Allbairns Ltd acts as an introduction and booking agent only and does not directly or indirectly employ sitters. Sitters are always employed by the client and are under the supervision, direction and control of the client.If a sit takes place in any other location than the client’s own home, it is the client’s responsibility to ensure that all terms and conditions are met.
Clients must make all bookings through Allbairns. Private arrangements between clients and sitters are not allowed. Clients and sitters will be removed from the Agency list if they arrange bookings without informing Allbairns.
While Allbairns endeavours to introduce only reliable sitters who have a DBS Disclosure and Barring Service Check/CRB Criminal Records Bureau Check and references checked and verified, the final decision whether or not to accept the sitter lies only with the client. Allbairns cannot under any circumstances accept responsibility or liability for the acts and omissions of sitters introduced or for any loss, expense, injury or damage arising for any reason therefrom.
Allbairns cannot accept any responsibility if sitters are asked to transport children in their own car. This is an agreement made between the client and the sitter and is not encouraged by Allbairns. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that the transport is safe, suitable, properly insured and that any necessary car seats are provided.
No responsibility or liability whatsoever can be accepted by Allbairns, its directors, employees and associates for any costs, claims, damages, losses, expenses, injuries or liabilities whatsoever or howsoever caused to the client or any relative or associate of the client or their property arising during employment of a sitter.
