in reply to -s testing for empty file; works on local, but not on remote

If it works locally, but not remotely, and you are sure the files and directories are indeed there, then it's most likely a permissions issue - ie. the remote user does not have the correct permissions to read that file or directory. This is simple to test; as the user you are running the script, run from a terminal:

$ ls -l /home/vcg/Documents/Trial/temp

    Thanks for the advice, however, I don't think that is the case since I'm creating the temp file in the program. I'm going to look into it just to be sure.
