a) Collaboration is solely by and between Emily's Personnel Service and the Homeowner and can take place via email, phone, or any other mean proposed.
b) While this agreement is in effect, the Homeowner is not allowed to directly hire (directly pay) or work with the housekeeper provided unless the Homeowner pays an exit fee (see paragraph d).
c) After the Homeowner has ended its collaboration with Emily's Personnel Service the Homeowner is not allowed to directly hire or work with the Housekeeper without written consent from Emily's Personnel Service. In the alternative, if Homeowner fails to seek written consent then Homeowner shall not directly hire or work with housekeeper prior to the expiration of one year from the date this Agreement. In either event, the exit fee described in paragraph (d) below is expected to be paid in a timely fashion.
d) The Homeowner may also pay an exit fee of $1,750.00 to Emily's Personnel Service after six months of services are provided if the Homeowner wants to hire and work with the human resource directly ($1,750.00 per Housekeeper). Once the Homeowner has paid the exit fee, Emily's Personnel Service will no longer be responsible for monitoring and managing the Housekeeper, including, but not limited to, scheduling, information security, quality of services and any other act pertaining to the daily work duties of Housekeeper.
f) If Homeowner fails to pay the above-described exit fee, then Emily's shall reserve the right to pursue a claim for damages. Both parties acknowledge the difficulty of calculating damages under this non-compete clause. As such, both parties agree that in the event of any violations, Emily's Personnel Service will be entitled to liquidated damages of $10,000, set for the purpose of discouraging violations, which liquidated damages are to be awarded in favor of Emily's Personnel Service and against Homeowner.
