Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Approval of Short-Term Incentive Plan

On September 20, 2005, the Compensation Committee (the "Compensation Committee") of the Board of Directors of RemedyTemp, Inc. (the "Company") adopted the Fiscal Year 2006 Short-Term Incentive Plan. The plan applies to the fiscal year beginning October 3, 2005. Full-time employee colleagues, including executive officers, are eligible to earn an annual cash bonus under the plan with respect to fiscal 2006. Each participant is assigned a target bonus reflected as a percentage of annual salary.

Performance under the incentive plan is gauged by economic profit, which is a measure of the Company’s annual operating performance and includes a charge to reflect the opportunity cost of capital employed. For fiscal 2006, the plan will use pretax income and capital employed as the principal operating measures of economic profit. The performance targets and payout ranges have been set relative to the Company’s short- and long-term forecasts, cost of capital and other metrics based on market capitalization and cash flows. The target performance, threshold performance (75% of target) and maximum performance (150% of target) were established based on expected changes in economic profit.

The target bonuses for each of the named executive officers of the Company under the plan are as follows: Greg Palmer's target bonus is 60%; Monty Houdeshell's target bonus is 60%; Gunnar Gooding's target bonus is 43.33%; and Janet Hawkins' target bonus is 50%. These target bonuses represent a percentage of annual base salary. The range of payouts under the plan is from 75% to 150% of the target bonus percentage.
