Quality Control: For everyone’s protection and clear understanding, affiliates must execute contracts with every client. Contracts must include the following: 1). Clients will rate the faith leader on her/his United Faith Leader (UFL) profile within two weeks after every service/event. In the event of a wedding, this includes both spouses (two separate ratings). The faith leader will provide the url on the contract. 2.) The total fee the client agrees to pay the affiliate. The stipulation that half the fee is due with the contract and the second half is due one week before the service/event. 3.) Clients should request, and faith leaders must provide, proof of any claimed credentials. UFL does not evaluate faith leaders credentials. 4.) The affiliate’s liability is restricted to the amount of the fee. 5.) United Faith Leaders is the referring agency and has no liability for its independent faith leaders.

Professional & Personable Conduct:
Being hired as a faith leader is our opportunity to provide positive experiences and build relationships. Affiliates will conduct themselves as guests invited into important times. Affiliates agree that converting others to their beliefs is not their objective. At the same time, affiliates agree not to deny their own faith beliefs.

Authorized to Serve:
The faith leader attests she/he is authorized to perform the services for which she/he contracts with clients. Our faith leaders attest each is in good standing with their (non)religious organizations and have discussed any prior criminal record to the satisfaction of a UFL executive. Any legal convictions or pending judgments must be discussed with an executive at UFL and will be evaluated on a case by case basis. UFL reserves the right to conduct inquiries to verify the integrity of UFL values are being upheld.
Those receiving referrals or purchasing memberships are not employees.

Referral Integrity:
If a faith leader cannot fulfill a client’s requests for any reason the request should be directed back to UFL whenever possible.

It is common for new clients to be met while serving current clients. Being seen doing good work brings new requests. When new clients are met serving current clients they remain a consequence of UFL. Whether new clients use the website or not, they must be treated as “a result of UFL” and UFL will receive referral fees according to these terms and conditions. As an ethical matter, every effort should be made to include UFL for connections that UFL facilitates.

Referral Fees:
When a faith leader is hired for $100 or more, the client pays the faith leader and the faith leader pays UFL as follows. For each major event or service ($100 or higher) performed UFL will receive a flat $20 referral fee. A minor event or service (under $100) requires no referral fee to UFL. A $100 referral fee is to be paid to United Faith Leaders when an affiliate is hired to a permanent part time position (less than 30 hours per week). A $200 referral fee is to be paid to United Faith Leaders when an affiliate is hired to a permanent full time position (30 hours or more per week). Interim positions are considered permanent.
Payments should be made in full to United Faith Leaders within one week of the event or hire date. Payments can be made online through the Faith Leader Dashboard. Checks may be mailed to “United Faith Leaders, 8040 Villa Park Drive, Suite 250, Richmond VA 23228.”

Discipline:
Failure to uphold these terms or UFL values will result in decreased or discontinued referrals, termination, or legal action.
By sustaining any affiliation with United Faith Leaders (profile, membership, etc.) every faith leader agrees to the terms of this contract.
