Schedule 1


In this Schedule the following words have the following meanings:

"Deemed Annual Remuneration"            the Remuneration actually paid to the Temporary Worker multiplied by such amount in order to calculate the Remuneration the Temporary Worker would have received had they worked for a 12 month period.

"Remuneration"                              any wage, salary, pay (whether hourly or otherwise), fee, bonus, commission, holiday pay or other compensation referable to the Temporary Worker's placement, employment or engagement by the Client, whether payable under their contract or otherwise.

The Introduction Fee shall be:

  • 17.5% of the Remuneration paid to the Temporary Worker during the first 12 months of the Assignment; or
  • If the Temporary Worker has not been engaged for 12 months; 17.5% of the Deemed Annual Remuneration.

For example, if the Temporary Worker's was 4 months into an Assignment when the Client Engages the Temporary Worker, the Deemed Annual Remuneration will be the Remuneration actually received multiplied by 3 (4 months multiplied by 3 calculates the 12 month Remuneration received).

If the Temporary Worker Remuneration for the 4 month period was £10,000.00 gross, the Deemed Annual Remuneration would be £30,000.00.

The Introduction Fee would therefore be 17.5% of £30,000.00 - £5,250.00.
