or fulfilled by you. ShiftKey may, but is not required to, notify you when such Credentials or other

and/or fulfill Shifts. You further agree to promptly notify ShiftKey in the event any such proceedings or
investigations are pending or are instituted, whether or not such proceedings are related to professional
services you performed for a Facility using the Services.
Shift Fee Calculation and Your Payment.
Prior to accepting a Shift, you are entitled to set the hourly rate that you wish to be paid during the
Shift (“Bid Rate”). On the Site, you may bid for Shifts by inputting your Bid Rate, the times that you are
available, and your geographic location. If a facility chooses you for a Shift, you will be paid the Bid
Rate for as many hours you work (“Bid Fee”) subject to any adjustments pursuant to this Agreement and/or the
Cancellation Charges provisions in Section 5.5. The Revenue Sharing Fee (as defined below) plus the Bid Fee
will be the total fee charged to the Facility (“Shift Fee”). Bid Fees are subject to change due to any
adjustments or extensions requested by the Facility after the Shift has been accepted by the Provider. After
an adjusted estimate, and at the Provider’s sole discretion, the Bid Fee shall be agreed to by the Provider
and the Facility. You acknowledge and agree that the Bid Fee, including any agreed upon adjustment, is the
only payment you will receive in connection with each Shift. You: (i) appoint ShiftKey as your limited
payment collection agent solely for the purpose of accepting the Bid Fee, and, depending on the Territory
and/or if requested by you, applicable taxes and fees from the Facility on your behalf via the payment
processing functionality facilitated by the ShiftKey Services; and (ii) agree that payment made by Facility
to ShiftKey (or to an Affiliate of ShiftKey acting as an agent of ShiftKey) shall be considered the same as
payment made directly by Facility to you. You shall always have the right to request that ShiftKey, on your
behalf: (i) charge a fee that is less than the pre-arranged Bid Fee; or (ii) negotiate, at your request, a
Bid Fee that is lower than the prearranged Bid Fee (each of (i) and (ii) herein, a “Negotiated Fee”).
ShiftKey shall consider all such requests from you in good faith. If you have separately agreed with
ShiftKey that other amounts may be deducted from the Bid Fee prior to remittance to you – including the $70
fee that will be split over your first two Shifts for fees initially incurred by ShiftKey on your behalf for
background checks – the order of any such deductions from the Bid Fee shall be determined exclusively by
ShiftKey (as between you and ShiftKey).
Revenue Sharing Fee.
In consideration of ShiftKey’s provision of the Services for your use and benefit hereunder, you agree to
allow ShiftKey to collect a service fee on a per Shift basis calculated on a variable percentage of the
Shift Fee as provided to you via email or otherwise made available electronically by ShiftKey from time to
time for the applicable Facility or Territory (“Revenue Sharing Fee”). In the event regulations applicable
to the Territory in which you fulfill a Shift require taxes to be calculated on the Shift Fee, ShiftKey
shall calculate the Revenue Sharing Fee based on the Shift Fee net of such taxes. ShiftKey reserves the
right to change the Revenue Sharing Fee at any time in ShiftKey’s discretion and ShiftKey will provide you
with notice in the event of such change. Continued use of the Services after any such change in the Revenue
Sharing Fee calculation shall constitute your consent to such change.
You acknowledge and agree that Facilities may, up to two (2) hours prior to the scheduled start of any Shift
that you have accepted and scheduled through the Platform, elect to cancel such Shift without incurring any
financial liability. In the event that a Facility cancels an accepted and scheduled Shift within two (2)
hours of the scheduled start time indicated in the applicable Shift listing or if the Facility cancels a
Shift after you have arrived and begun fulfilling such Shift but prior to you having made contact with any
patients, you will be compensated by Facility for the greater of (a) two (2) hours and (b) the total number
of hours actually worked, at the applicable rate. If the Facility cancels the Shift after you have made
contact with patients on behalf of the Facility, you shall be compensated by Facility for the greater of (a)
four (4) hours and (b) the total number of hours actually worked, at the applicable. You agree that the
foregoing payments are the only payments, if any, that you will be entitled to receive as a result of a
Facility cancelling a Shift.
Shift Verification Prior to Payment.
Upon completion of any Shift, you shall submit to ShiftKey a properly completed and error free Shift record
confirmation, in a form reasonably satisfactory to the Facility, for the Facility’s approval. You must
monitor such Shift record verification process through ShiftKey’s online Shift management program on the
Platforms. Any Shift completed that was not scheduled and verified through the Platforms will not be paid or
payable by or through ShiftKey.
Timely Recordation of Shifts.
You have up to fifteen (15) days following the completion of any Shift to submit Shift records to ShiftKey
for approval from the Facility and payment.
Methods of Payment.
ShiftKey facilitates payments to you from the Facility for Healthcare Services you provide during Shifts via
a pay card or Automated Clearing House (“ACH”) deposit.
ShiftKey makes payments via direct wire Monday – Friday onto a Rapid! PayCard. The initial fee you
pay for such card is $7.95 and $12.50 if you require a replacement card. For each time that you are
pursuant to this Agreement via a Rapid! PayCard, there is a $2.95 per transaction fee to load the
ACH deposit payments are distributed each Monday following the Sunday through Saturday workweek.
ShiftKey works hard to make sure that Facilities are happy with the services provided by licensed healthcare
providers during Shifts, but we understand that this is not always going to be the case. When a Facility is
not satisfied with a licensed healthcare provider’s services that are provided during a Shift, and such
dissatisfaction is reported to ShiftKey we may, at our discretion, issue a refund or adjust the Shift Fee,
and any components thereof, for such Shift. As a result, this may affect the amount paid to licensed
healthcare provider, such as yourself. We call these instances “Shift Disputes.” A Shift Dispute includes,
but is not limited to, the following: (a) when the licensed healthcare provider was incapable of or
unwilling to adequately perform the services agreed to for the Shift; (b) when the licensed healthcare
provider inaccurately inputs the hours worked for a given Shift into the ShiftKey system, on any Shift
record confirmation or otherwise, and, as a result, was or may be overpaid for the Shift; (c) if during the
Shift, the licensed healthcare provider did not comply with safety or health standards that were required
given the nature of the particular Shift or otherwise fails to comply with applicable law or the applicable
Facility’s standards, policies, practices, an procedures governing applicable to Provider in the fulfillment
of such Shift. If a Facility submits a Shift Dispute, ShiftKey will investigate the matter. After we receive
a Shift Dispute, we will contact you for you to provide any information regarding the matter.
In the event that you are paid more for any Shift than is called for by the Shift Fee, as adjusted pursuant
to this Agreement due to any inaccuracies on a Shift record confirmation, as a result of a Shift Dispute, or
otherwise, whether through clerical or technological error or otherwise, you agree and understand that
ShiftKey may recover the amount of overpayment through deduction(s) from future payments for other Shifts or
any other legal means available to ShiftKey. Unless you and ShiftKey otherwise agree in writing to a series
of smaller deductions in specified amounts, any such deduction(s) will be equal to, but never exceed, the
amount of the overpayment.
As part of the Services, ShiftKey provides you a system through the Platforms for the submission of Shift
record confirmations for which receipts are then submitted by ShiftKey, on your behalf, to Facilities for
Shifts completed. Upon your completion of a Shift for a Facility, and your successful submission of a Shift
record confirmation in accordance with this Agreement, ShiftKey prepares an applicable receipt and issues
such receipt to the Facility via email on your behalf. Such receipts are also provided to you via email or
are available through the Platforms. Receipts include the breakdown of amounts charged to the Facility for
the Shifts and may include specific information about you, including your name, contact information, as well
as a description of the Healthcare Services provided. You must notify ShiftKey, in writing, of any and all
errors or inaccuracies in any such receipt within five (5) business days after the earlier of ShiftKey
emailing you the applicable receipt or making the applicable receipt available to you on the Platforms.
Absent such a notice, ShiftKey shall not be liable to you for any mistakes in or corrections to the receipt
or for recalculation or disbursement of the Bid Fee or any payments that may be owed to you by the Facility
pursuant to this Agreement.
No Additional Amounts.
You acknowledge and agree that, for the mutual benefit of the parties, through advertising and marketing,
ShiftKey and its Affiliates may seek to attract new Facilities to use the Services and to increase existing
Facilities’ use of the Services. Such advertising and marketing may include the use of your information in
you to any payments or additional monetary amounts beyond the payments or amounts expressly set forth in
You acknowledge and agree that you are required to: (a) complete all tax registration obligations and
calculate and remit all tax liabilities and/or obligations related to your completion of Shifts as required
by applicable law; and (b) provide ShiftKey with all relevant tax information. You further acknowledge and
agree that you are responsible for the filing and payment of any and all taxes on your own income arising
from the performance of Shifts.
Cancellation by You.
You may cancel any request or bid for a specific Shift prior to acceptance and/or approval of such Shift by
the applicable Facility. Once you are approved or accepted for a specific Shift, you must communicate any
cancellations directly with the applicable Facility. Failure to perform an accepted and approved shift may result in deactivation of your account.
Cancellation by Facility.
You acknowledge and agree that Facilities may cancel an otherwise scheduled Shift in accordance with the
terms, conditions, and payment obligations, if any, found in Section 5.5 of this Agreement.
Notification of Cancelled Shift.
Shift cancellations are done solely through our Platforms. You should ensure proper notification settings
are enabled in your Account to be notified if there has been a change in an approved or accepted Shift or
if a Shift on which you have bid or requested has been approved, accepted, or modified by the applicable
Facility. ShiftKey is not responsible for your notification settings (i.e. text messages, emails, etc.) or
the receipt of any notifications. You acknowledge and agree that you alone, and not ShiftKey, are
responsible for enabling proper notification settings and ensuring your accurate and current contact
information is in your Account. Additionally, you alone are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of your
Shift schedules and availability on the Platforms and the status and fulfillment of all Shifts for which you
have requested and/or bid and for which an applicable Facility has accepted or approved.
