Registering as an Event Organizer.
In creating an account on the Website, You must select a user name and password to log in and out of your profile.
You may add optional information to Your profile such as Your experience as an event
organizer and the types of events You typically organize. This information will be stored in
accordance with our
which You should read carefully before providing any personal information through the Website and Service.
How the Service Works.
After you register on the Website and create a user account, You will be able to search for and send requests
to Event Staff to work at your Event. You may use the drop down menu to search for and select individuals
with particular positions (i.e. Waitstaff, Bartender, etc.). You may also select an Event Staff to act as
supervisor for Your Event (
). The Supervisor is an Event Staff who acts as the main liaison between the Event Organizer and Event Staff
hired to work for the Event. You may select the minimum star rating you desire for each selected position,
thereby eliminating Event Staff with lower star ratings from seeing these Events. You are required to input
an hourly wage You wish to pay each Event Staff (for each position and timeslot you select). You may also select
the attire You wish Event Staff to bring to the Event. Additional shift information such as the meeting spot,
contact name and number, and Event details are also required.
Fees and Cancellations.
In order to use the Service, You must pay the transaction fee of 20% (included in the in the total hourly wage
that you select for each position and timeslot). You are required to input your credit card details 48 hours
prior to the scheduled time of the Event. After the Event, You are required to log into your profile and
verify the hours worked for each Event Staff and You will receive an invoice. Once You confirm this invoice,
your credit card will be charged. If the Event is cancelled less than 48 hours before the scheduled time of
the Event, You will be charged a cancellation fee equal to 4 hours of pay for each Event Staff
confirmed for that Event.
For all events with over 10 shifts booked (i.e. timeslots), the
cancellation timeframe increases by one week for every 10 shifts (i.e. 40 shifts booked,
4 weeks notice is needed). For all events with over 50 shifts booked (i.e. timeslots), a
50% deposit is required at the time of booking.
Event Staff who indicate that they have special expertise (i.e. Kosher style) go through a basic screening
process before they join the Website consisting of a brief online test designed to confirm such expertise.
However, it is Your sole responsibility to verify whether the qualifications and expertise of any particular
Event Staff You select to work at Your Event meets your requirements. You may do this through asking
questions or requesting certifications directly from the Event Staff at the time of Your Event.
We only facilitate the engagement of Event Organizers with Event Staff and we do not and cannot
endorse any services offered by Event Staff. We also cannot oversee the Event Staff or the Events.
You therefore acknowledge and agree that if You elect to engage with any Event Staff, such dealings
are solely between You and the Event Staff and Hyre shall not have any responsibility or liability for
any losses or damages that You may incur as a result of any such dealings.
Disputes and Complaints.
If You are dissatisfied with an Event Staff, You will have 48 hours after an Event has taken place to lodge a
formal complaint with us by emailing
which will enable You to record Your complaint and transmit it to us. We will try to resolve any dispute
which relates to non-attendance by the Event Staff or any abusive or seriously unprofessional conduct by
the Event Staff during the Event. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to resolve disputes and
provide an outcome within 14 days of Your submitting Your complaint.
