Community Guidelines

 

Remuneration

You will be paid in accordance with the gross hourly rates set out in the terms of your Engagement, as agreed between you and the employer (the “Remuneration”) initially located on the job/shift listing on the app.

You’re responsible for paying tax and National Insurance on your income. It’s important to stay on top of all your records in order to work out how much you need to pay.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Remuneration shall never be less than £9 per hour on a temporary role. Permanent roles’ remuneration shall never be less than the minimum hourly rates set out in the laws of England and Wales.

Timesheets

At the beginning AND end of each shift, you must clock in/out using the mobile app whilst on site. This is in addition to any separate procedure that the employer may require you to comply with.

Whilst clocked in, your location may be monitored by Broadstone using your phone’s GPS, either in real-time or retrospectively.

In order to be considered in the next pay cycle, any amendment requests to timesheets must be made by the end of the week in which the query arises (week runs Mon – Sun).

If an amendment request is made after the week of the shift, the request may not go into effect until the following pay cycle.

If you have any issues clocking in/out or your timesheet, please contact us immediately on support@broadstone-engage.com.

The following behaviour will be regarded as misconduct which could entitle the Client to ask you to leave the Shift/Engagement:

(a) Theft and/or fraud.

(b) Discrimination, bullying and harassment (of any nature).
