Terms and Conditions

  1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS: By instructing Elias Recruitment Pty Ltd (“the Company”) on an assignment or by requesting details on a candidate from the Company, the party receiving the Company’s services (the “Client”) accepts and is bound by these Terms and Conditions.
  2. FEE SCHEDULE: In consideration of the Company providing recruitment services, the Client will pay the Placement Fee without set-off of any kind to the Company on successful placement of a candidate as per the proposal issued to the Client, or if no proposal has been issued, in accordance with our Commercial Placement Fee.
  3. PLACEMENT GUARANTEE: The Company offers a twelve (12) week guarantee period for permanent placements (“Placement Guarantee”) subject to conditions described below. If a candidate resigns or is lawfully dismissed within the guarantee period for any reason (other than retrenchment, redundancy or office relocation), a Placement Guarantee will apply as follows. The Company will endeavour to provide a similar replacement at no charge provided it is notified in writing of the date and grounds for the termination of the engagement within five working days of the disengagement. The placement guarantee is conditional upon full payment of the Placement Fee within fourteen days of the date of any invoice. No Placement Guarantee applies for a replacement candidate.
  4. TERMS OF PAYMENT: A Tax Invoice will be issued on the day of placement setting out the Placement Fee and must be paid in full within fourteen days of the candidate starting for the placement guarantee to be operative.
  5. CANDIDATE INTRODUCTION: All candidates referred to the Client either for interview or temporary work are covered by our candidate introduction policy. Should the Client offer employment directly or indirectly (ie referral to a third party), within a twelve month period from the date of the introduction, the Client agrees to be invoiced and pay the Commercial Placement Fee immediately and agrees to provide any information required to calculate the Commercial Placement Fee, including providing proof of the salary being paid to a candidate.
  6. TEMPORARY TO PERMANENT CONVERSION: If the Client wishes to employ a temporary staff member on a permanent basis, our standard pricing schedule will apply on the first year’s annual package.
  7. CANCELLATION OF ASSIGNMENT: By briefing the Company to fill a role, we incur certain costs including advertising, administration and time. In the event the assignment is cancelled or filled through alternate means including another agency or an internal candidate, the Client agrees to pay a cancellation fee of $2,500 (+GST). This does not apply for retained assignments.
  8. CONFIDENTIALITY/INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY: Any information whether written or oral provided to the Client by the Company remains strictly confidential and is for the exclusive use of the Client. All intellectual property of the Company shall remain the property of the Company.
  9. DISCLAIMER: When accepting a candidate, the Client is accepting the responsibility to supervise that employee, and therefore the resultant accountability for the standard of work performed. The Client agrees to satisfy themselves as to the suitability of any applicants and shall take up any references provided by a Candidate before engaging such candidate. To the extent permitted by law, the Company makes no warranty as to the suitability of any candidate introduced to the Client nor does it accept any liability for any misrepresentation concerning candidates introduced and shall not be liable for any loss (whether direct or indirect loss including economic or consequential loss) arising from or in any way connected to the introduction of, or failure to introduce, a candidate to the Client, for the suitability of or any conduct of any candidates referred to the Client. The Company limits its liability with respect to any placements to the value of the relevant placement fee.
  10. AMENDMENT: These terms cannot be amended without the written agreement of a Director of the Company and the Client.
