I was told that I would be working with [XYZ Company], not Grapevine by Year Zero Corporation, why does my contract say “Grapevine by Year Zero Corporation” as my employer?
The company that you will be working for is [XYZ Company] for the role that you originally got the offer for, despite this not being specified in the contract. This is because when you applied to Grapevine, you agreed to be employed by Grapevine. You will still be working at [XYZ Company], but since you are hired through Grapevine, your contract says Grapevine, instead of the company you will be working for.
I got hired by [XYZ Company] through Grapevine, so who is my employer and whose payroll am I on? How often will I be paid?
Is compensation negotiable?
Are there any background materials I should be familiar with before my term starts?
