FingerCheck is a software application that provides employers with an all-in-one platform through which the employers can manage their employees (the “Software”). The Software, hosted online by FingerCheck and accessible through https://fingercheck.com (the “Site”), includes several separate FingerCheck-provided modules that provide support for (i) hiring, (ii) employee self-onboarding, (iii) payroll, (iv) human resources, (v) time tracking, and (vi) any other functionality that FingerCheck may make available from time to time. Employers may elect to use one, several or all of the FingerCheck modules. Employers also may purchase workers’ compensation insurance through a third party licensed insurance provider (provided through separate and/or additional contract terms and conditions); however, FingerCheck itself does not sell insurance products. The FingerCheck modules described in items (i)-(iv) above (i.e., all modules except for time tracking) are also referred to as “FingerCheck 360”. The services supported by the Software (as described above and in Section 2 below and including, without limitation, any additional services used or received by you from FingerCheck) are referred to as the “FingerCheck Services”.

The FingerCheck Services and the Software are referred to collectively as the “Services”.

1. General Rights of Service

The Software provides a platform to meet the workforce management needs of employers. The FingerCheck Services supported by the Software include the following:

  1. a)Using the human resources module, employers can streamline the hiring for employees by creating job postings, running background checks, and reviewing and screening hiring.
  2. b)Once an employee is hired, the employer may perform employment onboarding processes using the Software, including loading the new employee into the Software, generating electronic new hire forms (e.g., W-4 form; I-9 form) for the employee to sign, and electronically reporting new employees to government agencies.
  3. c)After a new employee has been onboarded, the employee may utilize the time tracking functionality. The employee may clock-in using the Software, and the employer may view those employee time records.
  4. d)Once a pay period is finished, the employer may process employee timesheets and run payroll using the Software and FingerCheck Services. The employer may print checks, set up direct deposit, or transfer funds into paycards in order to pay employees. The FingerCheck Services also offer third party agency check services. Certain payroll, direct deposit and tax services are provided by third party contractors of FingerCheck, and such functionality is provided only through separate and/or additional contract terms and conditions.
