Your firm (the “Client”) will receive an invoice for the services of our employee whose name appears on the reverse as EMPLOYEE (the “Assigned Employee”). Our invoices reflect billing for services rendered by and payroll already paid to the Assigned Employee. Our payment terms are “Net When Rendered”.
The Client is responsible for the direct and indirect supervision, direction and control of the Assigned Employee during the performance of any work or services under this Service Agreement. The Assigned Employee is an employee of Alternacare and shall not be deemed to be the employee of the Client. Alternacare warrants that it assumes total responsibility to deduct, remit and pay all applicable payroll related withholdings, taxes and levies.
The Client agrees to comply with all applicable laws, acts, ordinances and regulations whatsoever relating to worksite health and safety, and agrees to provide to the Assigned Employee a safe and healthful workplace. The Client agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Alternacare for claims, damages or penalties arising out of any violation of any law, act, ordinance or regulation whatsoever respecting workplaces owned, leased or supervised by the Client and to which the Assigned Employee is assigned.
A timesheet is presented to the Client for verification and signature at the end of each week. The Client’s signature thereon indicates acknowledgement and acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Service Agreement. Our compensation to the Assigned Employee is on a weekly basis, and the Client will be billed weekly for all hours worked by the Assigned Employee. Alternacare’s minimum charge is 3 hours per day.
