There are several important provisions that should be defined in each referral agreement. 5. These recommendation conditions begin from the date: the company confirms the recommendation partner`s participation as a referral partner in an email containing the recommendation partner`s unique recommendation link and continues until the previous date (a) of termination by one of the parties who received a 7-day written notification (including e-mail) or b) immediately after notification to the recommendation partner , if the recommendation partner contains the terms of these recommendation conditions or applicable legislation or regulations. In the event of termination in accordance with this section 5 (a), the Recommendation Partner`s Recommendation Link remains active for 5 business days (and the recommendation partner has the right to obtain a referral fee for offers generated from such a referral link), after that period, the referral partner is not entitled to an additional referral fee. , whether or not such a Lead requests an offer of the recommendation link from the referral partner. One of the concerns of many companies that offer recommendations is that the other company will not tell you if one of your customers hires them and that you will not receive a referral fee at the end. This is a legitimate concern that can be addressed in your recommendation agreement. The benefits of a written referral agreement are simple.

This is particularly valuable if relations between the parties will one day sour. A removal agreement is an agreement used to define the mechanisms of a removal relationship and to protect the interests of both parties.
