Last updated February 18, 2020
These Terms contain an Arbitration Agreement, which will, with limited exception, require a user to submit claims against us to binding and final arbitration. A site user who does not wish to agree to arbitration must opt out of arbitration within 30 days after the date the user accepts these terms for the first time. Failure to opt out means in part that: (1) you will only be permitted to pursue claims against MyCNAjobs in arbitration on an individual basis, not as a plaintiff or class member in any class or representative action or proceeding, and (2) you will only be permitted to seek relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) on an individual basis. If you do not opt out of arbitration both you and MyCNAjobs consent to arbitration of covered claims.
2. The Site Offers a Venue. MyCNAjobs operates a website located at www.mycnajobs.com (the "Site") which offers a venue to connect employers (those seeking care services) with individuals seeking to provide care services. In addition, MyCNAjobs may in the future launch and/or operate one or more mobile applications providing similar functionality via mobile devices (the "Application"). Neither the Site nor the Application is intended to allow individuals to find care for themselves or loved ones, and use of the Site or Application in that manner is prohibited. User understands and agrees that MyCNAjobs has no control over the acts or omissions of any User or any other party on or off the Site and that MyCNAjobs makes no representations or warranties about the quality of the care services provided by any User or any other party. User understands and agrees that MyCNAjobs is not responsible for the performance or conduct, whether on or off the Site, of any User or other third party. As such, MyCNAjobs expressly disclaims, and each User expressly releases MyCNAjobs from, any and all liability whatsoever for any controversies, claims, suits, injuries and/or damages arising from and/or in any way related to the Site and/or the Application, including without limitation any acts and/or omissions of Users or any other third parties on or off the Site. MyCNAjobs does not warrant—and specifically disclaims—that any applicant appearing on this site or provided from the site and sent directly into an employer applicant tracking system has consented to be called or that their phone number is current and up to date. This venue is being presented on an “as is” basis. Employers, recruiters and any other users of this site are solely responsible for obtaining the permissions necessary under state and federal law to contact any applicant.
3. Transactions Release; Certain Programs. MyCNAjobs expressly disclaims, and each User expressly releases MyCNAjobs from, any and all liability whatsoever for any controversies, claims, suits, injuries and/or damages arising from and/or in any way related to disputes (i) between Users, and (ii) between and/or among Users and any third parties with which any User may enter into a business relationship via the Site and/or Application. MyCNAjobs may, from time to time, offer programs, opportunities and/or other services within the care services industry generally, and User understands, agrees and acknowledges that no such program, opportunity or service shall change the fact that User remains solely responsible for performing its, his or her own due diligence in respect of hiring any individual or obtaining employment within any organization (including, without limitation, ensuring each such individual holds all necessary licenses in good standing). By way of example, and not in limitation of the foregoing, MyCNAjobs offers a service commonly referred to as "Caregivers on Demand" and “Interview Booking” pursuant to which MyCNAjobs will assist potential employers of caregivers in organizing one or more recruiting events or directly booking interviews, promoting such event(s) and assisting in delivering caregivers to such event(s) or interview slots that may be seeking employment opportunities. To this end, MyCNAjobs may communicate directly with potential caregivers and/or perform telephone or other interviews with potential caregivers. User agrees and acknowledges that notwithstanding any such involvement of MyCNAjobs in identifying caregivers and/or promoting any such event to any caregiver(s), Users hosting any such event remain solely responsible for investigating the background of each such potential caregiver, performing interviews with each such potential caregiver and ultimately making all hiring decisions in respect of each such caregiver. MyCNAjobs is not responsible or liable in any way for any claims or damages that may arise out of (a) any potential caregiver falsifying records, (b) any potential caregiver or employer not honoring any agreement it, he or she may have entered into with the other or any other actions taken by any User, or (c) any theft, crime or other action taken by any potential caregiver or employer, whether at a Caregivers on Demand event or any other event or in connection with any service provided or administered by MyCNAjobs. MyCNAjobs makes no representations or warranties to any User or any other party regarding the background, integrity, skill set or capabilities of any employer, caregiver or any other third party. For purposes of clarity, User (i) shall be solely responsible for performing full background checks and otherwise screening all caregivers, and (ii) agrees and acknowledges that MyCNAjobs is not responsible or liable in any way for any actions taken or information provided or omitted by any caregiver. It is the sole responsibility of the User to ensure its employment policies and practices meet state and federal requirements. MyCNAjobs is not responsible for the content of the User’s job descriptions or invitations to interview. MyCNAjobs may make recommendations with respect to content, but it is the sole responsibility of User to ensure its content meets state and federal employment law requirements. Additionally, MyCNAjobs is not responsible for the usage of data or the result of strategies implemented due to the usage of data from reports, webinars, white papers, or other types of learnings shared on the website (including MyCNAjobs and HealthcareReesarch.org), via account reps, or via conferences or webinars.
By using the Site or Application, User understands and agrees that MyCNAjobs may rely on the above Eligibility Conditions representations and warranties, together with all other representations and warranties set forth herein, as true. User understands and agrees that MyCNAjobs may revise the Eligibility Conditions from time to time and require new conditions and certifications and that User will abide by such revised Eligibility Conditions or discontinue using the Site and Application.
User understands and agrees that MyCNAjobs does not independently verify that any or all of the Eligibility Conditions are met by any other Users. User understands and agrees to make its own decisions and assessments about persons to engage, potential employment opportunities and/or any other business relationship which may result from using the Site and/or the Application. If MyCNAjobs becomes aware of violations to the Eligibility Conditions by any User, it may suspend and/or terminate such User's membership with or without notice; provided, that MyCNAjobs shall not, under any set of circumstances, be required to investigate compliance with Eligibility Conditions or otherwise verify the veracity and/or accuracy of any information provided by any User to MyCNAjobs. Each such suspended and/or terminated User agrees to make no further use of the Site after termination or during suspension. Additionally, User agrees that following any suspension or termination of User’s membership, access or account, MyCNAjobs may send a notice to other users with whom MyCNAjobs believes User interacted or corresponded through MyCNAjobs or the public regarding such suspension or termination. MyCNAjobs expressly disclaims, and each User expressly releases MyCNAjobs from, any and all liability whatsoever for any controversies, claims, suits, injuries and/or damages arising from and/or in any way related to: (W) any inaccuracy, untimeliness or incompleteness of a User's Eligibility Conditions; (X) any inaccuracy, untimeliness or incompleteness of information set forth in any the Consumer Report (defined below) or any other report regarding any User; (Y) misstatements and/or misrepresentations made by any Users; and/or (Z) MyCNAjobs making any statement to other users or the public about the suspension or termination of User’s membership, access or account.
User understands and agrees that MyCNAjobs will present User with interview and career opportunities as it sees fit and that MyCNAjobs is under no obligation to do so solely because User has agreed to these terms. User further agrees that MyCNAjobs may at its sole discretion determine that a User is not fit for a particular interview or career opportunity. User understands and agrees that upon failure to appear for four (4) or more interviews within a 3-month period, MyCNAjobs may choose not to book future interviews for User over the following 12-month period.
5. Consumer Reports. MyCNAjobs does not perform background, sex offender registry, nurse aide abuse registry, excluded provider, motor vehicle records, employment verification, identification verification or reference checks on users (collectively “Consumer Reports”), and does not receive or interpret the results of any Consumer Reports on users. It is up to the individual user/employer to perform its own Consumer Report on any potential employee. MyCNAjobs has negotiated a discounted rate for users to obtain certain reference checks performed by SkillSurvey. MyCNAjobs will not review or receive the results of any check performed by SkillSurvey. MyCNAjobs does not endorse or make any representations or warranties regarding the reliability of any check performed by SkillSurvey or the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of any information in a report created by SkillSurvey.
6. Use of the Site and Application. User agrees to use the Site and Application in a manner that is lawful, relevant and proper to the applicable forum. Any use of the Site and/or Application that MyCNAjobs, in its sole discretion, finds inappropriate and/or offensive may result in suspension and/or termination of a User with or without notice. MyCNAjobs reserves the right to suspend and/or terminate any User with or without notice at any time in its sole discretion, for any reason or no reason. Each such suspended and/or terminated User agrees to make no further use of the Site and/or Application after termination or during suspension. User understands and agrees not to, and not to permit or encourage anyone else to:
MyCNAjobs reserves all of its rights under the Communications Decency Act, including without limitation its right to remove anything objectionable to MyCNAjobs in its sole discretion. User may report any alleged improprieties by any User to MyCNAjobs by email at privacy@myCNAjobs.com.
7. Account Security. User is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of passwords and account information for the Site and User is fully responsible for all activities that occur under User's account. User agrees to immediately notify MyCNAjobs of any unauthorized use of accounts or any other breach of security. User shall be solely responsible for maintaining all user names and passwords provided to User.
9. COPPA Compliance. Each of the Site and the Application is intended for people 18 and older. MyCNAjobs will not knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13. MyCNAjobs expressly disclaims, and each User expressly releases MyCNAjobs from, any and all liability whatsoever for any controversies, claims, suits, injuries and/or damages, arising from and/or in any way related to any misrepresentations regarding the age of any User. MyCNAjobs reserves the right to suspend and/or terminate with or without notice the membership of any User who it believes has provided false information when registering for and/or using the Site and/or Application and each User agrees to make no further use of the Site or Application after termination and/or during suspension.
User represents and warrants that it is the owner or licensee or otherwise has the right to disclose such User Information and, in exchange for being permitted to use the Site and/or Application, User grants to MyCNAjobs an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, fully-paid, world-wide, transferable, sub-licensable license to use, copy, perform, display, reproduce, adapt, modify, and distribute such User Information and to prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works and to grant sublicenses to any of the above.
User, by accepting this Agreement and/or making any use of the Site or MyCNAjobs services, hereby (i) agrees and acknowledges that any information, content or data submitted by User to MyCNAjobs or otherwise input into the Site or any MyCNAjobs software platform, including without limitation, first and last name, e-mail and resume data (collectively, "Submitted Information"), may be used by MyCNAjobs to perform services and/or to send commercial and/or other types of e-mail to User in connection with providing MyCNAjobs services and/or advertising other products or services to User, (ii) agrees and acknowledges that Submitted Information may also be provided or sold to third parties to either assist MyCNAjobs in providing services to User or to allow any such third party to either send commercial and/or advertising e-mails to User or to assist third party advertisers in sending commercial and/or advertising e-mails and/or promotions to User, and (iii) consents and opts-in to receiving commercial emails from MyCNAjobs and to the transfer by MyCNAjobs of any such commercial emailing rights to one or more third parties to allow such third parties to send promotional, commercial and/or advertising e-mails or other communications to User. User may, at any time, elect to revoke the above-described consent and opt-in by sending an e-mail to privacy@myCNAjobs.com and including "Opt Out" in the Subject line. MyCNAjobs is not responsible for the usage of data or the result of strategies implemented due to the usage of data.
11. Prohibited Uses. Neither the Site nor the Application may be used by any individual that is not associated with or seeking to become associated with a company or organization that engages, or intends to engage, care providers, either in-home or through a separate facility. MyCNAjobs is not intended for personal use.
12. Billing and Payment Policy. You agree to pay to MyCNAjobs any fees for each product or service you purchase or use, in accordance with the pricing and payment terms in your Agreement. Similarly, if you elect to use the discounted services offered by SkillSurvey, you agree to pay MyCNAjobs for those services, a portion of which you understand shall be remitted to SkillSurvey. Services are billed via credit card unless mutually agreed in writing between you and MyCNAjobs. You are responsible for ensuring that the credit card associated with your account is up to date and that you are authorized to use that credit card. MyCNAjobs reserves the right to implement fraud-protection measures including, without limitation, temporarily charging small amounts to your credit card to determine that it is a valid credit card and you are authorized to use it. Fees paid by you are non-refundable, except as provided in these Terms or Use, your Agreement or when required by law. Some of our products are billed on a subscription basis (we call these “Subscriptions”). This means that you will be billed on a recurring, periodic basis (each period is called a “billing cycle”). Some of our services are billed based on the number of booked interviews and the fee outlined in your Agreement. Billing cycles are weekly, monthly or annual, depending on what subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription online or through your Account representative. Your Subscription will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle unless you cancel auto-renewal. You may cancel a non-contractual package within 72 hours notice of your renewal date, in which case your Subscription will continue until the end of that billing cycle before terminating. In the event you are using MyCNAjobs’ ‘Interview Booking’ product, you will pay for the interviews already booked at the time of cancel. All cancel notifications must be sent in writing via email to your Account Representative. Subscriptions paid monthly or subscriptions paid annually with a 12-month contractual period can be cancelled in the event of bankruptcy, but cannot be cancelled under any other circumstances. MyCNAjobs may change the fees charged for the services at any time, provided that, for services billed on a subscription basis, the change will become effective only at the end of the contractual period. For services without a contractual agreement, fees can be changed at any time and reasonable notice will be given prior to the implementation of the new fees. Upon registration for a paid subscription or any other purchase at the Site or through the Application, User agrees to pay MyCNAjobs at the prices then in effect, and User authorizes MyCNAjobs to charge its chosen credit card or other payment provider in connection therewith. MyCNAjobs reserves the right to correct any payment errors even if it has already requested and/or received payment. While use of the Site and/or Application may be free for individual care providers, (i) some services, including without limitation reference checks offered by SkillSurvey, may be offered for a fee, and (ii) MyCNAjobs may elect, at its discretion, to begin charging fees for use of various portions of the Site and/or Application.
MyCNAjobs may use third party payment processing services to process credit card information. While MyCNAjobs will use commercially reasonable efforts to protect the privacy of all personal and financial information, MyCNAjobs expressly disclaims any and all liability whatsoever for any controversies, claims, suits, injuries and/or damages, arising from and/or in any way related to MyCNAjobs' use of third party payment processing services, including without limitation for any damage that may result should any such information be released to any third parties. For further information about MyCNAjobs' use of payment processing services, please contact your MyCNAjobs Account Representative and email inquires to privacy@myCNAjobs.com.

29. Arbitration Agreement. Important Note Regarding this Arbitration Agreement:
WHETHER TO AGREE TO ARBITRATION IS AN IMPORTANT DECISION. IT IS YOUR DECISION TO MAKE, AND YOU SHOULD NOT RELY SOLELY UPON THE INFORMATION PROVIDED IN THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AS IT IS NOT INTENDED TO CONTAIN A COMPLETE EXPLANATION OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF ARBITRATION. YOU SHOULD TAKE REASONABLE STEPS TO CONDUCT FURTHER RESEARCH AND TO CONSULT WITH OTHERS – INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO AN ATTORNEY – REGARDING THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR DECISION, JUST AS YOU WOULD WHEN MAKING ANY OTHER IMPORTANT BUSINESS OR LIFE DECISION.
Except as provided in Subsection vi. below, such disputes include without limitation disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of this Arbitration Agreement, including the enforceability, revocability or validity of the Arbitration Agreement or any portion of the Arbitration Agreement. All such matters shall be decided by an arbitrator and not by a court or judge.
Except as it otherwise provides, this Arbitration Agreement also applies, without limitation, to all disputes between you and MyCNAjobs as well as all disputes between you and MyCNAjobs’s fiduciaries, administrators, officers, members, directors, affiliates, subsidiaries, parents, and all successors and assigns of any of them (each of whom is expressly made an intended third party beneficiary of this Agreement), including but not limited to any disputes arising out of or related to this Agreement and disputes, past, present or future, arising out of or related to your relationship with the MyCNAjobs, how that relationship is classified, described or defined in this Agreement, and including termination of the relationship. This Arbitration Agreement also applies, without limitation, to disputes regarding privacy, any city, county, state or federal wage-hour law, trade secrets, unfair competition, compensation, breaks and rest periods, expense reimbursement, termination, harassment and claims arising under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Defend Trade Secrets Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Equal Pay Act, Rehabilitation Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1981, Civil Rights Acts of 1866 and 1871, the Civil Rights Act of 1991, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, Americans With Disabilities Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Family Medical Leave Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, Employee Retirement Income Security Act (except for claims for employee benefits under any benefit plan sponsored by the Company and (a) covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 or (b) funded by insurance), Affordable Care Act, Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act, Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, Older Workers Benefits Protection Act of 1990, Occupational Safety and Health Act, Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985, False Claims Act, state or local statutes or regulations addressing the same or similar subject matters, and all other federal, state or local statutory and legal claims arising out of or relating to your relationship with MyCNAjobs or the termination of that relationship (including without limitation torts and post-termination defamation or retaliation).
This Arbitration Agreement is intended to require arbitration of every claim or dispute that lawfully can be arbitrated, except for those claims and disputes which by the terms of this Arbitration Agreement are expressly excluded from the Arbitration Agreement.
Regardless of any other terms of this Arbitration Agreement, nothing prevents you from making a report to or filing a claim or charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, U.S. Department of Labor, Securities Exchange Commission, National Labor Relations Board, or Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, and nothing in this Agreement or Arbitration Agreement prevents the investigation by a government agency of any report, claim or charge otherwise covered by this Arbitration Agreement.
Nothing in this Arbitration Agreement shall be deemed to preclude or excuse a party from bringing an administrative claim before any agency in order to fulfill the party's obligation to exhaust administrative remedies before making a claim in arbitration.
Disputes that may not be subject to a predispute Arbitration Agreement pursuant to applicable Federal law are excluded from the coverage of this Arbitration Agreement.
A party may apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for temporary or preliminary injunctive relief in connection with an arbitrable controversy in accordance with applicable law, and any such application shall not be deemed incompatible with or waiver of this Arbitration Agreement. The court to which the application is made is authorized to consider the merits of the arbitrable controversy to the extent it deems necessary in making its ruling. All determinations of final relief, however, will be decided in arbitration.
You and MyCNAjobs agree to resolve any dispute that is in arbitration on an individual basis only, and not on a class, collective, consolidated or representative action basis (“Class Action Waiver”). The arbitrator shall have no authority to consider or resolve any claim or issue any relief on any basis other than an individual basis. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Arbitration Agreement or the JAMS Rules, disputes regarding the enforceability, revocability or validity of the Class Action Waiver may be resolved only by a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. In any case in which (1) the dispute is filed as a class, collective, or representative action and (2) there is a final judicial determination that all or part of the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, the class, collective, and/or representative action to that extent must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the portion of the Class Action Waiver that is enforceable shall be enforced in arbitration.
While MyCNAjobs will not take any retaliatory action in response to any exercise of rights you may have under Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act, if any, MyCNAjobs shall not be precluded from moving to enforce its rights under the Federal Arbitration Act to compel arbitration on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.
In order to be effective, the letter under option (2) must clearly indicate your intent to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, and must be dated and signed. The envelope containing the signed letter must be received (if delivered by hand) or post-marked within 30 days of the date this Agreement is executed by you. Your writing opting out of this Arbitration Agreement, whether sent by options (1) or (2), will be filed with a copy of this Agreement and maintained by MyCNAjobs. Should you not opt out of this Arbitration Agreement within the 30-day period, you and MyCNAjobs shall be bound by the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. You have the right to consult with counsel of your choice concerning this Arbitration Agreement. You understand that you will not be subject to retaliation if you exercise your right to assert claims or opt-out of coverage under this Arbitration Agreement.
