I think an employer behaved badly to a headhunter on our marketplace. We're kicking the employer off the site. Question - Are we right to think this is shoddy behavior or should we just roll over and accept it?
Short story: an agribusiness employer posted a job looking for a full time position on our marketplace and offered a 20% bounty. A recruiter (damn good one) brought them a candidate whom they interviewed, liked and decided to hire – but on a 3 month contract. The employer has told the HH they don’t owe them a penny – because the bounty offered was for an “employee” and they ended up hiring them only as a “contractor”. This is the only time this has happened to us, but we feel we need to defend the HH. The legal terms are clearly on our side and recruiters (rightfully) insist that we only have employers that are partners.
Despite the fact they are a healthy source of jobs, I think we have no choice. However in our 3 years this is the first time I have seen this.
