Document Description

This is a Secondment Agreement between two parties, the Employer and the Host, regarding the secondment of an Employee for a specified period. The Employee will provide services to the Host as agreed in writing. During the Secondment Period, the Employee will remain an employee of the Employer and be subject to the employer's policies and terms of employment.

The Host will manage and supervise the Employee during the Secondment period and be responsible for providing a safe working environment, clear performance expectations, and assessment of performance. Unless otherwise agreed, the Employee will receive the same salary and benefits from the Employer before the Secondment commenced, and the Employer will be responsible for paying salary, benefits, and other associated costs during the Secondment Period. Where the Employee is required to travel on behalf of the Host, the Host will be responsible for paying travel costs. The Employee is entitled to leave as per the applicable employment laws and the Employer's rules. The Host will reimburse the Employee directly for any expenses incurred during the Secondment. The Host will indemnify the Employer against any expense, loss, or claims arising out of the services by the Employee. In consideration for the provision of services by the Employee, the Host will pay the Employer a fee payable in accordance with the schedule agreed upon. This agreement outlines the rights and obligations of the Parties and provides for the protection of the parties' interests in the event of disputes.
