2.2     Be solely responsible for Client’s business operations, products, services, and intellectual

2.3     Properly supervise, control, and safeguard Client’s premises, processes and systems; not allow

        on the premises with cash, checks, keys, credit cards, merchandise, confidential or trade secret
        information, negotiable instruments, or other valuables without prior written approval from
        Agency, or as strictly required by the job description of the position to which an Employee has

2.4     Ensure Employees are provided a safe work environment with appropriate information, training,

2.6     Exclude Employees from Client’s benefit plans, policies, and practices, and not make any offer or

3.      Guarantee

Should Client become dissatisfied with the performance of an Employee, Client may cancel that
Employee’s assignment by contacting Agency. If the assignment is terminated within the first
___________ (____) [insert number of days in both words and numerals] working days, then Client will not be
billed for the time the Employee was assigned to them and Agency will make reasonable efforts to
replace the Employee. Should Client keep an Employee on assignment for more than __________ (____)
[insert number of days in words and numerals] working days, the Employee’s performance shall be deemed
acceptable and Client shall pay the entire invoice for services rendered. If an Employee is removed from
an assignment by Client, Agency reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to refuse to assign a replacement
Employee or any additional Employees.

Agency does not warrant or guarantee that any Employee will produce any solutions to Client’s
workplace problems or needs.

4.      Payment Terms, Bill Rates, and Fees

4.1     Client will pay Agency for services rendered at rates agreed upon in “Exhibit A”. Client will also
        pay any additional costs or fees as set forth in this Agreement. Agency will invoice Client for
        such services on a ____________________ [insert invoicing period] basis. Payment by Client is due
        upon receipt of invoice. Invoices will include timesheets or other agreed upon systems for
        substantiating hours worked by Employees while with Client. Client’s signature or other agreed
        upon method of acknowledgement of work time submitted by Employees certifies that the
        documented hours are correct and Client will be billed for those hours. Should any portion of the
        invoice be in dispute, Client will still be held responsible for paying the undisputed portion of the

4.2     Employees are not exempt from laws which require premium pay for overtime, holiday work, or
        weekend work. Client will be charged special rates for premium work time only when an
        Employee’s work for Client, when assessed by itself, would legally require premium pay and
        Client has authorized, directed, or allowed such work during premium pay time. Client’s special
        billing rate for such premium hours will be the same multiple of regular billing rate as Agency is

        required to apply to the Employee’s regular pay rate. (e.g. if federal law requires 150% pay rate
        for work that exceeds 40 hours in one week, Client will be billed at 150% of the regular bill rate).

4.3     Should Client hire the Employee as its direct employee, as an independent contractor, or through
        any person or firm other than Agency, within _______________ (_____) days [insert number of days
        in both words and numerals] after any job in which the Employee was assigned to Client by
        Agency, Client must notify Agency and either (a) continue the Employees assignment from
        Agency for Employee’s next _______________ (____) [insert number of hours in both words and
        numerals] consecutive work hours for Client; or (b) pay Agency a fee in the amount of _________
        times the final billing rate for that Employee, or ___________________ dollars
        ($__________________), whichever is higher.

4.4     Client, in addition to paying the bill rates set forth in “Exhibit A”, will pay Agency the amount of
        all new or increased labor costs associated with Employees assigned to Client, as required by law,
        including but not limited to wages, benefits, payroll taxes, social program contributions, or
        charges linked to benefit levels, until new bill rates are agreed upon by both parties.

5.      Confidentiality

During the course of this Agreement, both parties may encounter and receive information that the other
party considers confidential and proprietary. Both parties agree to hold such information in strict
confidence and agree not to disclose such information to third parties or to use such information for any
purpose whatsoever, other than for performing the terms and conditions of this Agreement or as required
by law. No knowledge, possession, or use of Client’s confidential information shall be imputed to Agency
as a result of Employees’ access to such information.

6.      Cooperation

Both Agency and Client agree to cooperate fully and to provide assistance to each other in the
investigation and resolution of any claims, actions, or proceedings that may be brought by or that may
involve any Employees.

        company, subsidiaries, directors, officers, agents, representatives, and employees harmless from
        all claims, losses, and liabilities to the extent caused by Agency’s breach of this Agreement; its
