The Client is responsible for obtaining any medical certificates, work permits or other approvals necessary for the Candidate prior to the commencement of employment.
For live‐in positions, the Client accepts and understands its obligations adequately to insure with a company of good repute the Candidate’s property, contents and any other items of value to the Candidate, and shall also ensure that such insurance remains in full force and effect for the duration of the Candidate’s employment.
OBLIGATIONS OF THE AGENCY
The Agency confirms that as a member of The Association of Nanny Agencies (ANA) it will comply with the ANA's Code of Standards of Best Practice. It is standard procedure that we request our Candidates to provide written references, a CRB Disclosure (police check), an up-to-date CV, proof of ID and proof of qualifications. If we have not been able to check these yet, we will inform you. If the Candidates cannot provide any of these documents or are in the process of obtaining one we will inform you before you agree to interview them. If you request a Candidate with certain skills/documents (such as first aid training, driving licence, childcare diploma, etc.) but she is in the process of obtaining these we will inform you. The Agency do not directly employ the Candidate and are not able to insist upon CRB checks. If a candidate who does not have an up to date CRB and/or are in the process of obtaining one, then the agency will inform the Client of the CRB status of the Candidate before you agree to interview them.
The Agency will take all reasonable steps to introduce Candidates who are of sound character, honest and reliable but cannot be held responsible for the conduct of a Candidate.
The Agency endeavours to ensure the suitability of the Candidate based on the information the Client has provided but the Agency does not guarantee the suitability of any Candidate introduced to the Client and makes no warranty or representation expressed or implied in respect of any Candidate. The final decision to employ a candidate is the sole responsibility of the Client. The Client shall therefore satisfy themselves as to the suitability of the Candidate and the Client shall take up any references provided by the Candidate and/or the Agency before employing a Candidate. The Agency does not accept any liability for any inconvenience, damage or loss arising whether caused directly or indirectly from any act or omission of a Candidate introduced to the Client by the Agency. The Agency offers no warranty for a Candidates character, honesty, reliability, suitability or capacity.
The Agency can provide for the Client and the Candidate a draft standard Contract of Employment but makes no representations whatsoever in relation to that document and cannot provide any legal advice to either party as to its content or the terms of employment between the Client and the Candidate or in fact any terms and conditions therein.
The Agency does not operate a payroll system but can refer the Client to a nanny payroll tax specialist if requested.
There is no VAT to pay on any Agency Fees (Fulham Nannies is a non-VAT registered entity below the VAT registration threshold for the tax year 2012/2013).
The Client agrees to pay all Agency Fees within 14 days of the date of the invoice submitted by the Agency.
The full Agency Fees will become payable when a Candidate introduced by the Agency is offered and accepts employment with the Client, either by verbal or written agreement, and not at the commencement of employment.
The Agency Fees charged relate to one engagement only. Where a Candidate is engaged on a temporary basis and the Candidate’s employment is extended either beyond the original period of Engagement or the Client subsequently re-engages the Candidate in any capacity within 12 months from the date of the initial Introduction, the Client undertakes to inform the Agency within 7 days and pay the relevant Introduction fee again in accordance with the Agency Fee Structure for a new Placement. The Agency will then raise an invoice for the appropriate Introduction fee as set out in these Terms and Conditions less any fees already paid in respect of the original Engagement.
