Object and acceptance
Valjob specialises in the placement of personnel and the provision of services and possesses all the authorisations necessary to execute these activities.
Through its Website, Valjob provides you with an online internet service that publishes temporary job offers for its user companies and employment requests of candidates. The Website enables candidates to define their individual profile which can, if they wish, contain personal information and which can, with their agreement, be distributed all or in part to the user company.
The information that you publish on the Website, and of which you are at the origin, is done so under your sole responsibility. Valjob may also publish advertising provided by announcers on the Website.
The use of the Website is free of charge for the candidates and user companies that employ these services.
These ToU are deemed to be accepted when the user accesses the Website. The user expressly accepts these ToU by ticking the box provided for this purpose when signing up as an employing company or as an candidate. The provisions of these ToU do not only apply to the use of the Website, but are an integral part of any contractual relationship with Valjob.
Website use and access
You acknowledge and voluntarily and expressly accept that the use of the Website is performed under your sole and exclusive responsibility.
The services are accessible, on condition of the restrictions provided for on the Website:
To any physical person who disposes of the full legal capacity to commit to these ToU. A physical person who does not dispose of the full legal capacity may only access the Website and the services with the agreement of their legal representative.
To any legal person acting via the intermediary of a physical person disposing of the legal capacity to contract in the name of and on behalf of the legal person.
The user is informed and accepts that the information entered when registering is exact and up to date and that it is valid proof of identity. By this fact, providing incorrect, incomplete or expired information will entail by full rights a refusal to access the services by Valjob and will nullify the user’s registration.
Access to the account is protected by a username and a password chosen by the user when registering. The user is then responsible for the use made of their account, which they undertake to use personally. Should the account be used by a third party, Valjob cannot be held liable for the actions of the said third party and full responsibility is incumbent on the user.
The user shall provide exact information, which they undertake to immediately update in case of modification. In case of the breach of these ToU, Valjob reserves the right to suspend the use of services and access to the Website by the user without prior notification. The user may then contest this decision by email sent to email@example.com, the decision remaining at the entire discretion of Valjob.
When using the Website, you undertake to refrain from any act that may harm our image, our interests or our rights as well as any act that may damage, render unusable or overload the Website, or prevent, in any manner whatsoever, the normal use of the Website by other users. Valjob reserves the right at any time and at its sole discretion to refuse access to a user of the Website, notably if the reputation of Valjob is threatened.
We implement reasonable and appropriate security measures to detect the presence of viruses. Nevertheless, we draw your attention to the fact that the existing security measures intended to protect computer systems on the internet are not entirely reliable and that we are therefore not able to guarantee the absence of viruses or any other element that may cause alterations to your computer systems (hardware and software) or to the data and files that they contain.
Provisions relating to candidates
Any user who registers on the Website as an candidate is personally responsible for obtaining the documents and necessary authorisation to work in Switzerland. By accepting an assignment, the candidate also confirms that they possess a Swiss passport, a C settlement permit or a valid work permit at the time of the assignment. If Valjob observes that, contrary to the indications supplied, the above conditions are not fulfilled, it will immediately exclude the candidate and shall inform the competent authorities. Any change, including the withdrawal or non-extension of the work permit, must be communicated immediately to Valjob. If the employee fails in this duty of information or is present at work without a valid work permit, Valjob reserves the right to make a claim for damages resulting from the breach of these provisions.
Provisions relating to user companies
Any user who registers as an employing company on the Website must have its head office in Switzerland. The company shall also undertake to observe and comply with all the collective labour agreements applicable to its business. The company is required to comply with all the provisions of labour legislation, the provisions of the law regarding the protection of data and the laws applicable to its business, and guarantees that it has all the necessary permissions for the exercise of its activity.
The companies using Valjob services that create a user account and thus dispose of a password may allow several persons belonging to the company to use their account and password.
However, Valjob cannot be held responsible for any multiple use that may be made of this account and the password by several persons belonging to the user company. It is the responsibility of the user company to maintain the confidentiality of the account and the password.
When opening the user account, the user company must designate “a referent person” who will be responsible for the use of the account and the password.
Should the user company and/or the referent person allow several persons belonging to the company to use its account and its password, the user company and/or the referent person shall be solely responsible for the use made by these persons of the account and the password.
In any case, it is forbidden for the user company to share, even temporarily, the user account and its password and any other parameter(s) of access with third parties. To this effect, you shall undertake to inform Valjob, without delay, of any unauthorised use of your account and/or password.
If you terminate your user account or one or several offers of employment, you acknowledge and agree that all your information associated with your user account or with one or several offers of employment, including the registered profiles, network contacts and email lists will be deleted from the Valjob database. The processing time required for the request for deletion may nevertheless leave data to remain for a certain amount of time.
User companies are solely responsible for the employment offers they publish on the Website.
Valjob may in no case be assimilated to a recruiter, an employer or a representative of the latter with respect to the offers of employment published on the Website by a user company and its use of Valjob services before the signing of the Labour Supply Contract by the user company. Therefore, Valjob has no performance obligation with respect to the response that may be given to your offers of employment.

Hypertext links, other than those expressly authorised by Valjob;
“Hidden” keywords that may mislead or be illegible, repetitive keywords or keywords that bear no relationship to the offer of employment published;
The names, logos or trademarks of companies other than yours or those authorised by Valjob;
The names of schools or institutions, cities, departments, regions or countries that bear no link with the offer;
More than one offer or description, more than one location, or more than one category, unless the product allows it;
Incorrect, false or erroneous data;
Elements or links to elements of a sexual, violent or abusive nature or which solicit personal data from persons under the age of 16.
It is prohibited to use Valjob services to:
Publish offers of employment that do not comply with the laws and regulations in force in the country of publication of the offer or in any other country, notably concerning labour law, equal opportunities and the qualifications related to employment, the protection of information, access to and the use of personal data as well as intellectual property;
Publish offers of employment requiring a particular nationality or permanent residence in a country as a condition of employment, unless such a condition is required by the law or regulations in force;
Publish “discriminatory” offers of employment and/or those that impose controls or specific criteria for access to the employment that are not are legally required;

Promote a party, a programme, a position or a political topic;
Promote a religion;
Publish offers of employment requiring candidates to provide data relating to their ethnic or racial background, political beliefs, philosophical or religious beliefs, membership in a trade union, their physical or mental health, their sexual orientation, their judicial history (unless this is authorised by law), or their age.
Valjob reserves, at its sole discretion, the right to delete any offer of employment and/or content published on the Website which is non-compliant with the ToU or whose content may harm Valjob or users of Valjob.
For the establishment of the labour supply contract, the offer of employment published by the user company by electronic means must specify:
The date of the beginning of the assignment and its end date or minimum duration;
The specific characteristics of the position to be filled, and whether the position figures on the list of jobs involving risk;
The professional qualification required, as well as the nature of the personal protective equipment that the temporary personnel will use (their provision being, unless provided for by collective agreement, under the responsibility of the user company, which must also ensure their proper use);
The place of work;
The factor(s) of arduous work to which the temporary personnel will be exposed during their assignment.
