  1. As to any and all fees due Subcontractor, as noted above, e3 Personnel shall pay Subcontractor on a “per Project” basis for all the services Subcontractor shall perform pursuant to this Agreement. The exact amount for the Project shall be agreed upon by e3 Personnel and Subcontractor prior to the Project being performed and noted above in this Agreement.

 

  1. Subcontractor shall obtain and maintain any licenses, training, equipment, tools, transportation and/or any other required items to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement, and agrees to reimburse e3 Personnel for any efforts or expenditure it shall make, on behalf of Subcontractor, for such items upon demand by e3 Personnel. Subcontractor agrees and acknowledges that it is not an employee and as such Subcontractor is not entitled to any medical, unemployment benefits, or overtime, and shall not be entitled to participate in or receive benefits from any of the employee benefit plans, programs or arrangements sponsored by Client or e3 Personnel, and Subcontractor waives any and all rights to assert a claim to collect any such benefits from either the Client or e3 Personnel. Since neither e3 Personnel, its affiliated companies, nor the Client is Subcontractor’s employer, there will be no insurance; Worker’s Comp or liability assumed or indemnified on Subcontractor’s behalf by either e3 Personnel or Client, and Subcontractor waives any and all rights to sue or to assert a claim to collect any such benefits from e3 Personnel and/or the Client. Subcontractor shall obtain and maintain adequate general liability, personal injury, property damage, motor vehicle liability and worker’s compensation insurance covering its personnel, property and/or its contractors performing services under this Agreement. Such coverage shall be in at least the minimum amounts required by law and evidence of such coverage shall be provided immediately upon e3 Personnel’s request. 

 

Nothing herein contained shall be construed to constitute the Parties hereto as partners or as joint venturers, or either as agent of the other, or as employer and employee. By virtue of the relationship described herein Subcontractor’s relationship to e3 Personnel during the Term of this Agreement shall only be that of an independent contractor and Subcontractor shall perform all of the services pursuant to this Agreement as an independent contractor. Subcontractor shall not provide any services under e3 Personnel’s business name and shall not present itself as an employee of e3 Personnel. Subject only to such specific limitations as are contained in this Agreement, the manner, means, details or methods by which Subcontractor performs its obligations under this Agreement shall be solely within the discretion of Subcontractor and no other.

 

  1. Any deposit shall be returned in full to e3 Personnel should Subcontractor not perform all or part of the contracted service(s). Subcontractor hereby acknowledges and agrees that while contracted by e3 Personnel and for a period of three (3) years from the termination date of the Project (defined above), Subcontractor shall not directly or indirectly solicit, divert, take away or interfere with any of e3 Personnel’s customers for the purposes of inducing such customers to patronize another business that provides the same, or substantially the same, products or services as e3 Personnel provides for such customers. Furthermore, if a court deems any of the provisions of this Agreement unenforceable for any reason, then the court shall have the power to limit the time and scope thereof to the maximum allowable under applicable law, and e3 Personnel and Subcontractor agree that such court imposed limitation shall be Subcontractor’s exclusive remedy under this Agreement and the Agreement shall not be otherwise rendered unenforceable as a whole. 

 

  1. Subcontractor agrees to keep any and all information, materials, files, etc., gathered during this Project strictly confidential. Subcontractor shall not duplicate, utilize, disseminate or disclose (written, orally or otherwise) and shall return any such information, materials or files upon the termination or request of the Project.

 

  1. Subcontractor shall disclose any conflicts of interests and fill out any forms as required by e3 Personnel and/or the Client. Also, Subcontractor shall designate an on-site supervisor from its personnel to monitor and record the hours of work by its personnel. A $75 accounting fee will be assessed to subcontractors requesting post event reports.

 

  1. Subcontractor for its services under this Agreement shall be paid the above noted Project Fee thirty (30) days after e3 Personnel receives an acceptable detailed itemized invoice from Subcontractor (minus meal breaks and any non-returned and/or damaged e3 Personnel items and/or property). Subcontractor agrees that e3 Personnel may deduct from the Project Fee the replacement value of such items and any other amounts owed to the e3 Personnel hereunder without incurring any liability to Subcontractor. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, Subcontractor shall be responsible for payment of its own taxes and all other required governmental payments, as they relate to the Project Fee. Subcontractor agrees to indemnify and hold harmless e3 Personnel and its Clients for any and all claims by the IRS and/or any state or other governmental entity relating to taxes and/or penalties due on the Project Fee. In the event that the Internal Revenue Service should determine that the Subcontractor is, according to I.R.S. guidelines, an employee subject to withholding, social security and Medicare contributions, then Subcontractor hereby acknowledges and agrees, that all payments to Subcontractor are gross payments, and as such Subcontractor is responsible for all income taxes and social security payments thereon. 

 

  1. (a) Subcontractor acknowledges that e3 Personnel has invested substantial time and expense to advertise for, screen, test and train its labor pool, including the temporary personnel and subcontractors supplied to Client by e3 Personnel. Therefore, Subcontractor agrees that neither Subcontractor nor any of its affiliates or associates shall, during the term of the contracted assignment and for a period of sixty (60) months from the last day of the assignment, hire such e3 Personnel temporary/subcontract personnel, directly or indirectly, either as an employee, vendor or independent contractor.

 

(b) In the event that Subcontractor or any of its affiliates or associates hire any e3 Personnel temporary personnel/subcontractor in contravention of the provisions of paragraph 8(a) above, Subcontractor shall pay e3 Personnel as liquidated damages, and not as a penalty, an amount equal to 30% of the projected annual salary or earnings (or anticipated earnings) to be paid to said personnel/subcontractor during the first 12 months of his or her engagement. If e3 Personnel has reasonable information to believe that Subcontractor has hired any such personnel in contravention of this section 8, e3 Personnel shall have the right, during regular business hours, to examine Subcontractor’s personnel/subcontractor records (including payroll) to determine whether such employment has in-fact occurred. Furthermore, if a court deems any of the provisions of this Agreement unenforceable for any reason, then the court shall have the power to limit the time and scope thereof to the maximum allowable under applicable law, and e3 Personnel and Subcontractor agree that such court imposed limitation shall be Subcontractor’s exclusive remedy under this Agreement and the Agreement shall not be otherwise rendered unenforceable as a whole.

 

  1. The Parties acknowledge that Subcontractor may contract with or be employed by, other non-e3 Personnel client persons or entities, provided that such contracting or employment does not conflict with the above non- solicitation, proprietary information and confidentiality provisions and, further does not interfere with its duties and responsibilities under this Agreement.
