Frequently Asked Questions

knowledge at your fingertips


Your consultant will tell you how to register the hours you have worked. This should be done electronically. If you use an online time registration system, your consultant will send you instructions by e-mail. If you use manual timesheets, your consultant will provide you with blank timesheets. Depending on the client’s wishes, you must file your timesheets every week or every month. Payment will be made on a monthly basis. Please note: the timesheets must be signed off by your supervisor. We will not process timesheets that have not been signed off. Please send the signed-off timesheets to and your consultant.

You can find your payment terms in the online portal. Once you are logged in you will find these terms at the top right. As soon as we receive your timesheet, your term of payment will start. If and when the paydate falls on a Saturday or Sunday, payment will be made on the Friday before the weekend. As soon as we have generated your payslip and it has been uploaded to your portal, you will receive a confirmation e-mail that also states when to expect payment. If you prefer earlier payment, we have a pre-financing option. Ask your accountmanager for more information.


You can find this information in the personnel handbook. Please send an e-mail on your first day of sickness, before 10:00 am, to and to your contacts and / or manager at the end client. Please stay in touch with us during your sickness. After a few days the ARBO [working conditions service] will contact you to inquire how you are doing. Please e-mail us at on the first day that you return to work after your sickness.

You should ALWAYS consult with Yellowstone before leaving. The occupational physician will advise on whether it is wise for you to travel or not. You cannot leave without the physician’s advice and without consulting Yellowstone.

If we believe that you should see the occupational physician, we will inform the working conditions service and they will schedule an appointment with you. You could always go and see the physician at your own initiative, but only after you discuss it with us first.

You should always list your sick days on your time sheet. Please do this in consultation with the end client as there are different time registration systems of which Yellowstone has no knowledge and to which Yellowstone has no access.

Waiting days are the first or first two days of your sickness. During these days you don’t get paid. Waiting days start as soon as you call in sick with Yellowstone. This means that if you call in sick late, waiting days will also start late.

Account Managers / Contracts

You can download your paystubs, contracts, payment terms, personnel handbook etcetera from our online portal. Via you can access all these data.
As soon as you have received a contract from us, you can request your employee number via the website above.
An e-mail will be send to the e-mail address which we do have in our file.
This e-mail contains your employee number and a manual in which the procedure for logging on to our Online Portal will be explained. These instructions can also be viewed here (PDF, 176 kB).

The rate of payment is not a gross rate but a disposable income/ all-inclusive rate. This covers all costs, including employer’s costs such as social security contributions, pension, your reservations and general support services.
It is common practice that when you get offered a “regular” contract with an employer, you negotiate a standard gross salary. On top of this gross salary, the employer is required to pay additional employers’ costs, like social security contributions. An example: If you agree on a salary of EUR 3000 gross, the employer must pay an additional EUR 1000 in social security contributions / insurance / pension contributions, et cetera. This means that if you earn EUR 3000 gross, you cost the employer EUR 4000.
But once again, the rate we pay you is an all-inclusive rate.This means that in addition to the ‘normal’ employee costs, the rate includes the mandatory employer costs. It is like you are working as a self-employed individual, paying your own costs. Every month you will receive an open calculation and specification of all the costs involved (summary statement). Because you will be paid by the hour, your payslip will differ per month, depending on the number of hours you have worked.

See also attached PDF: Loonstrook (explanation).

We make every effort to process signed-off hours but payslips will always be available in our online portal before payment. We will notify you by e-mail as soon as the payslip is available in the portal.

You will find the amountyou have to pay for general support services in your contract/personnel handbook/introduction e-mail under the header: kostenpersoneelsgids / General support services YI.

On an annual basis you are entitled to 25 days (if working fulltime). At the bottom of your monthly payslip you will find the most recent gross value of the days’ leave accrued. You will find the equivalent in hours on/at your monthly summary.

As a rule, we pay your holiday pay (in the amount of 8,33%) on a monthly basis. You will therefore not receive a separate payout in May or June.

You will receive your annual statement at the beginning of March.
An example: The annual statement for 2019 will be available at the beginning of March 2020. It will be available in your online portal in the file: Jaaropgaven.

You should always list your sick days on your time sheet. Please do this in consultation with the end client as there are different time registration systems of which Yellowstone has no knowledge and to which Yellowstone has no access.
