(a) you undertake your work professionally, promptly, efficiently and in good faith using your own skill and expertise and with due care and to the best standards expected of you during the Work Time until the objectives of the work are completed and the Assignment is ended
(b) the standard set out in 4.0(a) requires that you comply with all applicable health and safety laws and regulations and, to the extent applicable, any statutory requirements relating to the type of work required for the provision of the Work Services
(c) as part of your function under the preceding clause, it is your responsibility to ensure your own safety and assess any risks or hazards that may affect your safety and to familiarise yourself with the working conditions and operating requirements at the Contract Site; this responsibility continues to apply even though the Client may provide you with its own internal policies, rules and regulations relating to safety or for the operation of equipment or machinery or relevant to working conditions, which you should comply with only to the extent that they relate to the proper performance by you of your work
(d) during the Work Time
(i) you follow the proper directions and instructions of the Client as to your work and allow the Client to exercise day to day control
(ii) you will allow the Client to supervise your work to the extent properly required to enable the Client to progress its work requirements

(g) you will not engage in work for any third party capable of being in conflict with the best interests of us or the Client.
Section 5 – acknowledgements
5.0 We may from time to time make enquiries and pass on comments and suggestions as between you, the Client and ourselves with the objective of ensuring the Assignment is being performed on a satisfactory basis for all concerned; we recommend that you raise with us any issues (including failure by the Client to sign a timesheet and treatment of you by others during the Assignment that you may find unacceptable) or questions as to instructions from the Client at the earliest time so that we can make the necessary enquiries and advise as we deem appropriate; we shall do our best to facilitate resolution at all times but if you wish to end the work we shall negotiate termination with the Client.
5.1 You acknowledge that the nature of temporary work is that its continuation is dependent upon the willingness of both you and the Client at any time; accordingly we may notify you and terminate an Assignment if the Client should advise us at any time, and by any means, that it no longer requires us to supply your services as a temporary agency worker, or if we should conclude that the Client may not meet its obligations to us, or if, in our opinion (which need not be reasonable) the work you are asked to undertake is not suitable for you.
5.2 You also acknowledge that, under the arrangements for an Assignment, the Client will be under no obligation to provide you, either directly or through us, with any advance notice of an end to an Assignment, or provide you with any reason for such termination, although it may choose to discuss any reason with you as part of its own policy concerning the handling of temporary personnel; if the Client asks you to leave, it is in your interests to inform us straightaway so that we can verify instructions from the Client to us and ascertain whether there is any prospect of the continuation of the Assignment; the Client has no right to terminate the Assignment or obligation to give you any notice; if you are informed of any intention to terminate you must immediately communicate this to us; only when we have confirmed to you that the Assignment is at an end is the Assignment terminated, as your contractual relationship concerning continuation of the Assignment is with us and not the Client; if the Assignment specifies that you are entitled to advance notice, we shall give you such notice ourselves.
5.3 Following your acknowledgments above, you agree that you are not obliged by contract, either express or implied, to perform your work in any way other than in good faith and as you reasonably consider appropriate; however if you do not provide your services in accordance with the Client’s expectations the Client may ask us to terminate an Assignment and you acknowledge that if you have caused any damage to us or the Client through negligence or otherwise you may be liable for any loss claimed; nothing in this clause shall affect your separate obligations to us specified in this agreement.
Section 6 – what we ask of you
6.0 To enable us to provide a continuing and valuable service to you, and to a Client where appropriate, we need information from you at various stages, and you acknowledge that we may not be able to maintain the continuation of any work if you do not provide such information; accordingly, although you are not under any obligation to us, we ask that you let us know
(a) immediately if you do not consider the work suitable for you, in which event we will, if possible, discuss the matter with you and the Client
(b) if you have any reason to believe that the Client will not sign any timesheet in respect of your work, with any reasons for your belief
(c) immediately if you are likely to be absent from work for any reason during an Assignment, and if you are proposing to take a holiday, let us know in advance by completing our standard leave notification form or complying with our leave booking procedure as far in advance as is possible
(d) if you no longer wish to continue working under an Assignment, or if you are unlikely to be available for work for any period.
Section 7 – contract for services
7.0 Throughout an Assignment Term you agree, as a temporary agency worker engaged by us for the purpose of supplying your services to the Client, to undertake the Work Services.
7.1 This contract is a contract for services and for the avoidance of doubt we are not your employer nor are you our employee under any contract of employment or an employee of the Client; no contract of employment is expressed or implied by reason of this agreement or any terms ancillary to this agreement and any implied duty on the part of us as if we were your employer, or on your part as if you were our employee is excluded; specifically you do not have our authority to submit to any terms requested by a Client other than such that are stated as Special Terms ancillary to an Assignment, but the performance by you of any Special Terms is in accordance with the recognitions expressed herein and not pursuant to any specific obligation to us or the Client.
7.2 You agree specifically that you will not allege, seek to maintain or hold yourself out to any party that you are an employee of ours or a Client, or that you are authorised by us to agree to any terms on our behalf at any time.
7.3 You further agree that
(a) you will not submit to the control of a Client to the extent that you consider that you have a direct contractual relationship with that Client
(b) you are not under our control
(c) you will at the end of each Assignment or immediately on request return to the Client any materials, documents or equipment of the Client which you have, or have had in your possession
(d) you will maintain insurance to the level required in a Proposal, if any, and provide us with evidence of such insurance upon request.
Section 8 – your warranties
8.0 You warrant and undertake, and this warranty and undertaking is renewed on acceptance of each Proposal, that
(a) an adequate description of the services required to enable you to provide the Work Services has been given to you before the Assignment and, if you have been provided with a specification of work by the Client, you have the skill and expertise to meet such specification
(b) you have not been convicted of any criminal offence (other than road traffic offences) relevant to our decision to hire you to provide the services or the Client’s decision to allow you to access its site or systems, information or property for the purposes of supplying the services, nor is any charge pending for such an offence
(c) you are authorised to provide work services in the United Kingdom and have any relevant visa or entry clearance documentation
(d) you recognise that this agreement is a commercial contract for services and that there is no obligation upon us to provide any work to you, nor are you obliged to undertake any work other than under an Assignment
(e) we have no obligation to provide you with information or any service other than as specifically, and to the extent, stated in this agreement or required by statute
(f) in locating temporary work for you, and in agreeing to assist you as set out herein, we are providing you with a valuable service to enable you to obtain and continue with temporary work and you are not our employee
(g) you will notify us immediately should the information or warranties provided in accordance with clauses 8.0(b) or (c) no longer be accurate.
Section 9 – what you must not do
9.0 You agree that the arrangements recorded in this agreement between you and us reflect commercial terms, and that we have arrangements in place with each Client which entitle us to fees, and/or oblige us to protect the interests of the Client; accordingly, and in consideration of our services to you, you agree you will not
(a) at any time divulge to any party or use for your own benefit any information capable of being confidential relating to the affairs, business or business method of us or the Client, or information received from us or the Client, except that which is in the public domain or is trivial or obvious or authorised to be released or required by Court Order to be disclosed
(b) at any time discuss with the Client either your rates of pay, or any other terms of your engagement with us, other than strictly as required for the proper objectives of the Work Services
(c) solicit or otherwise seek to induce any other person engaged by us or a Client to terminate his or her arrangement with us or the Client and/or enter into an arrangement with you or any person with whom you are dealing for the purposes of directly or indirectly providing work services to the Client
(d) act in conflict with the best interests of a Client or cause any damage or loss to a Client
(e) take any holiday during the first 21 days of commencement of an Assignment.
9.1 You acknowledge and agree that bribery is a serious criminal offence; accordingly you must not do anything that may be construed or perceived by us as bribery, whether intended for our or your own advantage of any kind; without prejudice to any other remedy available to us, breach of this provision shall entitle us to terminate any Assignment and our Services to you immediately without notice.
Section 10 – payment
10.0 Our arrangements with the Client require that normally we cannot invoice the Client for our fees in respect of work done by you unless we provide to the Client a copy of a timesheet in each case recording hours actually worked and verified and signed by an authorised representative of the Client or End User (“Signed Timesheet”); further as you are paid for time worked we cannot pay you unless we have a record from you of the actual time that you have worked; accordingly you will keep accurate records of the hours you have worked in each case and provide us with a Signed Timesheet promptly.
10.1 If it is not possible for you to obtain a Signed Timesheet, and you provide a timesheet to us correctly recording hours that you have worked together with a full and satisfactory explanation to us of the circumstances relating to the failure or refusal of the Client to sign or verify the timesheet we shall, subject to our reasonable verification that such hours have been worked by you, treat the timesheet as a Signed Timesheet for the purposes of payment to you.
10.2 You agree and acknowledge that, if you do not submit a Signed Timesheet to us promptly during an Assignment, payment to you may be delayed; you also agree that if you should fail to submit a timesheet to us because of your own default within 40 days of the end of the relevant Assignment we may suffer loss as we may be unable to recover sums due to us from the Client; if, as a consequence of your delay and after we have made reasonable efforts to obtain the same, we are unable to recover our fees from the relevant Client, we shall nevertheless pay you but you will be liable to us for any loss that we suffer . NOTE: YOU SHOULD SEND IN YOUR TIMESHEETS PROMPTLY TO AVOID DELAY IN PAYMENT. YOU MAY SUFFER LOSS IF YOU DO NOT DO SO.
10.3 Subject to clauses 10.0 to 10.2 we shall pay you in accordance with the Payment Terms based on work performed by you during an Assignment, for time that you take as leave entitlement under the WTR, and for any Expenses, but not further or otherwise except as specifically required by statute.
10.4 Sums due to you will be calculated at the Pay Rate, net of PAYE and employee National Insurance contributions (as required by s.44 Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003) and any other statutory deductions; we shall include sums due to you for time that you take as leave as referred to in clause 11.0(d) with the payment immediately following the time in the month that you take your statutory leave.
10.5 Any sums owed by you to us under this agreement, including any excess payment of Holiday Pay over your statutory entitlement, may be deducted from any payment due to you at any time including upon termination of this agreement.
10.6 We undertake to pay you in respect of work done by you whether or not we are paid by the Client.

(i) if we notify you of a minor amendment to this agreement such amendment will apply from the date of notification unless you shall within 14 days of receipt of such notification inform us in writing that the amendment is not agreed.
