We understand that the needs and requirements of Practices can change quickly, and we pride ourselves on providing you with flexibility.

Any Processing Fees in relation to a cancelled shift are non-refundable and forfeited to us.

You agree that any Professionals engaged by you are engaged by you directly, and is a separate legal arrangement between you and the Professional, and not with us. You are free to agree other conditions with the Professionals, as long as those conditions comply with all relevant laws and are not inconsistent with these terms. You agree that such engagement must provide that Professionals be paid at the set hourly rate for every hour worked. Where applicable, you agree that such agreement must also provide that you pay all GST and other similar taxes imposed in connection with the supply of services by the Professional.
Any failure by a Practice to pay a Professional in full for any shift within the time stipulated on the Professional’s invoice will constitute a breach of these terms.
Except through the ongoing use of our services, for a period of three months after a Professional performs any shift with you, you agree that the Practice will not: (a) employ or engage that Professional either as an employee or a contractor of the Practice; or (b) solicit, induce or encourage that Professional to cease their relationship with Gig Pharmacists in any way. You acknowledge that any breach by you of this section would cause harm and damage to Gig Pharmacists, and in the event of breach we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your access to our platform, our website and/or our services. You acknowledge that the covenants contained in this section are fair and reasonable.

We may offer ‘money back guarantees’ from time to time at our discretion. Where we do so, we may refund your Processing Fee (or any part of such fee, as determined by us) in the event you are not satisfied with the performance of a Professional who you have engaged through Gig Pharmacists to undertake a shift for you. You must request a refund within five days after the relevant shift and provide us with details as to why you were not satisfied with the Professional. If we determine that the Professional you engaged through Gig Pharmacists did not perform up to a satisfactory standard, we will refund you your Processing Fee. We will not provide more than two refunds to a Practice in any six-month period.
If you are a Professional, this section applies to you and your use of Gig Pharmacists.
You will only become a Professional after your application is approved by us.
You agree that any engagement by Practices is an engagement by them directly, and is a separate legal arrangement between you and the Practice, and not with us.

If you are engaged to work a shift with a Practice, in addition to complying with any conditions you have agreed with your Practice, you must:
Without limiting the foregoing, you warrant that you possess and will deploy the specific skills and experience relevant to performing the relevant services.
Except through the ongoing use of our services, for a period of three months after you perform any shift with a Practice, you agree that you must not accept any position with that Practice either as an employee or a contractor. You acknowledge that any breach by you of this section would cause harm and damage to Gig Pharmacists, and in the event of breach we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your access to our platform, our website and/or our services. You acknowledge that the covenants contained in this section are fair and reasonable.
We pride ourselves on providing our Professionals with flexibility, however no-shows and last-minute cancellations can prevent us from providing our Practices with the best possible service. You agree to give us no less than 72 hours’ notice before the commencement of your shift if you are unwilling or unable to attend that shift. We may terminate your access to our platform, our website and/or our services in the event you fail to report for more than one shift in any six-month period.
You agree that you must perform each shift personally. You must not subcontract or assign your performance of any shift unless the relevant Practice has agreed.
Your conduct must not invite, directly or indirectly, any criticism of Gig Pharmacists or any proceedings or actions against Gig Pharmacists or bring into question the integrity or good reputation of Gig Pharmacists, our platform, our website or our services.
Relationship between Practices and Professionals
You agree that any engagements between Practices and Professionals are separate legal arrangements between such Practices and Professionals, and we are not involved in such separate legal arrangements.
Any work performed by a Professional under any such engagement with a Practice will be as an independent contractor to the Practice, and again we are not involved in such engagement. The engagement of a Professional to undertake a shift does not create a relationship of principal and agent, employer and employee, partnership or joint venture between any Professional and a Practice, or more importantly, with us.
Each Professional will invoice the Practice for the number of hours worked in each shift at the set hourly rate. Following a shift, the Professional will provide the Practice with a tax invoice setting out the Professional’s name, the amount payable, GST payable, the Professional’s ABN and the hours worked. The Practice is solely responsible for paying the Professional the set hourly rate and all remuneration to which they may be entitled.
You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for any relationship, agreement or arrangements between you and another user (whether they are a Professional or a Practice), and enter any transaction or dealings with another user at your own risk. Users accept liability for any decision made or action taken in reliance on any information contained or omitted from the website. We may facilitate the engagement between Practices and Professionals, but we are not a party to any agreement or arrangement entered into by or between users.
We are not responsible for resolving or dealing with any disputes, disagreements or matters in relation to any dealings between users (including, without limitation, disputes between Practices and Professionals regarding hours worked and invoices), and we are not obliged to be involved in such disputes, disagreements or matters in any way. If you have a dispute with one or more users, you release us (and our directors, employees and agents) from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known or unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
