Employee Referral Program Guidelines

I. PURPOSE:

Tenet is a community where you work with your friends. We spend great effort and expense to recruit and retain motivated, engaged employees. It is our philosophy that our employees, who work here everyday, are the best judges of who would be successful employees.

Our recruiters make it a top priority to actively pursue employee referrals. These guidelines outline the rewards and rules for Tenet Healthcare’s National Employee Referral Program (referred to as the “ERP”.)

To refer someone, logon to the National Employee Referral Web Site, www.hospitalreferralreward.com, or have your friends list your name on their application when they apply.

The purpose of this program is to encourage employees to invite their friends to join our community by referring them to any Tenet facility.

The ERP’s eligible positions and standard Referral Rewards are as follows:

Position Standard Referral Reward
RN (Registered Nurse) – any position for which RN license is required or preferred
Pharmacist
Physical Therapist
Occupational Therapist
Speech & Language Pathologist
$2,500 (Full-Time)
$1,250 (Part-Time)
“Hard To Fill” - Each facility establishes these eligible positions and controls campaign time limits (i.e., the time period in which referrals will be accepted.) See attachment A for a guide of common “Hard to Fill” master job codes. $1,000 (Full-Time)
$ 500 (Part-Time)
Conifer Health Solutions
All non RN Positions
$500

II. DEFINITIONS:

RN: any position which requires or prefers an RN license.1

A standard Referral Reward of $2,500 will be paid for any Full-time or $1,250 for any Part-time RN position nationally or locally. If the facility would like to request an exception for a larger Referral Reward for RNs, the Regional HRD (RHRD) must approve the request to increase the standard award by granting an exception. Facilities have the option to include or exclude GNs under this program.

HARD TO FILL – any position identified by a particular facility that is nationally recognized as hard to fill due to the persistent difficulty in attracting qualified candidates. Attachment “A” is a guide for “Hard to Fill” positions, but it is not an all-inclusive list. Facilities have the flexibility to designate which positions fall under this category.

A standard Referral Reward of $1,000 will be paid for any designated Full-time or $500.00 for any Part-time “Hard to Fill” position nationally or locally. If the facility would like to request an exception for a larger Referral Reward for HTFs, the Regional HRD (RHRD) must approve the request to increase the standard award by granting an exception.

FEATURED JOB: this is an RN or “Hard to Fill” position posted on the home page of the facility’s page of the national employee referral web site. Any position listed as a “featured job” is eligible for a referral reward.

RN jobs under the “Featured Job” category follow the above Referral Reward minimum as outlined under “RN”
Hard to Fill jobs under “Featured Job” follow the above Referral Reward minimum as outlined under “Hard to Fill”.

GENERAL JOB: all other positions which are not designated as an “RN,” “Hard to Fill” or “Featured Job.”

General Job positions currently are not eligible for a Referral Reward under the ERP. If a facility wishes to identify a general job as a reward eligible position, the Regional HRD must grant an exception for such request and set the time limits for such rewards.

This includes all RNs designated by Tenet that are currently identified in the R&R report as an RN with a job class designation of “17” or Manager designation of “ 0”. Please consult HR for any questions.

III. GUIDELINES:

  • A facility will pay monetary Referral Rewards to eligible employees who refer qualified external candidates who are hired into eligible positions posted on the particular facility’s page of the National Employee Referral Web Site.
    • Referral Rewards will be paid for referrals to Full-time and Part-time eligible positions.
    • Referral Reward eligible positions are: RN, Pharmacist, Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Speech and Language Pathologist and “Hard to Fill” positions as designated by each facility. (See Attachment A for a guide of common “Hard to Fill” master job codes.)
    • Referral Rewards will also be paid for Per Diem conversions to Full-time or Part-time eligible positions if the conversion occurs within six (6) months of the original hire date of the employee being referred. The referral must have been made according to Section III (1) below at or before the time of the original hire date; not the conversion or status change date.
    • If a referred existing employee transfers; the balance due on a reward payment to the referring employee is paid by the receiving facility; not the facility transferring the employee.
    • Featured Jobs are posted locally by each facility. Visit the National Employee Referral Web Site, www.hospitalreferralreward.com, to see the Featured Jobs of a particular facility or contact the facility’s HR department.
    • Not all positions are eligible for a Referral Reward. All facilities will gladly accept referrals on General Jobs, but no Referral Reward will be paid unless approved by exception.
    • Conifer Health Solutions participates in the ERP but may reward general referral amounts as set by Conifer. RN rewards will follow the national referral program.
  • The guidelines governing eligibility to participate in the ERP are:
    • Most active Tenet employees; including Per Diem, Part-time, Full-time with benefits, and Full-time without benefits are eligible to participate in the ERP.
    • Employees who are not eligible include:
      • Corporate Officers (VP and above)
      • All A-Team members (on corporate payroll)
      • Department Directors, Managers and Supervisors who are the sole hiring decision-makers on an applicant
      • Any employee working in Human Resources
      • Staffing office Directors, Supervisors, and Coordinators
      • Individuals who are not employees of a Tenet facility, i.e. agency, outside contractors, and outside vendors

    ***Questions regarding the eligibility of any other employee or position should be referred to the facility’s Human Resources Director (HRD) or the National Recruiting Director. Only the local HRD is authorized to make final decisions regarding eligibility, participation, and payment of a Referral Reward.***

  • Referral Rewards will be paid only for qualified “external” candidates hired in to an eligible position.
    • The referred employee must be hired by a Tenet facility for a Full-time or Part-time eligible position.
    • If the referred employee is a former employee of a Tenet facility, they must be eligible for rehire, and must have had a break in employment from any Tenet facility for more than twelve (12) consecutive months.
    • Facilities are not obligated to hire an applicant referred by an employee.
  • Referral Rewards will be paid when an eligible referral is made in accordance with the guidelines of the ERP:
    • There is no limit to the number of referrals an employee can submit or Referral Rewards an eligible employee can receive under the ERP.

      Position Standard Referral Reward
      RN (Registered Nurse) – any position for which RN license is required or preferred

    • Referral Rewards are paid to eligible referring employees by check or direct deposit in 2 installments: 1) 50% of the gross amount of the Referral Reward after the referred employee completes 90 calendar days of employment in the eligible position; and 2) the remainder at the time the referred employee completes one year of employment in the eligible position.
    • Referral Reward payments shall be scheduled once the hire date of the referred employee has been validated. Both the referring employee and referred employee must be employed by a Tenet facility in eligible positions at the time of the scheduled payments. No Referral Reward payments will be made to employees not then employed in eligible positions.
    • If the referred employee separates employment or otherwise ceases to be employed in an eligible position under the ERP at any time within one year of hire, no further Referral Reward payments will be made to the referring employee with respect to that referral.
    • If the referred employee converts from an eligible Full-time or Part-time status in an eligible position under the ERP at any time within one year of hire, the HRD will have the sole discretion as to whether further Referral Reward payments will be made to the referring employee with respect to that referral.
    • Partial payments or prorated payments of a Referral Reward will not be made to a referring employee.
    • If two or more eligible employees refer the same qualified applicant to the same eligible position under the ERP, and the referred applicant is hired into an eligible position, any Referral Reward will be split evenly among the referring employees regardless of the means of submission of the referral under Section III (1) of these guidelines.
    • In instances where disputes arise from Referral Reward payments, the HRD has the authority to interpret and apply these ERP guidelines appropriately.
    • Referral Rewards are considered taxable income and are subject to IRS taxes and withholdings.
    • An attempted referral under the ERP, even if made in accordance with Section III (1) below, will not be eligible for a Referral Reward if the referral is made after the hire date of the referred employee.

IV. PROCEDURE:

  • An eligible employee makes a referral of a qualified external candidate under the ERP when:
    • The eligible employee accesses the National Employee Referral Web Site, www.hospitalreferralreward.com, and enters the referred applicant’s information; or
    • The referred applicant lists the eligible employee’s name on the application as the referring employee when applying for an eligible position at the facility’s website or the Career Center of the Tenet Healthcare website; or
    • The referred applicant submits a referral card with the referred employee’s name to the Recruiter in the Human Resource department, and the Recruiter enters the referral into the system.
  • Faxes, handwritten forms, memos, phone calls, or other correspondence will not qualify as a referral.
  • When an eligible referral qualifies for a Referral Reward under the ERP, the facility’s Human Resource Department will notify the referring employee and the facility’s Payroll Department to coordinate the appropriate timing and payment of the Referral Reward.
  • The HRD has the authority to interpret and apply the ERP guidelines as outlined above.
  • Any concerns or disputes regarding the administration of the ERP, including fraud, abuse, or misrepresentation should be immediately reported to the applicable facility’s HRD.
  • Audit Services may periodically conduct audits of the ERP.
  • The HRD has the authority to investigate and resolve any issues regarding the administration of the program and has sole discretion to require verification of any referral.
  • In those instances where verification is required, the referred employee will sign a referral verification confirming the referral of record on the referral website and/or application.

ELIGIBILITY FOR OR PARTICIPATION IN THE ERP DOES NOT ALTER THE AT-WILL NATURE OF THE EMPLOYMENT OF ANY EMPLOYEE. THE ERP CAN BE MODIFIED OR DISCONTINUED AT ANY TIME AT THE DISCRETION OF TENET’S CORPORATE HUMAN RESOURCES.
