CONTRACTS WITH CLIENTS
The client must accept the JITS General Terms and Conditions for Temporary Staffing at registration. Each time a client accepts a candidate for a temporary position, Adia will generate a Temporary Employment Agreement that regulates the conditions of the respective assignment. The General Terms and Conditions for Temporary Staffing shall form the basis of each individual Assignment Contract and become a component of each Assignment Contract.
These contract documents will be created automatically by Adia and signed electronically by JITS. The client undertakes to sign all the contract documents legally. This can be done either by: (i) an electronic signature that meets the requirements of Swiss law, or (ii) signing the printed contract documents and returning them to JITS. In any event, the client undertakes to send to JITS a legally signed original copy of each contract document on request.

CONTRACTS WITH CANDIDATES
As soon as a candidate is given his first assignment with a client, two contractual documents will be generated by Adia: (i) a Framework Employment Agreement defining the rights and obligations between JITS and the candidate for the first and all subsequent assignments with all clients, and (ii) an Assignment Contract governing the conditions of the first assignment. A new Assignment Contract will be generated for all subsequent assignments with the same or a different client.
These contract documents will be created automatically by Adia and signed electronically by JITS. The candidate undertakes to sign all the contract documents legally. This can be done either by: (i) an electronic signature that meets the requirements of Swiss law, or (ii) signing the printed contract documents and returning them to JITS. In any event, the candidate undertakes to send to JITS a legally signed original copy of each contract document on request.
REGISTERING AS A CLIENT
Anyone looking for a temporary employee must register as a client. Only natural persons aged 18 years or over, who are resident in Switzerland, and legal entities and partnerships with registered offices in Switzerland may register. By registering, the client confirms that it has the necessary permits for its company. It also undertakes to comply with all public law employment regulations, as well as all provisions applicable to its operation from collective labour agreements. The person who carries out the registration as a client for a legal entity confirms that he is authorised to represent this legal entity.
The information provided by the client during registration must be true. All documents required by the client must be available to the client at the time of registration, and JITS is entitled at all times to request missing or expired documents. If the client does not comply immediately with such request, JITS is entitled to immediately block access by the client to Adia and immediately terminate any contracts with the client. Any other rights of JITS in the event of missing or incorrect information, in particular claims for damages, are reserved.
ASSESSMENT AT THE END OF THE ASSIGNMENT
After the end of each assignment, both the candidate and the client are invited to assess each other. All assessments must be done carefully, conscientiously and according to the criteria laid down by Adia.
JITS reserves the right to delete any type of rating that does not meet its requirements. JITS is also entitled to adjust the assessment criteria at any time. It can then transfer the existing assessments to the new criteria at its discretion.
BLOCKING ACCESS TO ADIA
JITS is entitled to block the candidate’s access to Adia if the candidate violates his obligations of these General Terms and Conditions. JITS is also entitled to exclude candidates from Adia who violate their obligations towards the client, in particular in the event of an unjustified absence from an assignment or failure to comply with the client’s instructions. JITS may also deny candidates access to Adia whose rating falls below the defined minimum level.
JITS is entitled to block the client’s access to Adia if the client violates its obligations as per these General Terms and Conditions. In particular, JITS is entitled to exclude a client from Adia if the client does not pay JITS bills outstanding from the temporary employment contract in due time, if the client is declared bankrupt or petitions for a definitive debt restructuring moratorium, or if there is otherwise reasonable suspicion of imminent insolvency. JITS is also entitled to exclude clients from Adia who violate their obligations towards the candidate. JITS may also deny clients access to Adia whose rating falls below the defined minimum level.
TIME RECORDINGAdia provides a time recording functionality for each candidate assignment. As soon as the candidate arrives at the agreed place of work, he will be able to check in to the assignment via Adia. Before leaving the place of work again, the candidate must check out from the assignment via Adia. The client can verify this information about the check-in and check-out from the assignment, and it can then confirm or correct the information provided by the candidate.
KEEPING USERNAME AND PASSWORD SAFEAdia usernames and passwords assigned to users during the registration process must be kept safe and not shared with third parties. If the username and password fall into the hands of third parties, JITS must be informed immediately. The user is accountable for the actions of unauthorised third parties, as for his own actions.
