STAFFING FIRM’s Duties and Responsibilities

1. STAFFING FIRM will
a. Recruit, screen, interview, and assign its employees (“Assigned Employees”) to perform the type of work described on the CLIENT’S Contract and per the CLIENT’S Provided Job Description.
b. Pay Assigned Employees’ wages and provide them with the benefits that STAFFING FIRM offers to them;

CLIENT’s Duties and Responsibilities

2. CLIENT will
a. Properly supervise Assigned Employees performing its work and be responsible for its business operations, products, services, and intellectual property;
b. Properly supervise, control, and safeguard its premises, processes, or systems, and not permit Assigned Employees to operate any vehicle or mobile equipment, or entrust them with unattended premises, cash, checks, keys, credit cards, merchandise, confidential or trade secret information, negotiable instruments, or other valuables without STAFFING FIRM’s
express prior written approval or as strictly required by the job description provided to STAFFING FIRM;
c. While Employee is on location, CLIENT will Provide Assigned Employees with a safe work site and provide appropriate information, training, and safety equipment with respect to any hazardous substances or conditions to which they may be exposed at the work site;

e. Exclude Assigned Employees from CLIENT’s benefit plans, policies, and practices, and not make any offer or promise relating to Assigned Employees’ compensation or benefits; and 

F. Not solicit Assigned Employee and/or make any attempt to persuaded Assigned Employee to become an independent contractor of Client.

Payment Terms, Bill Rates, and Fees

3. CLIENT will pay STAFFING FIRM for its performance at the rates set forth on Signed Contract and will also pay any additional costs or fees set forth in this Agreement. STAFFING FIRM will invoice CLIENT for services provided under this Agreement on a monthly basis. Payment is automatically billed to the CLIENT’S Credit Card every month.

General Terms and Conditions

4. Assigned Employees are not classified as “Empleados de Confianza” which is the equivalent to nonexempt in the United States of America and they will require premium pay (either double time or triple time), for overtime, holiday work, or weekend work. STAFFING FIRM will charge CLIENT special rates for premium work time only when an Assigned Employee’s work on assignment to CLIENT, viewed by itself, would legally require premium pay and CLIENT has authorized, directed, or allowed the Assigned Employee to work such premium work time. CLIENT’s special billing rate for premium hours will be the same multiple of the regular billing rate as STAFFING FIRM is required to apply to the Assigned Employee’s regular pay rate. (For example, when federal law requires 150% of pay for work exceeding 40 hours in a week, CLIENT will be billed at 150% of the regular bill rate.)
5. If CLIENT uses or desires to use the services of any Assigned Employee as its direct employee (i.e. hires said Assigned Employee), or as an independent contractor, or through any person or firm other than STAFFING FIRM at any time said Assigned Employee works for Staffing Firm (and for a period of one year after Assigned Employee no longer works for Staffing Firm), CLIENT must immediately notify STAFFING Firm in writing that it desires to hire or wants to use the services of said Assigned Employee.  In such an event, in order for Client to avoid paying a fee for said solicitation of said Assigned Employee, Client must wither: (a) continue the Assigned Employee’s assignment from STAFFING FIRM for his or her next 1000 consecutive work hours for CLIENT; or (b) pay STAFFING FIRM a fee in the amount of 12 times the highest six-month average (for the most recent year) of the monthly billing rate for that Assigned Employee, or $25,000.00, whichever is higher. ( For example, if said Assigned Employee’s highest average monthly billing for a six month period was $3,000 per month, Client would pay Staffing Firm the sum of $36,000.)
6. In addition to the bill rates specified in the Signed Contract of this Agreement, CLIENT will pay STAFFING FIRM the amount of all new or increased labor costs associated with a change is the exchange rate between the Mexican Peso and the US dollar. To date, pay rates are based on a U.S Dollar to Mexican Peso ratio of $18.90 Mexican Pesos to $1 U.S. Dollar. A 10% exchange rate fee may be charged for every 10% change in the Mexican Peso to US Dollar ratio. For example, if the ration changes to $16.02 to $1 U.S. Dollar, then Website In 5 Days LLC may enforce a 10% exchange rate fee to account for this change. 

Confidential Information

7. Both parties may receive information that is proprietary to or confidential to the other party or its affiliated companies and their clients. Both parties agree to hold such information in strict confidence and not to disclose such information to third parties or to use such information for any purpose whatsoever other than performing under this Agreement or as required by law. No knowledge, possession, or use of CLIENT’s confidential information will be imputed to STAFFING FIRM as a result of Assigned Employees’ access to such information.

10.

11. As a condition precedent to indemnification, Staffing Firm will inform Client within 3 business days after it receives notice of any claim, loss, liability, or demand for which it seeks indemnification from the other party; and the party seeking indemnification will cooperate in the investigation and defense of any such matter.
13. The provisions in paragraphs 9 through 13 of this Agreement constitute the complete agreement between the parties with respect to indemnification, and each party waives its right to assert any common-law indemnification or contribution claim against the other party.
