This Service Agreement is effective from the date listed on the Statement of Work (SoW) as the start date and continues for one year from that date. This period is the initial term.
Either party can terminate this agreement by emailing notice to the other party at least thirty days before the last day of the initial term.
The SoW and the Service Agreement automatically renew for additional periods of one year, after the initial term.
Each resource is billed for 32 hours/week multiplied by their hourly rate unless otherwise noted. Invoices are submitted monthly and denominated in USD.
The hourly rate is calculated based on the complexity of the tasks you assign to a billable resource.
Occasionally programs change. As schedules or task assignments change; we update your SoW to reflect these changes.
The updates may have financial implications based on the complexity of the program or schedule updates that necessitate frequent overtime compensation for the people assigned to the program.
We invoice in advance of services rendered. When there is a discrepancy between the hours invoiced and the hours worked, the discrepancy will be credited on the following invoice.
When you require overtime beyond the scope of the SoW, you are obliged to pay for the overtime hours according to the following computation as mandated by the Philippines labor code:
|Category||Description||≤8 hours||>8 hours|
|Ordinary Day||Scheduled workday||100%||125%|
|Rest Day||Scheduled day(s) off||130%||169%|
|Regular Holiday||Scheduled national holidays||130%||260%|
You are not required to pay overtime for the work schedule defined in the SoW. If the program schedule changes, this will be reflected in an updated SoW.
Because we take a long view of our program engagements employees bring significant value over time, we charge more for tenured staff according to the following escalation:
|Year 1||Year 2||Year 3||Year 4||Year 5||Year 6+|
We apply the annual increase to the hourly rate on the anniversary of your assigned resource’s certification to the program.
Because back-office processes are more successful when we motivate your team with graduated incentives for the programs we manage.
We develop these incentives during the first 30-60 after your program launches. The incentives vary so we like to understand your program thoroughly before we propose an incentive plan.
Together, we devise incentive plans to reach your objectives and to maximize the program’s value. The incentives are included in the monthly invoice, subject to approval.
You agree to pay for any reasonable and actual business expenditure incurred by us at your direction. These might include, for example, third party, licensed software, telecommunications charges, web hosting, domains and privacy, or specialized computer hardware.
Either party may terminate this Agreement by giving at least thirty (30) days’ written notification.
Should you fail to pay the compensation defined in the accompanying SoW that is not the subject of a good faith dispute within thirty (30) days of the date due, we may terminate this agreement and the associated SoW.
We both agree to conduct our businesses and operations to maintain and increase the goodwill and reputation of all. Any violation of this may constitute a ground for termination of this agreement.
Both organizations, their employees, or any person acting for either organization will not disclose any information obtained in the course of our business relationship unless specifically authorized by the relevant parties.
This obligation of confidentiality shall survive the termination of this agreement.
We both agree not to contract with the clients or direct competitors without written consent for the duration of our business relationship and for a period of one year after our business relationship concludes — unless the client or competitor relationship predates the Agreement.
You agree not to solicit, induce, or encourage directly or indirectly any of our employees to leave the company while this Agreement is in effect and for one year after the date of completion of the Agreement.
You have no authority to bind Lambent by any promise or representation unless specifically authorized in writing by Lambent
Unless otherwise stated each party may use non-confidential information for marketing purposes.
Notices will be handled by email and are understood to be delivered upon email reply via from the recipient or confirmed by third-party software.
Neither party shall be liable for the delay or failure of performance caused by force majeure such as fire, explosion, accident, strike or other similar acts of God. This Agreement will be suspended for the duration of the event and resume when force majeure has ceased.
