We will act as a liaison between you and your new company to make sure the employment is successful.

For a Contract Position, once hired, you’ll be placed on our payroll, where we’ll pay you weekly through mail, pick-up or direct deposit system, without fail. We also carry worker’s compensation insurance for all our candidates, as well as general liability insurance, so you and LPC Personnel, Inc. are covered.
