I'm on payroll but i never signed any papers

I work for a company through a staffing agency. I have just been made aware that I am no longer paid through my agency as I am a permanent worker at my company now an I'm on their payroll. But I never agreed to come on permanent or sign any paperwork. Is this illegal? What are my options?

I don't know if it's illegal but it's an easy way for the employer to screw you over since there's no legal paperwork to protect your rights. I would go to my boss and ask if you should do some paperwork.

Exactly! I was never given an oppurtunity to negotiate any terms. I was just given the papers to sign today and told it was effective Monday the 8th. I never agreed upon a pay rate. I have no idea what my vacation allowance is. I'm just handed papers and expected to sign blindly to thier terms and conditions.

It could a clause in your "enrollment" with the staffing agency that if the client wants to keep you on, then they get your contract. It is unusual that they didn't ask you first.

It can be termed as illegal since you have not signed any documents and the company can at some point turn tables. You need to make sure that the right procedure is followed from the relevant persons.

It is NOT legal.
There is NO WAY one company can "sell" your employment to another company without your approval and knowledge.

That's what I was thinking. I was never given a chance to negotiate any terms or to even say if I wanted to be hired on permanent.
