Recruiter FAQs Contractor FAQs

What is an Employer of Record (EOR) service?

An employer of record is an organization like FoxHire that serves as the employer for a contract worker for tax purposes, while your contractor performs work at a different client company. The employer of record handles all of the employee’s personnel and administrative functions (e.g., payroll, timesheets, benefits administration, W-2, etc.), while the client company provides guidance on the work scope that needs to be performed.

Is there a monthly or annual fee to use FoxHire’s services?

No, there is not a monthly or annual fee. Our fee is earned when a client company uses the services of your contract workers (i.e., our W-2 employee). That is, we only make money when you make money!

How much does FoxHire charge?

Recruiters and staffing professionals use our proprietary Ballpark Quote Tool in the Recruiter Portal to determine what you and we will earn on each of your contract placements. All fees are clearly spelled out, so that you will know exactly what every dollar in a contract placement pays for.

For example: Every contract placement is different and depends upon the type of work the contractor will be performing, the state and the environment where the work is being performed, and the miscellaneous Placement Add-Ons that you task us perform on your behalf.

How much money can I make placing contract workers?

The amount of money you can earn placing contract workers is virtually unlimited. The more contractors you place, the more money you will earn. Your profit per placement is dependent upon your ability to negotiate high bill rates to your clients. Here is an example:

If recruiter has ten (10) active contractors who are working 40 hours per week for 52 weeks at an average profit per hour of $12/hour, the annual profit for the recruiter will be $249,600.

  • $12/hour X 10 active contractors = $120/hour
  • $120/hour X 40 hours/week = $4,800
  • $4,800 X 52 weeks = $249,600 of annual recruiter income

How will FoxHire pay me?

We pay recruiters and staffing firms via weekly direct deposit to their bank accounts. Your earnings will simply “show up” in your bank account within a week of your clients paying their invoices. And of course, a detailed breakdown of your earnings are clearly displayed to you in the Recruiter Portal.

Are there extra fees for the Client?

The Client only pays for the actual hours the FoxHire Contractor works, so they’ll never over pay.

What is the minimum length for a contract placement through FoxHire?

The minimum length assignment that we accept is six weeks.

Is there an upfront "setup charge" associated with a new placement?

Yes. We charge a one time setup fee starting at $100 to help offset some of our internal costs associated with negotiating contracts and setting up employment paperwork for the contractor.

As the recruiter, will my company’s name be on the invoice to the client?

Yes, your name will be on the invoice, because we want your client to know that you are actively involved.

What are the most common Placement Add-Ons that FoxHire offers?

After ~3 decades of placing ~20,000 contract employees across the USA, we know many contract placements come with unique circumstances that must happen in order to “close the deal.” Here are some of the more common Add-Ons that we regularly handle:

Common Add-Ons:
  • Custom Background Checks
  • Expense reimbursements (e.g., mileage, meals, travel, hotel, etc.)
  • Paid Leave (i.e., adhering to government required sick time, paid time off, PTO)
  • Review and redlining of non-FoxHire contracts (i.e., Client’s own contract)
  • Custom invoicing (e.g., Invoice a client for unique conversion fee scenarios)
  • Overnight delivery of documents (e.g., onboarding paperwork, contracts, etc.)
  • Adding your client’s custom “forms” into our employee onboarding process
Healthcare Add-Ons:
  • Custom Background Checks
  • Drug Screening
  • License Verification
  • Immunization Verification (Hepatitis B, TB, etc.)
  • Pathologies
  • Certifications (e.g., CPR Training)
  • HIPAA Agreement
  • OIG/HHS (Medicare Fraud) Search
  • System for Award Management (SAM)
  • Bloodborne Pathogen Training and Testing
  • Custom FBI fingerprinting (e.g., contact with children)
  • etc.

Does FoxHire charge extra for Placement Add-Ons?

We are adamant about keeping our costs low, so we can allow you to have the highest profit margin possible. To do so, we have assigned costs to some of the Add-On tasks that we offer. If any extra costs are required for your placement, they will be identified in our Ballpark Quote Tool.

Is FoxHire a Staffing Firm?

Although we are similar to a staffing firm in many ways, we do not perform the recruiting function. That’s your recruiter’s job (e.g., your 3rd party recruiter, or your own in-house recruiter). Once the contract candidate is supplied, we become the contractor’s legal employer of record and put them on our payroll as our W-2 employee.

Is FoxHire a Professional Employer Organization (PEO)?

Although there are many similarities, FoxHire is not a PEO. Sure, we provide nearly all of the same W-2 employer functions, but unlike a PEO we have no aspirations of employing your entire staff. We simply become the W-2 employer of record for those contract workers you wish to hire on a short-term basis (e.g., 3, 6, 9, 12 months, etc).

Is FoxHire just a website, or are there experienced humans behind the scenes to answer my detailed questions?

We have a very experienced team of Contract Administrators with decades of experience. If you have a detailed question, just call us at 888-534-9417. If you don’t see something on our website or in your Portal, just ask and we will do our best to make your life easy!
