Addendum Regarding Continuous Healthcare Monitoring

 

This Addendum is made to the Client Agreementdated (“the Agreement”) between (“Client”) andSapphire Check LLC (“Sapphire Check”).

WHEREAS, Sapphire Check is providing or will provide background screening services to Client;

WHEREAS, Client now wishes to engage Sapphire Check to perform continuous monitoring of certain designated employees for purposes of determining whether they have encountered one or more of the following: new medical sanctions or new governmental exclusions(“Continuous Monitoring”);

WHEREAS, Sapphire Check will return to Client information found about designated employers via Continuous Monitoring in the form of “consumer reports” (as defined by the Fair Credit Reporting Act)(“Reports”); and

WHEREAS, Sapphire Check and Client wish to further define the terms by which continuous Monitoring services and reports shall be ordered by and provided to Client;

NOW, THEREFORE, the parties hereby agree as follows:

  1. Scope of Continuous Monitoring Services. Sapphire Check shall seek out and deliver information consistent with the Continuous Monitoring service descriptions set forth on its website. Sapphire Check shall provide Continuous Monitoring Reports when relevant information related to a designated employee within the scope of the order has been uncovered. In general, such Reports shall be provided within five days of Sapphire Check receiving notification of potentially relevant information.  However, the Client understands that Sapphire Check cannot and does not make any guarantee related to turn-around time and that numerous factors can affect the exact turn-around time for a particular Report.  The client understands and agrees that it will not receive information that Sapphire Check may not have uncovered (due to limitations on public record access, system limitations, or other impediments) or information that Sapphire Check determines—in its sole discretion—to be unreportable under applicable law.

 

  1. Accurate Roster Of Employees. The client agrees that it shall only request Continuous Monitoring on individuals who remain Client’s employees, who have received appropriate legal disclosures, who have signed appropriate consent paperwork, and who are otherwise legally eligible to be subject to Continuous Monitoring. The client shall initially provide Sapphire Check a roster of employees subject to Continuous Monitoring.  Client shall immediately alert Sapphire Check if an individual on the roster separates from employment with Client, if an individual is no longer legally eligible for Continuous Monitoring, or if it otherwise has reason to modify its roster.  The client shall also provide confirmation of the active employment status of all individuals subject to Continuous Monitoring upon request by Sapphire Check. 

 

  1. Compliance With Applicable Laws. The client shall comply with all applicable federal, state, and local laws that relate in any manner to the Continuous Monitoring services being ordered, including but not limited to the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Among other things, the Client shall only request Continuous Monitoring when legally permitted to do so.  In addition, the Client shall comply with all federal, state, and local laws related to potential or actual adverse action against individuals based upon Continuous Monitoring Reports provided by Sapphire Check.  The client agrees that all certifications made regarding “Reports” in the Agreement apply equally to the Continuous Monitoring Reports described in this Addendum.

 

  1. In addition to any indemnification obligation set forth in the Agreement, Client shall indemnify and hold harmless Sapphire Check, its affiliates, and subsidiaries and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, and insurers from and against any and all damages, penalties, losses, liabilities, judgments, settlements, awards, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) arising out of or in connection with any claims, assertions, demands, causes of action, suits, proceedings or other actions, whether at law or in equity related to (i) any breach by Client of this Addendum, (ii) Client’s violation of applicable laws or ordinances related to Continuous Monitoring and/or the services described in this addendum, (iii) Client’s negligence, misconduct, recklessness, errors or omissions related in any manner to Continuous Monitoring or the services described in this Addendum.

 

  1. Either party may terminate this Addendum at any time, for any reason or no reason, by providing written notice to the other party. Upon termination of this Addendum, Client shall not receive any Continuous Monitoring services or Reports of any kind. Upon termination of this Addendum, the Client Agreement shall otherwise remain fully in effect. In addition, the Client’s indemnification obligation under Paragraph 4 above shall survive termination of this Addendum.

 

  1. Full Force and Effect. Except as specifically stated in this Addendum, the Agreement is not modified, revoked, or superseded and remains in full force and effect. This Addendum and the Agreement are generally intended to be read together and interpreted as a whole. To the extent an unavoidable conflict exists between this Addendum and the Agreement, this Addendum shall control as matters related to Continuous Monitoring.
