Term and Termination

These Terms will remain in full force and effect while You are a User of any Fratres Site. Fratres reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to pursue all of its legal remedies, including but not limited to removal of Your User Content from the Fratres Sites and immediate termination of Your registration with or ability to access the Fratres Sites and/or any other services provided to You by Fratres, upon any breach by You of these Terms or if Fratres is unable to verify or authenticate any information You submit to a Fratres Site registration. Even after You are no longer a User of the Fratres Sites, certain provisions of these Terms will remain in effect, including Sections 1, 2, 5, 7 through 16, inclusive.

Scope of Fratres’s Obligations

The sole exception to the above is where Fratres provides its “Talent Serve” service. The Talent Serve may involve the introduction and supply of work-seekers to hirers (and vice versa) but it does not involve the introduction or supply of work-seekers for any job position which involves working with, caring for or attending a vulnerable person.
In providing the Talent Serve service, Fratres will use reasonable endeavours to confirm that the work-seeker is willing to work in the position. Furthermore, Fratres will use reasonable endeavours to check the identity of the hirer and the nature of its business, the commencement date and duration of the position, the position to be filled including the type of work, location, hours and risks to health and safety, experience, training, qualifications and authorisation which the hirer considers necessary or are required by law or otherwise to undertake the position, whether any expenses are payable by the work-seeker or whether there are any requirements imposed by law or otherwise for a work-seeker to satisfy before taking up a position.
The Regulations seek to ensure that work-seekers are only proposed by Employment Agencies for roles for which they are properly qualified and that hirers are only offered work-seekers who have the appropriate levels of experience, training, qualifications and authorisation for the position to be filled. It is recommended that, if you are a work-seeker you undertake the steps set out in the Regulations to ensure your suitability for the role advertised or, if you are a recruiter, to ensure a work-seeker’s suitability for your role. These could include:
1. If you are a work-seeker; checking the identity of the hirer and the nature of its business, the commencement date and duration of the position, the position to be filled including type of work, location, hours and risks to health and safety, experience, training, qualifications and authorisation which the hirer considers necessary or are required by law or otherwise to undertake the position, whether any expenses are payable by you as a work-seeker or whether there are any requirements imposed by law or otherwise for you to satisfy before taking up a position.
2. If you are a hirer; checking the identity of the work-seeker and that the work-seeker has the experience, training, qualifications and authorisation required by law or otherwise for the position and whether there are any requirements imposed by law or otherwise for you, as the hirer, to meet to enable a work-seeker to take up a position.
In addition, where professional qualifications are required or where work-seekers are to work with vulnerable persons or children, you should obtain copies of the relevant qualifications or authorisation, obtain at least two references from people who are not relatives of the work-seeker and undertake a criminal records bureau check of the work-seeker.
