The Participant will not be entitled to any Referral Award (as defined below) with respect to a Referred Candidate who does not meet the above eligibility criteria.  In the event that the same Referred Candidate is referred by another Participant, only the Participant who first referred the Referred Candidate will be entitled to any Referral Award.

referral awards

Each Referred Candidate who is successfully hired or engaged by Randstad Canada and completes a minimum placement length of 8 consecutive weeks (the “Minimum Placement Length”) on assignment with a client of Randstad Canada will be considered a “Successful Candidate”. If the Referred Candidate leaves a position or their placement ends for any reason (including, without limitation, voluntary resignation, termination with or without cause, death or incapacity) prior to completion of the Minimum Placement Length, no Referral Award will be payable with respect to that Referred Candidate.

For each Successful Candidate, the Participant shall be entitled to receive a one-time award (the “Referral Award”) in an amount between CAD $25-$500 (amounts will vary based on the region and role of the Referred Candidate). The maximum aggregate total Referral Awards payable to each Participant may not exceed $500 per calendar year. 

The Referral Award will be the sole form of compensation payable to Participants under the Program. Participants will not have the right to claim or seek reimbursement for any expenses or other costs incurred in connection with their participation in the Program. Referral Awards will be paid to Participants by way of a pre-paid Tango credit card, which will be mailed to the Participant at the address provided through the Site approximately 30 days following the completion of the Minimum Placement Length.
