Specific Second Out / Second In Terms
This section only applies to companies - not the individual job seeker.
Companies who use electricianXchange for labour seconding purposes accept and agree to the following terms:
This section of the web site is to be used to second out or second in excess labour / required labour, with the intention of benefiting employers and labour both.
Employers benefit through seconding labour during peaks and troughs each employer faces through the year. Labour benefit from continuing to be employed during lean times their employer faces, while being cross-trained at another entity. Entities needing staff benefit from potentially seconding in labour at negotiated rates – with the market discount to reduce the rate being borne by the employer seconding out the staff and not borne by the staff undertaking the work. This is a crucial point of the electricianXchange Second Out / Second In module. It provides an employer with excess staff who they wish to retain a chance to get some salary recovery by having them work elsewhere.
All the labour secondment in and secondment out will be done at arm’s length via the web site, with the site bringing together employers with excess staff and entities needing staff for what would be short term hires.
By proceeding to use the site you are agreeing to have entered into a commercial agreement to second labour for a limited period and that the arrangement does not constitute an employment or individual contractor arrangement or the like. Any relevant employee of the Seconding Out Employer shall be on loan to the Seconding In entity for work to be done at the Seconding In entity's direction for the periods agreed upon, subject to the following further conditions:
Labour related fees charged by electricianXchangeR
There are two levels of fees charged by electricianXchange to Seconding out employers / Seconding out entities.
There will be an initial fee, for placing the labour secondment in or labour secondment out advertisements.
This is a fee inclusive of GST based on a percentage of the sliding scale of the total labour value and will be clearly displayed on the website before it being charged via credit card payment.
This needs to be paid by the employers placing the labour ads.
Upon the labour secondment out / labour secondment in advertisement being placed, this will be notified to other entities for bids to be placed.
Bids for the labour need, can then be placed by other entities via the web site.
Personal details of the employers and entities will not be displayed until agreement is reached.
Upon agreement being reached between two willing parties for the labour advertised, a commission as a percent of the labour cost will also need to be paid to electricianXchange via credit card before details of the other employer / entity are made available.
Before a bid is made by an employer / entity, the following information will be made available to facilitate a decision being made about whether the employer with the need should go ahead or not:
What’s important for both the employer and the entity is the fact that even though the two will not know each other while they are bidding for the staff between themselves, they can be assured that the staff they are taking on will be at an industry acceptable level through the agreement both parties enter into before bids can proceed.
Staff being seconded out or seconded in MUST always be paid whatever they were being paid before this Labour Secondment In or Labour Secondment Out arrangements eventuated. Any entity seen paying their staff at less than enterprise wage levels will be permanently barred from using the website.
The labour numbers and the discount can be negotiated and counter-negotiated multiple times at no additional cost until agreement is reached between two bidding entities.
This will be done between the employer and the entity at arms length through the web site.
Upon agreement being reached between two companies, a commission will then be charged by electricianXchange to the initiating company (Labour Secondment In or Labour Secondment Out) and a flat fee charged to the bidding company before personal details are released for the two companies to liaise with each other to second in or second out the labour at agreed variables and terms.
