FOR Ophthalmologists:

I understand I need to comply with the associated employment rights and awards concerning Orthoptists, together with the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 .

URGENT POSITIONS:
(1) I understand that Find an Orthoptist has a contact list of Orthoptists who wish to be notified via: sms, should an urgent position arise. I understand that these Orthoptists have NOT been screened or interviewed by Find an Orthoptist. I understand it is the Ophthalmologists/practice managers/practice responsibility to view the urgent Orthoptists graduation certificate/CV/ & any other relevant work experience details on arrival, on the day of filling in urgently. Find an Orthoptist is not liable if the person arriving to fill in for the given urgent position is not appropriately qualified or fit for the urgent position.

(2) I understand that Find an Orthoptist asks to sight the Orthoptists CV/ graduation certificate - for the purpose of placing them officially on the urgent sms listing only. This sighting is not involved or associated with any screening or interviewing of the Orthoptist.

(3) I understand that when Find an Orthoptist locates an available Orthoptist to work the requested urgent position, then that Orthoptist's contact details will be given to the Ophthalmic practice, once payment (as outlined on the cost page) is made via: direct bank deposit. The Orthoptist's email of confirmation (agreement to fill in ) / Graduation certificate & CV will also be emailed to the Ophthalmic practice after payment, where all correspondence between Orthoptist & the ophthalmic practice will now occur directly between each other.

(4) I understand to initiate the ‘find urgently’ service, I need to BOTH: lodge an urgent request and then call the revealed mobile number.

(5) I understand that Find an Orthoptist endeavors to find an available Orthoptist urgently when requested, however it is not 100% guaranteed that an available Orthoptist will be located.

(6) If Find an Orthoptist is unable to locate an available Orthoptist, then no payment is to be made.

(7) If Find an Orthoptist locates an available Orthoptist, their contact details will not be given to the practice until payment is made.

(8) Find an Orthoptist will forward an email of confirmation to the practice, from the Orthoptist, which states they are willing to come in and work the urgent position.

(9) If for some reason the arranged Orthoptist fails to attend and work the urgent position, then no refund will be provided by Find an Orthoptist [note: should that situation arise, contact Find an Orthoptist again and another attempt to locate another Orthoptist will be made, at no extra charge (provided it is the same position as initially requested)]

(10) If the practice decides to withdraw their urgent request,  after Find an Orthoptist has already approached Orthoptists and/or is in conversation with Orthoptists and/or in the process of finalizing the Orthoptist/s - a cancelation fee of $90.00 will be charged to the practice, for simply a change of mind. This includes instances where the clinic, has re-arranged shifts of other Orthoptists within there practice and are now able to manage & do not require an Orthoptist to fill in anymore - a cancelation fee will still apply.

(11) I understand I can not personally contact the Orthoptist arriving to fill-in again in future. If any future urgent/position arises for the practice, Find an Orthoptist must be contacted and the Orthoptist will be contacted again by 'Find an Orthoptist. Under no circumstances can the practice approach the Orthoptist again who was originally sent by 'Find an Orthoptist'. Any breech of this will result in permanent suspension of all services related to Find an Orthoptist for both the practice and the Orthoptist involved, with legal prosecution attached. The practice may specify a particular Orthoptist by name when contacting Find an Orthoptist again in future.

(6) I understand a 'new ad alert' is also sent out automatically on the Find an Orthoptist Facebook business page, when an ad is uploaded onto the website. This is not the whole ad, as uploaded onto the website, it contains key essential points from the ad, then a note directing viewers to the website for full details.
