The Contract System
The Contract System is most commonly used for on-call, or occasional hours, or for part-time or short-term situations, but can also be utilized for regular ongoing full-time service. It is more convenient for the client, as you pay Cardinal to take care of the wages and remittances, and all paperwork involved. You will still receive a receipt for tax purposes. A weekly or monthly cost can be determined based on individual circumstances. Please call us to discuss your needs.
You will pay a registration fee of $50.00 and sign a contract that entitles you to use the service when required and have access to the back-up service. There is a flat hourly rate that you will be billed bi-weekly.
