Frequently Asked Questions

Employer

How much does it cost to use a gigRonin shift worker?

Less than you think! Especially considering that the gigRonin fee includes all applicable federal/state/local taxes, workers comp, compulsory health insurance and related measurements, mandatory sick leave (if applicable) and all other compliance burdens. It’s definitely a much lower cost option compared to having an employee work overtime, making the wrong hire or turning down a revenue opportunity.

Does using gigRonin reduce my compliance obligations?

gigRonin relieves almost all of the administrative burdens faced by employers. Your job is to direct the work, and provide an environment that is safe and free from harassment and discrimination. Our job is to handle compliance and workforce management.

Can gig Ronin help me reduce the cost of my current workforce by load-balancing a contingent workforce?

How far in advance do I need to broadcast an open shift?

With gigRonin, you can broadcast a shift that is unexpectedly open for an instant response. Our platform provides an immediate and real-time remedy for no-shows or call-offs.

What happens if a worker goes into overtime?

Both the worker and the worksite receive real time text notification as overtime and meal/break periods are approached. If a worker applies for a shift that will put him into overtime, notification will be provided to the worksite before the shift is confirmed allowing you to accept the premium pay or simply find a different worker.
