VIRTUOUS NURSES CORP’s Duties and Responsibilities

THE COMPANY’s Duties and Responsibilities

express prior written approval; and

 

Payment Terms, Bill Rates and Fees

  • THE COMPANY will pay VIRTUOUS NURSES CORP for its performance at the rates set forth on Exhibit A and will also pay any additional costs or fees set forth in this Agreement. VIRTUOUS NURSES CORP will invoice THE COMPANY for services provided under this Agreement on a seven day basis. Payment is due on receipt of invoice. Invoices will be supported by the pertinent time sheets or other  agreed system for documenting time worked by the Assigned Employees. THE COMPANY’s signature or other  agreed method of approval of the work time submitted for Assigned Employees certifies that the documented hours are correct and authorizes VIRTUOUS NURSES CORP to bill THE COMPANY for those  hours. If a portion of any invoice is disputed, THE COMPANY will pay the undisputed portion.
  • Assigned Employees are presumed to be non-exempt from laws requiring premium pay for overtime, holiday work, or weekend work. VIRTUOUS NURSES CORP will charge THE COMPANY special rates for premium work time only when an Assigned Employee’s work on assignment to THE COMPANY, viewed by itself, would legally require premium pay and THE COMPANY has authorized, directed, or allowed                                 the Assigned Employee to work such premium work time. THE COMPANY’s special billing rate for premium                                  hours will be the same multiple of the regular billing rate as VIRTUOUS NURSES CORP is required to apply to the Assigned Employee’s regular pay rate. (For example, when federal law requires 150%                               of pay for work exceeding 40 hours in a week, THE COMPANY will be billed at 150% of the regular bill rate.)
  • If THE COMPANY uses the services of any Assigned Employee as its direct employee, as an independent contractor, or through any person or firm other than VIRTUOUS NURSES CORP during of within 120 days after any assignment of the Assigned Employee to THE COMPANY from VIRTUOUS NURSES CORP, see Exhibit A for buy out of independent contractor from VIRTUOUS NURSES CORP.
