Our Fee Agreement
As part of our service to you, we are providing this confirmation of our agreement. As we have stated, our service fee is on a contingency basis. It would be payable only if a candidate enters into a service relationship with you or your affiliate within one year after our most recent communication relating to the candidate.
We provide you with this guarantee: If the service relationship between you and the candidate is terminated for any reason before the 30th calendar day after its start, we will replace the candidate, provided you give us written notice of the termination and reasons within 5 business days after termination and you paid our fee when due. This guarantee is not applicable if the service relationship is terminated because the position is eliminated or because of insufficient work for the candidate.
Since you will determine whether you are satisfied that the candidate has the requisite experience and qualifications for your needs, and that information provided by the candidate and other sources, directly or through us, is accurate, this guarantee is provided as your sole remedy if you are dissatisfied.
Our service fee, which will be invoiced when you and the candidate agree to enter into the service relationship, will be due on the 30th day of employment. If collection activities should become necessary, the fee would be adjusted to include any related expenses, such as reasonable attorney fees. Because we will be performing our service in the state of North Carolina, its laws would be applicable to our relationship and its courts would have jurisdiction over both of us.
The candidates will be referred to you in confidence and we ask that you not refer or identify them to any other company. Should you do so, and the other company enters into a service relationship with the candidate, both companies would be responsible for the payment of the service fee.
The following definitions are applicable to the Agreement: "Candidate" means a person referred to you by us, directly or indirectly. “Refer” means the disclosure by us of the identity of a candidate by any means, orally or in writing. “Service relationship” means your engagement of the services of the candidate in any capacity, including as an employee, independent contractor, consultant or other representative. "First year's base compensation" means the annual base salary at the time of candidate's hire.
If these terms do not reflect your understanding of our agreement, please call us immediately. We will rely on your acceptance of referrals from us as establishing that you have accepted these terms. We do not discriminate in the acceptance or referral of candidates on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, marital status, disability, or other protected characteristics.
