Microsoft and Volt Relationship

Most of the press that Volt receives is related to its close relationship with Microsoft. Most notably, in 2001/2002 Microsoft had significant issues regarding the employment of "permatemps". [ITWorld News Report, http://www.itworld.com/Career/1731/IW010108calist/] Their practice of hiring temporary employees through 3rd party agencies and then failing to convert them to Full Time Employees within a reasonable amount of time resulted in a class-action lawsuit being filed against Microsoft and a subsequent settlement. [Official Vizcaino v. Microsoft Web Page, http://www.ms-permatemp.com/] As the primary provider of temporary workforce solutions for Microsoft, Volt picked up the majority of the attention related to this event. This lawsuit has had drastic implications for the IT industry and the way that contract employees are hired. [Volt Blog, http://www.voltinsider.com] [Orange Badges, http://www.orangebadges.com/]
