ALLGEMEINE GESCHÄFTSBEDINGUNGEN FÜR PERSONALVERMITTLUNGSDIENSTE

 

Diese Allgemeinen Geschäftsbedingungen für Personalvermittlungsdienste („AGB“) sind ab dem 30. Juli 2019 anwendbar und, sofern nichts anderes in diesen AGB ausgeführt ist, stellen sie die gesamte und einzige Vereinbarung zwischen den Parteien dar und ersetzen alle vorherigen und bereits bestehenden Abmachungen und Vereinbarungen zwischen dem Kunden und LHi Group GmbH, einem beim Amtsgericht München eingetragenen Unternehmen (Handelsregisternummer: HRB 213358) mit Sitz in der Seidlstraße 28, 80335 München, Deutschland („LHi“).

  1. PRÄAMBEL: LHi ist ein Personalvermittlungsunternehmen, das unabhängige Kandidaten zur Beschäftigung an Kunden vermittelt.

  2. VEREINBARUNG: Die Anforderung oder die Annahme von LHi´s Empfehlungen, die Durchführung von Vorstellungsgesprächen oder die Beschäftigung von durch LHi empfohlenen Kandidaten stellt die Annahme dieser AGB durch den Kunden dar. Diese AGB werden zudem durch die Unterzeichnung oder durch die Unterzeichnung einer Spezifikation für die Erbringung von Beratungsleistungen durch Dritte, sowie durch jegliche entsprechende Handlung seitens des Kunden angenommen.

  3. ENTGELTE UND AUFWENDUNGEN: Wenn ein Kandidat vom Kunden beschäftigt wird, berechnet sich LHi´s Vermittlungsgebühr nach der unten stehenden Tabelle. Die Vermittlungsgebühr ist ein prozentualer Anteil der voraussichtlichen Bruttovergütung des Kandidaten für dessen erstes Beschäftigungsjahr. Diese beinhaltet die garantierte Jahresbruttovergütung zuzüglich erfolgsabhängiger und erfolgsunabhängiger Zusatzleistungen wie Boni, Vertragsabschluss- und sonstige Prämien, Schichtzuschläge, KfZ-Nutzungsentschädigung, Leistungen bei Versetzung an einen anderen Arbeitsort, Provisionen, Aktienpakete und alle anderen Leistungen die dem Kandidaten gewährt werden. Die Höhe des prozentualen Anteils hängt von der Höhe der zu erwartenden Jahresbruttovergütung ab:

    Euro 0-55.000                           25%
    Euro 55.000,01 – 85.000           30%
    Euro 85.000,01 & darüber         35%

    LHi‘s Vermittlungsgebühr für befristete Anstellungen berechnet sich anteilig der oben stehenden Tabelle.

    Wenn ein Kandidat vom Kunden auf Vertragsbasis (freiberuflich) beschäftigt wird, hat der Kunde die in der Leistungsbeschreibung angegebenen Entgelte zu zahlen.

    Dies gilt nicht, wenn die Beschäftigung im Rahmen einer Spezifikation für die Erbringung von Beratungsleistungen durch Dritte erfolgt. In diesem Fall hat der Kunde die in der Spezifikation festgelegten Entgelte zu zahlen.

    Soweit nichts anderes vereinbart ist, besteht LHi´s Anspruch auf die Zahlung des Entgelts sowie die Verpflichtung des Kunden zur Zahlung des selben, wenn die Empfehlung eines Kandidaten kausal für die direkte oder indirekte Beschäftigung des Kandidaten durch den Kunden ist. Der Kunde hat LHi unverzüglich Kopien der Verträge oder anderer Dokumente und Informationen, die notwendig sind, um das entsprechende Entgelt zu berechnen, zur Verfügung zu stellen.

    LHi´s Entgelt beträgt mindestens 12.500 €, gegebenenfalls zuzüglich MwSt. Sollte ein bereits akzeptiertes Beschäftigungsangebot vor dem Beginn der Beschäftigung des Kandidaten beim Kunden zurückgezogen werden, hat der Kunde an LHi eine Verwaltungsgebühr von 2.500 € zu zahlen. Der Kunde hat zudem sämtliche genehmigte Aufwendungen zu erstatten, die LHi bei der Erbringung ihrer Leistungen im Rahmen dieser AGB entstanden sind.

  4. Kausalität: Eine Empfehlung von LHi gilt als kausal für jedwede Beschäftigung, die innerhalb eines Zeitraumes von 12 Monaten ab: (i) der letzten Empfehlung oder Vermittlung des Kandidaten durch LHi an den Kunden oder (ii) der bzw. des letzten aus einer solchen Empfehlung entstandenen Kommunikation, Meetings oder Vorstellungsgesprächs, Angebotes oder ähnlichen Tätigkeit mit dem Kandidaten oder (iii) der letzten Kommunikation des Kunden mit einem Mitarbeiter von LHi bezüglich der Empfehlung und / oder des Kandidaten verhandelt bzw. arrangiert wird oder beginnt.

Sollte LHi einen Kandidaten empfehlen, der bereits aktiv vom Kunden in Betracht gezogen wird und sollte der Kunde LHi innerhalb von 3 Werktagen nach der Empfehlung hiervon in Kenntnis setzen, so schuldet der Kunde LHi kein Entgelt, wenn er diesen Kandidaten beschäftigt. Auf Anfrage muss der Kunde diejenigen von LHi billigerweise geforderten Unterlagen zur Verfügung stellen, welche notwendig sind, um dies darzulegen.

  1. ERSATZ & ERMÄSSIGUNG: Sollte die Beschäftigung eines Kandidaten, der im Rahmen dieser AGB für ein dauerhaftes Arbeitsverhältnis empfohlen wurde, aus im Verhalten oder in der Person des Kandidaten liegenden Gründen innerhalb von 8 Wochen nach Beginn eines solchen dauerhaften Arbeitsverhältnisses enden, so wird LHi versuchen, innerhalb von 8 Wochen einen Ersatz zu empfehlen. Diese 8 Wochen beginnen mit dem Datum, an dem der Kunde LHi von der Beendigung in Kenntnis setzt. Für die Ersatzsuche wird LHi kein zusätzliches Entgelt berechnen. Dies gilt nur, wenn der Kunde sich nach besten Kräften bemüht, LHi beim Finden eines Ersatzes zu unterstützen.

Andernfalls soll LHi das entsprechende Entgelt unter Abzug von 12.5% in Bezug auf jeden Zeitraum von einer Woche (oder einen Teil davon) bis zu maximal 8 Wochen, in dem der Kandidat in einem dauerhaften Arbeitsverhältnis beim Kunden beschäftigt ist, zurückerstatten.

Die Regelungen zum Ersatz und der Ermäßigung gelten nicht, wenn der Kandidat rechtswidrig entlassen wurde, sein Arbeitsplatz abgeschafft wurde oder er kündigt, weil der Kunde die Arbeitstätigkeit des Kandidaten erheblich geändert hat oder ihm eine andere Position zugewiesen hat. Die Regelungen gelten zudem nicht, wenn der Kunde LHi nicht innerhalb von 7 Tagen nach Ausspruch der Kündigung durch den Kunden oder den Kandidaten schriftlich hiervon benachrichtigt, oder wenn der Kunde es versäumt, sämtliche aus dieser Empfehlung fälligen Entgelte und Aufwendungen rechtzeitig zu zahlen.

  1. ZAHLUNGSBEDINGUNGEN: Der Kunde verpflichtet sich, alle Entgelte und Aufwendungen innerhalb von 14 Tagen ab dem Rechnungsdatum oder dem Beginn der Beschäftigung eines Kandidaten oder der Annahme eines Beschäftigungsangebots zu zahlen (je nachdem, welches Ereignis früher eintritt). Für unbezahlte fällige Entgelte werden Zinsen in Höhe von 5% über dem Basiszinssatz berechnet.

Der Kunde muss LHi innerhalb von 7 Tagen nach Annahme eines Beschäftigungsangebots durch den Kandidaten oder Beginn der Beschäftigung eines Kandidaten (je nachdem, welcher Zeitpunkt früher eintritt) alle Bestellungen oder andere Dokumente zur Verfügung stellen, die für LHi notwendig sind, um die entsprechende Rechnung auszustellen. Sollte der Kunde dies nicht tun, ist LHi berechtigt, die Rechnung an den Kunden ohne eine entsprechende Bestellung, die Einhaltung eines Rechnungslegungsprozesses oder Ähnlichem zu stellen.

Macht der Kunde geltend, dass kein oder ein geringeres Entgelt in Bezug auf einen von LHi empfohlenen oder vermittelten Kandidaten fällig ist, muss der Kunde jegliches unbestrittenes Entgelt bzw. den unbestrittenen Teil des Entgeltes pünktlich zahlen und auf LHi´s Anfrage hin diejenige Korrespondenz oder diejenigen Unterlagen zur Verfügung stellen, die notwendig für LHi sind, um die korrekte Höhe des zahlbaren Entgeltes zu ermitteln.

  1. VERTRAULICHKEIT: Keine Partei darf während der Laufzeit dieser AGB oder der jeweiligen Spezifikation derselben für die Erbringung von Beratungsleistungen durch Dritte, sowie nach deren Ablauf oder Beendigung ohne die vorherige schriftliche Zustimmung der anderen Partei Informationen, welche als vertraulich kenntlich gemacht sind oder welche ihrer Natur nach vertraulich sind, verwenden oder gegenüber Dritten offenlegen.

Insbesondere sind Empfehlungen von LHi vertraulich. Sollte der Kunde Einzelheiten bezüglich eines von LHi empfohlenen Kandidaten gegenüber einem Dritten offenlegen und sollte diese Offenlegung eine direkte oder indirekte Beschäftigung des Kandidaten beim oder durch den Dritten zur Folge haben, muss der Kunde an LHi das in Klausel 3 dieser AGB festgelegte Entgelt zahlen, als ob der Kunde den Kandidaten beschäftigt hat, ohne jedoch einen Anspruch auf Ersatz oder anteilige Ermäßigung zu erhalten.

LHi hat das Recht und die Erlaubnis, den Namen und das Logo des Kunden sowie Referenzen und sonstige schriftliche Äußerungen des Kunden in jeglichen Marketing-Materialien zu verwenden.

  1. AUSSCHLUSSKLAUSEL: LHi unternimmt angemessene Anstrengungen bezüglich der Empfehlung und Vermittlung von Kandidaten und der Richtigkeit der bezüglich eines Kandidaten zur Verfügung gestellten Informationen. LHi gewährleistet jedoch nicht den Erfolg von Empfehlungen, die Richtigkeit dieser Informationen oder die Erbringung von Dienstleistungen durch einen Kandidaten. LHi haftet nicht für die Richtigkeit der von einem Kandidaten erhaltenen Informationen oder für Handlungen und Unterlassungen eines Kandidaten. Der Kunde muss diejenigen Nachforschungen anstellen, die er für die Überprüfung der Informationen eines Kandidaten als notwendig erachtet. Außerdem muss er sich diejenigen weiteren Informationen beschaffen, die er als relevant erachtet, einschließlich der Vergewisserung, dass der Kandidat die eventuell jeweils erforderliche Fähigkeit, Erfahrung oder Arbeitserlaubnis tatsächlich besitzt. Diese Aufzählung ist nicht abschließend.

  2. ABTRETUNG: Diese AGB und all ihre Bestimmungen sind für LHi und den Kunden sowie deren jeweiligen Rechtsnachfolger und berechtigte Zessionare bindend. Jedoch dürfen weder diese AGB noch ein/eine daraus erwachsende/s Recht, Anspruch oder Pflicht von einer Partei ohne die vorherige schriftliche Zustimmung der anderen Partei abgetreten werden.

  3. KENNTNISNAHME: Jegliche nach diesen AGB oder einer Spezifikation derselben für die Erbringung von Beratungsleistungen durch Dritte erforderliche Mitteilung hat per E-Mail oder per Einschreiben an den eingetragenen Sitz der jeweiligen Partei bzw. an eine jeweils gesondert vereinbarte Adresse zu erfolgen. Im Falle der Mitteilung per E-Mail ist für den Kunden die E-Mail-Adresse des Vertreters des Kunden zu verwenden; für LHi ist die folgende E-Mail-Adresse zu verwenden: notice@LHiglobal.com.

  4. ANWENDBARES RECHT UND GERICHTSBARKEIT: Auf diese AGB ist das Recht der Bundesrepublik Deutschland anwendbar. Soweit gesetzlich zulässig, ist der ausschließliche Gerichtsstand München.

  5. SCHRIFTFORMKLAUSEL: Jegliche Variation oder Änderung dieser AGB bedarf zu ihrer Gültigkeit der Schriftform sowie der Genehmigung eines Direktors von LHi. Dies gilt auch für die Änderung dieser Schriftformklausel.

  6. ARBEITNEHMERÜBERLASSUNG: LHi ist kein Verleiher im Sinne des Arbeitnehmerüberlassungsgesetzes (AÜG).

CONDITIONS COMMERCIALES APPLICABLES AUX SERVICES DE RECRUTEMENT

Les présentes Conditions Commerciales applicables aux Services de Recrutement (les « Conditions ») prennent effet à compter du 1er Juin 2018. Sauf mentions contraires elles constituent l’intégralité de l’accord remplaçant l’ensemble des déclarations et accords préexistants entre le Client et LHi Group Ltd, une société enregistrée en Angleterre et au Pays de Galles (sous le numéro 04444015) dont le siège social est situé au 2nd Floor 33 Queen Street, London, England, EC4R 1AP (« LHi »).

  1. ACCORD : Constituent l’acceptation des présentes conditions par le Client la demande ou l’acceptation d’introductions de la part de LHi, l’entrevue ou l’engagement de Candidats introduits par LHi, la signature des présentes Conditions ou d’une annexe aux présentes Conditions ou tout acte semblable de la part du Client.
  2. COMMISSIONS ET DÉPENSES: Lorsqu’un Candidat est engagé directement par le Client en qualité de salarie en CDI, la commission d’introduction de LHi correspondra à 25% du montant total de la rémunération, comprenant le salaire fixe ou équivalant ainsi que les commissions et primes déterminées ou déterminables de 12 premiers mois de l’engagement du Candidat au moment de son embauche. Concernant les contrats de travails à durée déterminée, la commission que percevra Lhi sera calculée au prorata.

Lorsqu’un Candidat est un entrepreneur et est engagé par le Client sur la base d’un contrat de mission, le Client devra payer les frais énoncés dans le cahier des charges.

Sauf accord contraire, la commission de LHi est acquise et le Client sera tenu de la payer à compter de l’acceptation par le candidat auprès du client d’une offre d’embauche. LHi sera en droit d’établir sa facture à compter de cette date.

La commission de LHi fera l’objet d’un montant minimum de €6,000, hors taxes. Le Client remboursera les dépenses qu’il aura approuvées et qui auront été engagées par LHi en ce qui concerne la prestation de ses services au titre des présentes Conditions.

  1. CAUSE D’ENGAGEMENT : Une introduction par LHi sera réputée être la cause effective de tout engagement négocié, préparé ou qui commencera dans les 12 mois suivant : (i) soit l’introduction la plus récente du Candidat au Client par LHi (ii) soit la communication, l’entrevue, l’offre ou toute autre activité semblable la plus récente découlant de cette introduction (iii) soit, dans le cas d’un employé de LHi, la communication la plus récente du Client avec cette personne.

Si LHi introduit un Candidat qui est déjà en processus de recrutement ou qui est suivi activement par le Client pour le recruter et si ce dernier en informe LHi dans les 3 jours ouvrés qui suivent son introduction, le Client ne sera alors pas redevable de la commission à LHi au cas où le Client engagerait ce Candidat. Le Client devra fournir, sur demande, les documents prouvant cette relation active et son objectif de recrutement.

  1. REMPLACEMENTS & REMISES : Si l’engagement à un emploi permanent d’un Candidat introduit aux termes du présent accord est résilié par l’une des deux parties dans les 8 semaines qui suivent le début de son contrat, en ce cas LHi s’efforcera d’introduire un remplacement dans les 12 semaines, sans aucun frais supplémentaires. Ceci sous réserve que le Client fasse tous ses efforts pour faciliter le remplacement.

Si le remplacement n’a pas été réalisé à l’issue de ce délai, LHi remboursera la commission perçue au Client moins 25 % en ce qui concerne chaque période de 2 semaines (ou partie de celle-ci) de l’engagement du Candidat. Et ceci à concurrence de 8 semaines maximum.

Les remplacements et remises de commissions ne sont strictement pas applicables dans les cas suivants : (i) si le candidat est lui-même un remplacement,(ii) si il a été mis au chômage, licencié sans raison valable ou s’il démissionne du fait que le Client a considérablement modifié les fonctions de son poste ou l’a affecté à un autre poste que celui pour lequel il a été embauché, (iii) si le Client n’avise pas LHi par écrit dans les 5 jours qui suivent la résiliation du contrat de travail ou si le Client ne paie pas, en temps utile, toutes les commissions et dépenses se rapportant à cette introduction.

  1. MODALITÉS DE PAIEMENT : Le Client s’engage à payer toutes les commissions et les dépenses connexes dans les 30 jours qui suivent la date d’acceptation par le candidat. Des intérêts au taux de 5 % par an peuvent être appliqués sur les commissions impayées à leur échéance.

Le Client doit transmettre à LHi un bon de commande ou tout document semblable requis pour le traitement des comptes fournisseurs dans les 30 jours qui suivent la date d’acceptation par le candidat. Si le Client ne le fait pas, LHi est autorisé à facturer le Client sans que le bon de commande, le document requis ou document semblable ne soit joint.

Si le Client soutient qu’aucune ou une moindre commission est due concernant un Candidat introduit par LHi, en ce cas le Client doit payer toute commission non contestée en temps utile et transmettre à LHi les correspondances ou documents permettant d’établir la commission exacte à payer.

  1. CONFIDENTIALITÉ : Aucune partie ne peut utiliser ou divulguer à une tierce personne toute information de l’autre partie qu’elle soit confidentielle ou présumée comme telle. Il s’entend que cette clause s’applique au cours du présent accord et après son expiration.

Sont notamment confidentielles les introductions faites par LHi. Si le Client divulgue à un tiers des détails au sujet d’un Candidat introduit par LHi, et si cela aboutit à un engagement par ce tiers ou par son intermédiaire, le Client devra verser à LHi la commission prévue à la clause 2 du présent Accord comme si le Client avait engagé le Candidat. Dans ces conditions, le Client n’aura aucun droit à une garantie de remplacement ou de remboursement au prorata.

LHi a le droit et la licence d’utiliser le nom et le logo du Client dans tout document de marketing et LHi a le droit et la licence d’utiliser, aux mêmes fins, les témoignages d’appréciation et autres déclarations écrites du Client. 

  1. DÉNI DE RESPONSABILITÉ : LHi fait des efforts pour s’assurer de l’exactitude des informations transmises au sujet d’un Candidat. Toutefois, LHi ne garantit ni le fait que ces introductions seront fructueuses, ni l’exactitude de ces informations, ni la qualité de la prestation de services du Candidat. Ainsi, LHi décline toute obligation concernant les réclamations, pertes ou responsabilités découlant d’une inexactitude, de ses actes ou omissions. Le Client doit faire les recherches qu’il juge nécessaires pour (i) vérifier les informations sur le Candidat, (ii) obtenir toute autre information qu’il juge pertinente et acquérir le droit contractuel de faire valoir directement auprès de LHi ses droits en ce qui concerne les actes ou les omissions d’un Candidat.
  2. PRESTATAIRE INDÉPENDANT : Les services fournis aux termes du présent accord sont fournis en qualité de Prestataire indépendant. Aucune disposition du présent accord ne peut être interprétée comme établissant, entre les parties, une relation de principal et d’agent, de coentrepreneurs, de partenaires ou d’employeur et d’employé.
  3. CESSION : Le présent accord et toutes ses dispositions lient LHi, le Client, leurs successeurs et ayants droit respectifs et s’appliquent à leur bénéfice.

Les parties doivent fournir les informations et les documents qui pourraient être raisonnablement requis par l’autre pour que celle-ci soit en mesure de s’acquitter de ses obligations sur le plan juridique.

  1. DROITS DES TIERS : Toute personne qui n’est pas une partie au présent accord ne détient aucun droit de faire valoir une disposition quelconque du présent Accord au regard de la Loi de 1999 sur les contrats (droits des tiers) [Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999].
  2. NON-SOLLICITATION/NÉGOCIATION : Le Client ne doit pas, que ce soit au cours du présent Accord ou dans les 12 mois suivant son expiration, sauf par le biais ou avec le consentement écrit préalable de LHi, directement ou indirectement, en quelque qualité que ce soit (qu’il s’agisse d’une tentative ou d’un acte effectif) d’engager, faire engager, négocier ou faire négocier avec un employé ou un cadre de LHi ou avec toute personne ayant tenu un tel poste au cours des 12 mois qui précèdent immédiatement cet acte ou cette tentative, que cette personne commette ou non de ce fait une violation de son contrat de travail ou d’engagement avec LHi.

  5. LOI APPLICABLE ET JURIDICTION : Le présent accord et tout litige qui est imputable ou lié au présent accord, à son objet ou à sa formation (y compris les litiges ou les revendications de nature non-contractuelle) sont régis par le droit anglais et gallois.
