The Recruiter will provide the Client with Presented Candidates upon receipt of the following information from the Client for each request it makes of the Recruiter to perform its services (hereinafter referred to as the Clients Requirements).
- Completed Commerce Hero Profile
The Recruiter will use its resources, domain knowledge, experience, skill, and its best efforts to recruit, identify, screen, test, and check candidates for each Client Request in accordance with standard pre- employment practices for identifying qualified candidates for a position. Any special screening requirements such as drug testing, criminal background checks, credit checks, specialized testing, and industry specific checks are made at the request of the Client.
In consideration of the performance of the services, for each candidate which Recruiter successfully recruits to work with Client (the Presented Candidate), Client shall pay Recruiter 1% of such Presented Candidates first year guaranteed cash compensation per month for 12 months. Such payments will be made on a monthly basis on the day of the month that the Presented Candidate starts.
Should such Presented Candidate resign or be terminated for cause from Client, the Client will no longer be responsible for monthly payments after the date of termination. Also, the Client can request a pro-rated refund for the period of the month in which the Candidate did not work after resigning or being terminated for cause.
The parties hereby further agree that no compensation shall be paid in connection with the provision of services on behalf of Client unless a Presented Candidate has been presented to Client by Recruiter in writing and an authorized Client hiring manager has acknowledged in writing via email his or her interest in the presented candidate. In the event that two or more Recruiting Parties submit the same candidate, Client shall only pay the first Recruiter who receives such written acknowledgement of Client's desire to pursue such a candidate, as determined by the date stamp of the acknowledgement.
