  • The job information must be as clear and brief as possible for the benefit of the Applicants and the Client’s image, as well as that of G&A, not to mislead Applicants.

SERVICES AND FEES

When violated by the Client or its chosen agent, a penalty Fee may be fined to the Client up to 10% of the estimated Fee for the placement by the Client.

TRIAL PERIOD AND PLACEMENT GUARANTEE

  • The expression “trial period” is not based on the legal trial period or trial period binding in the Collective Agreement or local Labor Code as defined in the Agreement of employment between employer and employee, but is confirmed in the agreed Work-Order.
  • Should an employee, which has been recruited as a consequence of an G&A Executive Search, leave a placement, or be dismissed for any legitimate and reasonable reason (excluding sale of the Asset and/or change in Management Agreement or Company, or the Client withholding the employee's wages), within the trial period then G&A guarantees – where the balance has been received by G&A latest within 7-days from the date of invoice, to provide a single (once only) replacement Search up to a maximum shortlist of 3 Candidates at no additional cost – unless the newly placed Candidate is hired at a higher salary as the originally placed Candidate in which case the Success Fee will be newly calculated, and the difference to be paid by Client upon Agreement signature of the replacement Candidate.
  • In the event of no suitable replacement provided, G&A will issue a credit note, which can be used with a time limitation of 12-months for one further assignment, with a maximum limit of three shortlisted Candidates per this new assignment.

PAYMENT

  • Executive Search fees are based on the maximum total gross salary per full year, no less as the estimated fee advised in the Work-Order, exclusive of employer contribution and bonus/benefits, and are regardless of a scalable salary agreement whereby an initial salary grows over time. In the case of an agreed net salary, our fee will be increased by 2%, e.g. from 22% to 24%.
  • We require the first payment in the value of 10% on the estimated Success fee when being commissioning for the search. The second payment in the value of 25% on the estimated Success fee is due upon your acceptance of a shortlist of up to 3 Candidates, and the remaining fee is payable when the chosen Candidate signs an employment contract – not upon the starting date and not after a trial period. Discounts only apply when the Client settles within the agreed payment goal.
  • G&A must be informed by the Client, at once and without delay, upon contract agreement signature, between Candidate and Client of the agreed Conditions (may this be a Labour agreement or Service agreement) by providing a copy of the employment/contract agreement.

  • G&A will issue an invoice to the Client upon agreement signature, between Candidate and Client, which is payable by the Client within 7-days from receipt of invoice (date of email sending applies). It is explicitly understood that payment of the G&A fee will not be put on hold by the Client until the start of employment, or until completion of a trail-period.
  • When the Client violates this – regardless if by mistake or with intent, G&A may serve an “incasso” by our credit agency which leads to the additional credit agency and legal fees payable by the Client.
  • Should a potential Candidate suggested by G&A at first be rejected by the Client, then the full fee is payable if the Client nevertheless employs the Candidate who has been introduced by G&A within 12 months of introduction.
