  • Similar to other ASA model contracts, the health care staffing model agreement is based on the principle of “Whose business is it?”—that each party is responsible for the risks associated with its own business, and that each party has a duty to indemnify the other only for those risks. This agreement also addresses health care staffing firms’ needs—it includes a list of documents to maintain for each assigned employee and the types and limits of insurance the staffing firm will carry. The agreement also contains alternative language for traveler positions. Additionally, the sector agreement includes optional provisions for investigation of Medicare or Medicaid fraud, cancellations, and minimum hours per week. More ›

    This language is designed to be incorporated into an employee’s time sheet. It contains abbreviated responsibility lists and a waiver of extraordinary types of damage recoveries, but does not contain an express indemnity clause, which could be added. The time sheet language can serve as a stand-alone agreement in situations where no formal written agreement is used and may be used in conjunction with the General Staffing Agreement. More ›
