If a maternity nurse is subsequently employed as a nanny, mothers help or housekeeper then a further fee shall be payable in accordance with the Agency’s Fee Structure for a new Placement within 14 days.
If the Client employs a Candidate but does not inform the Agency within 7 days, the fee payable will be subject to a 50% surcharge.
If a Candidate is solicited to work for the Client with the intention of bypassing the Agency’s Fees then the Client will be invoiced the fee then chargeable by the Agency for the relevant Placement.
If a Candidate is engaged on a trial basis for a period of up to a maximum of 1 day and the Placement does not become permanent then the Agency will not charge a fee.
If a Candidate is engaged on a trial basis for a period of more than 1 day and the Placement does not become permanent then the fee chargeable will be calculated on the basis of a temporary Placement. If the Placement does become permanent then the balance of the fee for a permanent Placement is payable immediately upon the rendering of the Agency’s invoice less any fees already paid in respect of the trial Placement.
All information provided by the Agency including personal details of Candidates should be treated as strictly confidential and must not be passed either directly or indirectly to other potential Clients or Candidates. The disclosure by the Client to a third party of any details regarding a Candidate from the Agency which results in the subsequent Engagement of that Candidate by that third party within 12 months of the initial Client Introduction will render the Client liable for full payment of the Agency Fee relevent to the exact period of Engagement..
The Client acknowledges and understands that the Agency Fees do not include any part of the Candidate’s salary.
The fee payable to the Agency by the Client for an Introduction resulting in an Engagement is calculated in accordance with the Agency’s Fee Structure.
