Use of the Adia online platform is free of charge for all Users.
REGISTERING AS A CANDIDATE
Anyone looking for temporary employment must register as a Candidate and be resident in the UK. If you are under 18 please use the Adia Support Helpline for alternative registration options.
The Candidate confirms that he has registered as a Candidate of my own free will. By registering, the Candidate confirms that he (i) has the necessary documents and authorisations to work in the UK, (ii) will upload them as part of the registration but in any event prior to acceptance of a role/shift and (iii) has disclosed any applicable restrictions on his right to work in the UK.
By registering on Adia, the Candidate confirms that he authorises Adia to take up references and to give its clients information relating to his employment details or his registration information.
The Candidate confirms that the information he provided during his registration with Adia is true and correct. In the event that any of this information changes, it is the Candidate’s responsibility to inform Adia immediately. The Candidate authorises Adia to use his registered details and documents provided as part of registration for any relevant position or positions similar to those he is looking for.
All documents required by the Candidate must be available to the Candidate at the time of registration, and ATL is entitled at all times to request missing or expired documents. If the Candidate does not comply immediately with such request, ATL is entitled to immediately block access by the Candidate to Adia and immediately terminate any assignments with the Candidate. Any other rights of ATL in the event of missing or incorrect information, in particular claims for damages, are reserved.
KEEPING USERNAMES AND PASSWORDS SAFEAdia usernames and passwords created by the Candidates during the registration process must be kept safe and not shared with third parties. If the username and password fall into the hands of a third party, ATL must be informed immediately. The Candidate is accountable for the actions of unauthorised third parties, as well as for his own actions.
CONTRACTS WITH CANDIDATES
Notwithstanding the foregoing, where a Candidate is already directly engaged by the Client (“Client Pool Candidate”), he will have his own contract with a Client which will govern the terms of the assignment except where the Client Pool Candidate wishes to accept additional assignments via Adia with different Clients in which casethe Framework Contract will apply.
Once a Candidate accepts an assignment on Adia with a Client (regardless of whether they are engaged by ATL or the Client ), an Assignment Contract setting out the conditions of that assignment will be generated by Adia. A new Assignment Contract will be generated for all subsequent assignments with the same or a different Client.
The Assignment contract will be created automatically by Adia and signed electronically by ATL. The Candidate undertakes to sign all the contract documents legally. This can be done by an electronic signature. In any event, the Candidate undertakes to send to ATL a legally signed original copy of each contract document.
In the event that a Candidate (who is being engaged by ATL) fails to return a signed copy of the Framework Contract or any Candidate fails to return the signed Assignment Contract, attending an assignment at a Client site or shift location shall be deemed to be acceptance of the Framework Contract (where applicable) and the relevant Assignment Contract.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, ATL reserves the right to withhold payment to the Candidate until such documents are duly signed by the Candidate and returned to ATL.
TIME RECORDINGAdia provides a time recording functionality for each Candidate assignment. As soon as the Candidate arrives at the agreed place of work, he will be able to check-in to the assignment via Adia. Before leaving the place of work again, the Candidate must check out from the assignment via Adia. The Client can verify this information about the check-in and check-out from the assignment, and it can then confirm or correct the information provided by the Candidate and approve the time worked. If the Candidate is unable to check-in and/or check-out on arrival and departure at the assignment, he can do so at a later date but should do so as soon as possible thereafter. Alternatively the Client can complete the check-in and check-out for the Candidate.
ASSESSMENT AT THE END OF THE ASSIGNMENT
After the end of each assignment, both the Candidate and the Client are invited to assess each other. All assessments must be done carefully, conscientiously and according to the criteria laid down by Adia.
Ratings are based on star ratings of 1-5 with 5 stars being highest and are purely the decision of the Candidate or Client as applicable with no input from ATL.
GENERAL OBLIGATIONS OF CANDIDATES

Any changes to the information provided must be updated immediately via Adia or the Adia Support Helpline.
