Temporary assignments dependent on client need. The completion of Manpowers application process shall constitute a conditional offer of employment subject to an acceptable background check and/or a drug screen if required by a client, my availability, and the availability of client assignments calling for the skills and qualifications which I possess. I understand that completion of the application process does not guarantee that an assignment will be offered to me and that the availability of an assignment through Manpower is subject to client needs.
Availability policy. This policy only applies after you have been on at least one assignment with Manpower. To maintain employment status with Manpower, you must keep us informed as to your availability. When you complete an assignment, notify Manpower by phone within 48 hours (exceptions noted below), and then every week until you are placed on a new assignment, to inform us of your availability status. If you do not contact us, then we will consider you unavailable for work and to have voluntarily resigned from employment.

Associates who work in MICHIGAN must contact Manpower within 7 working days after assignment completion. Associates who work in MINNESOTA must contact Manpower within 5 working days after assignment completion.)
Confidentiality. I have been advised and agree that all information that I have access to while on assignment through Manpower is considered the property of Manpowers client, whether or not such information is actually considered a trade secret under applicable law. I hereby agree to keep all client information confidential, and I will not disclose any information to any person except those persons expressly authorized by Manpower or Manpowers client. I also agree to return all information and property to Manpower or its client at the conclusion of my assignment or upon request.
Intellectual Property. Any and all discoveries,
inventions (including but not limited to improvements or modifications) or

not patentable, copyrightable or otherwise subject to registration or protection
which are made or conceived by you, solely or jointly with others, are works
made for hire and shall be the property of Manpower or its designee. You must
agree to provide Manpower or its designee with a complete written disclosure of
each invention, discovery, literary or other work and further agree to sign
necessary documents and give Manpower or its designee all other reasonable
assistance necessary to perfect and maintain whatever rights Manpower or its
designee deem appropriate, without charge to Manpower or its designee but
without expense to yourself.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, this section shall not apply to an invention for which no equipment, supplies, facility or trade secret information of the Client was used and which was developed entirely on my own time, unless (A) the invention relates to (I) to the business of Manpower or its client or (II) to Manpowers or its clients actual or demonstratably anticipated research or development or (B) the invention results from any work performed by me for the Client.
Waiver of Manpower client benefits. In consideration of a
temporary assignment with a Manpower client, I agree that I am solely an
associate of Manpower for any benefits plan purposes and that I am eligible only
for such benefits as Manpower may offer to its associates. I further acknowledge
and agree that I am not entitled to benefits under any plans or programs offered
by a Manpower client (or its parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, or successors),
regardless of the length of my assignment with a Manpower client, and regardless
of whether I am held to be a common-law employee of a client for any purpose.
THEREFORE, WITH FULL KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING, I HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE ANY
CLAIM OR RIGHT THAT I MAY HAVE NOW OR IN THE FUTURE, TO ANY SUCH BENEFIT,
INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, 401(K) AND OTHER SAVINGS PLANS, STOCK PURCHASE,
PENSION, DEFERRED COMPENSATION, TRAVEL REIMBURSEMENT, SEVERANCE, FLEXIBLE

HEREBY WAIVE MY RIGHTS TO RECEIVE ANY SUCH BENEFITS. THIS WAIVER DOES NOT APPLY
TO ANY BENEFITS PREVIOUSLY ACCRUED UNDER THE CLIENTS BENEFITS PLANS.
