Section II – Terms and Conditions for Employers
These Terms and Conditions of Business are between Work Perks Group Limited trading as Networker Global (the “Company”) and the person, partnership, company or other organisation who contacts the Company with the intention of contracting or otherwise engaging an Applicant under the terms of this Agreement (the “Client”) and in respect of the provision of our Temporary Recruitment services.
“Applicant” means any person who has been introduced to the Client with a view to the Client engaging the Applicant.
“Engaged” means in any circumstances where an Applicant is employed, engaged as a worker, ‘taken on’, contracted or subcontracted with or to, or otherwise provides work or services to the Client, irrespective of whether and howsoever remunerated, and/or whether such services are provided directly or indirectly to the Client. “Engage” and “engagement” shall be construed accordingly under this definition.
“Introduced” means where the Company has, whether directly or indirectly provided information to the Client about the Applicant and which leads to any form of contact between an Applicant and the Client. An introduction shall take place irrespective of whether or not the Client previously knew, or knew of, the Applicant.
“Introduction” shall be construed accordingly under this definition.
“Temporary Recruitment” means where the Company sources an Applicant (including but not limited to any employee, worker, associate, contractor, or sub- contractor) who enters into an agreement to provide services for or to the Client for a fixed period of time.
2.1 These terms are deemed to be accepted by the Client in full by virtue of any form of continued instruction to the Company or in any contact whatsoever (including but not limited to any interview and/or an offer of employment) between the Client and any Applicant.
3. The Client’s Obligations
3.1 The Client shall:
a) inform the Company in writing of any engagement of an Applicant, including the terms of any engagement, immediately upon making any offer of engagement and at the latest by the first date upon which any Applicant carries out any work or otherwise provides services to the Client as part of that engagement.
b) pay any fee to the Company in accordance with clause 5 hereto.
c) within no later than 5 working days, provide to the Company such evidence as may be reasonably be requested to verify the remuneration payable to any Applicant under any engagement.
3.2 In order that the Company can conduct a full and professional search the Client agrees that any engagement of an Applicant following an Introduction by the Company for a current or future opening supersedes any prior contact with or knowledge of that Applicant by the Client, and therefore the fees set out below shall remain payable.
3.3 Information on Applicants, including names and contact details, is provided by the Company on a strictly confidential basis and should not be disclosed to a third party without prior written agreement of the Company. In the event that the Client acts in breach of this clause, and the Applicant is subsequently engaged by a third party within 12 months of the said breach by the Client then the Client shall indemnify the Company as to its losses and shall pay to the Company a fee calculated in accordance with clause 5 below. In the event that the Client breaches this clause, it shall notify the Company in writing within 10 working days of the date of the discovery of its breach.
3.4 The Client hereby undertakes that it shall not, save as provided for under this Agreement and for which a fee is payable to the Company, approach or engage any Applicant that is introduced to the Client by the Company within a period of 12 months beginning with the latter of either the introduction, or where any engagement takes place at the end of any period for which an Applicant is engaged with or by the Client.
4. The Company’s Obligations
4.1 The Company shall seek to introduce Applicants to the Client to fill roles that the Client places on the Company’s Temporary Recruitment service to assist in the recruitment for.
4.2 The Company provides no warranty or guarantee as to the skills, qualifications, experience, integrity or right to work in the UK of any Applicant and the Client shall remain responsible for taking up references, obtaining work permits, and satisfying any medical or legal requirements and as to the suitability of an Applicant before offering to engage them.
5.1 The Client agrees to pay the following fees upon engagement of any Applicant successful introduced and employed temporarily by the Company:
|Type of Recruitment||Fee Description||Fees|
|Temporary placement with funding provided by the company.||Temporary workers shall be engaged by reference to a fixed rate per day or per week or per month that the Applicant works for the Client. The Company will provide funding for the Contractor before receiving money from the Client.||8.5% of total amount for the period an Applicant was engaged by the Client.|
|Applicant engaged by the Client and without funding provided by the Company.||Temporary workers shall be engaged by reference to a fixed rate per day or per week or per month that the Applicant works for the Client. The Company will not be funding the Contractor.||A flat fee of £500 per month for the duration the Applicant is engaged by the Company.|
5.2 All fees shall be payable 30 days from the date of the invoice.
5.3 Any fees shall be subject to Value Added Tax and any other applicable taxes which may be in force from time to time.
5.4 In the event of late payment of any invoice the Company shall:
a) charge interest, accruing on a daily basis, on all outstanding fees at a rate of 5% above the Bank of England base rate per annum.
b) make a collection charge of the greater of £50 or any other rate as from time to time allowed by statute in relation to the late payment of a commercial debt.
c) Be entitled to withhold provision of any further services under any contract with the Client pending receipt of payment in full of those fees, together with any interest, charges any other sums which may be payable to the Company.
5.5 When an offer of employment has been made in writing by the Client and is subsequently withdrawn by the Client after a written acceptance by the Applicant and through no fault of the Applicant, the Client shall pay the full fee in accordance with clause 5 above.
6.1 Either party may terminate the agreement between the parties by providing to the other no less than 7 days’ notice, provided at any time, in writing. However, in the event that the Client terminates any instructions or agreement governed by these terms and conditions, then any expenses or disbursements have been incurred by the Company, whether or not agreed in advance, then the Client agrees that it shall be liable to pay to the Company a sum equal to the reasonably incurred said expenses and disbursements only.
7.1 The Company shall not be liable under any circumstances for any loss, damage, expense, delay or loss of profit or liability suffered or incurred by the Client arising from or in any way connected to the Company seeking an Applicant for the Client, the introduction of any Applicant by the Company, the engagement of any Applicant, or by any reason arising out of the lack of skills, qualifications, experience, integrity or suitability of the Applicant, by reason of the selection of the Applicant by the Client, or otherwise by reason of any act, omission, delay, default whether wilful, reckless, negligent or otherwise on the part of any Applicant.
7.2 The Client shall ensure that any work carried out by any Applicant is duly covered under any insurance policies that it may have in place.
7.3 The Client shall indemnify the Company against any and all claims, demands, actions, proceedings, and liabilities of any third party against the Company which arise out of or in connection with or have been caused by either the failure or refusal by the Client to engage any Applicant, or otherwise by any act, omission, delay or otherwise caused by the Applicant whilst engaged by the Client.
7.4 Without prejudice to the generality of the preceding clauses in this clause 7, the Company expressly excludes any liability for any loss or damage arising outside of its control including arising out of any act of God, fire, act of Government or State, war, civil unrest, insurrection, embargo, prevention from or hindrance in obtaining any raw materials, energy or other supplies, or labour disputes of whatever nature.
8. Agency Worker Regulations
8.1 The Parties agree that the Company is not providing services as an Employment Agency and therefore the Agency Worker Regulations 2010 do not apply to this Agreement. The Company will not employ, engage or otherwise contract with any Applicant and shall only introduce them to the Client, thereafter any contract shall be between the Applicant and the Client directly.
9. Rights of Third Parties
9.1 Only the Company and the Client may enforce the terms of this agreement. The Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act is therefore excluded.
