updated since the last time. A Manpower Recruiter will communicate requirements before approving a work experience.
