Remuneration and Time Sheets
Subject to me submitting properly authorised timesheets via Eden Scott’s online timesheet system, Eden Scott shall pay to me the rate of pay specified in the relevant Assignment Letter for a particular Assignment. The minimum rate of pay Eden Scott reasonably expects to achieve for me is the lowest rate specified by me. This rate will be subject to review by me and Eden Scott.
Eden Scott shall pay me for all hours worked on a weekly/monthly (which will be agreed and stated on the Assignment Schedule) basis regardless of whether Eden Scott has received payment from the Client for those hours. I acknowledge that, if I fail to correctly submit a properly authorised timesheet, any payment due to me may be delayed while Eden Scott investigates (in a timely fashion) what hours, if any, were worked by me. Eden Scott shall make no payment to me for hours not worked
Eden Scott, the Client or I may terminate the assignment at any time by giving one week’s notice. Should a different notice period apply to a particular assignment, this will be specified in the Assignment Letter

Unless exceptional circumstances apply, my failure to inform the Client or Eden Scott of my inability to attend work will be treated as termination of the assignment by me.
