It is important to understand the guidelines when working as a 1099 subcontractor with us. Here are the main points to remember:GeneralThis Vendor Agreement (“Agreement”) is between Trinity Event Staffing, Inc. (“Brand”), National Event Staffing, LLC (“Client”) and applicant (“Vendor”), (together the “Parties”).The intent of the Parties is to establish a relationship whereby Client contracts Vendor for individual assignments, not on a promised ongoing basis. Nothing in this Agreement should be construed to create an employer/employee or partnership relationship. This Agreement governs all interactions between the Parties, including matters of business, pay, state and federal regulations.Release of Claims Against ClientsVendor understands and agrees that Client is a scheduling service for Customers and as such neither Client nor Brand chooses the specific locations, tasks, conditions, circumstances or hazards that may result from any specific contracted assignment that Vendor may be contracted to work for Customer(s). As such, Vendor agrees to release and hold Brand and Client harmless for any physical injuries to Vendor that may occur while driving to and from and performing work at contracted job assignments through Client for Customer(s). Vendor further agrees that it is their sole responsibility to provide health coverage and worker’s compensation insurance for themselves. Vendor agrees that Client and Brand are NOT responsible for Vendor’s occupational health insurance, worker liability insurance and worker’s compensation insurance. Vendor agrees that these provisions together constitute a general release and expressly waives and assumes the risk for any and all claims for damages that may arise in the course of working contracted assignments for Client or with Customers.Confidentiality StatementVendor agrees to be prohibited from releasing to any other party any information whatsoever about Brand and/or Client which is of a confidential nature or which could be deemed to constitute a “trade secret.” Vendors are further prohibited from using, in any manner whatsoever, information, forms or otherwise from Brand and Client which are confidential, proprietary, or privileged; whether for their personal benefit or gain, or for that of any other person or company. Any information which has not been disclosed publicly in writing should be treated as confidential and proprietary.Contract AssignmentsVendor’s acceptance of contract assignments with Client does NOT constitute ongoing employment. Vendor agrees to update their availability weekly in their Stratus portal to remain an active Vendor. Not updating availability weekly in this way will be deemed Vendor’s voluntary withdrawal from accepting contract assignments. Vendor accepts responsibility for providing any unemployment compensation or insurance for their person(nel). Vendor understands that merely registering availability to receive work does not constitute receiving a work assignmentBackground Screening & Onsite InspectionsClient regularly schedules Vendors for secure locations, environments and events. Therefore, Vendor agrees that Client, Brand and/or Customers may conduct background screenings of Vendor to determine their eligibility for these specific assignments. Additionally, Vendor agrees that the security of its person(nel), Client, Customers, guests, high-profile attendees, government facilities, and other companies is essential; and therefore, consents to any requested search of Vendor’s vehicle, person and belongings while entering, working at or leaving contracted assignments or locations. The Background Screening Authorization is included by reference to this Agreement.Dispute ResolutionThis Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Texas. Any disputes between the Parties arising out of Vendor working contract assignments for Clients or Customers or related to this Agreement, shall be resolved in District Court in Dallas County, Texas.In case any one or more of the provisions contained in any part of this Agreement shall for any reason be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, then such provision(s) shall be amended to the degree necessary to render the provision(s) valid and enforceable.
