This fulfilment Service Level Agreement (SLA) describes the terms and conditions that apply to Gigable’s commitment in respect of the fulfilment of posted gigs under the subscription model of the Gigable platform.
This SLA covers all aspects of gig fulfilment.
The terms and conditions outlined in this SLA are additional to and must be read in conjunction with Gigable’s TERMS OF SERVICE.
To the extent of any inconsistency between the terms in this SLA and Gigable terms as set out in the TERMS OF SERVICE the terms in the SLA will prevail.
Gigable are committed to creating a platform where the minimum expectation of the hourly rate for Freelancers is in-line with the National Living Wage as defined by the UK Government 2023 UK GOV National Living Wage.
Gig Owners agree to pay a Freelancer the gig hourly rate plus any further agreed enhancements as defined in the posted Gig. Gig Owners agree if the final rate of hourly payment to the Freelancer falls below the National Living Wage, the Gig Owner agrees to pay the Freelancer a minimum of the National Living Wage hourly rate.
Please note that it is important that the living wage commitment is not deemed to be the rate of pay that must be paid to the Freelancer per hour. It is rather a minimum rate of pay being committed to by the Gig Owner. If the final pay per hour, per the advertised rates of pay on the gig, exceeds the living wage, the Gig Owner must commit to paying the amount owed as advertised, as opposed to the minimum living wage amount.
Gigable agree to meet a fulfilment level of 85% on a monthly basis.
(One month is calculated on the Gig Owners billing period).
If the Gig Owners posted gig fulfilment levels falls below Gigable’s high standard the Gig Owner is entitled to compensation (refund) equal to 1 (one) month subscription value (monthly cost) as defined in the signed TERMS OF SERVICE agreement.
For the avoidance of doubt this SLA covers the fulfilment of gigs which meet the following criteria.
a. Gigs posted with at least 72 hours prior to the Gig start time.
b. Gigs starting no earlier than 7am and finishing no later than 11pm.
c. Gigs must have the ‘Instant Accept’ feature enabled for the entire time the gig is posted.
d. Valid for billing period (month) when gig Owners have posted a minimum of 30 gigs.
e. Merchants agree the minimum final hourly payment rate made to Freelancers meets or supersedes the National Living Wage.
f. Gig Owners agree only gigs where the Gig Owner has enabled the "Living Wage" minimum payment feature will be considered under this SLA.
g. After the GA (General Availability) release of the “Living Wage” feature, all gigs posted on the platform must have this living wage feature enabled for the duration of the posted gig for the gigs to be considered as part of this SLA.
