Terms & Conditions

These terms and conditions apply to the Share TriNet Rewards Program ("Program") of TriNet HR Corporation (“TriNet”). By referring new business to TriNet, the referring customer agrees to be bound by these terms and conditions. This program is administered by NextBee, Inc. (“NextBee”). The use of the Program is governed by NextBee’s terms and conditions in addition to the terms and conditions set forth below:
You do not need to be a TriNet employee to be eligible to participate in the Program. In fact, TriNet appreciates it very much when the worksite employees of TriNet clients, friends, and associates refer new business.
Participants agree to abide by these rules and by the decisions of TriNet, which are final, binding and non-appealable, on all matters. These terms and conditions of the referral program are independent of any other relationship between you and TriNet. Each party will indemnify the other party for any third party claims related to the referral program.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, TriNet reserves the right to change or cancel the program at any time, at its sole discretion.

DEFINITION OF A QUALIFIED REFERRAL

The purpose of this program is to bring on new TriNet clients through referrals. A referral is considered qualified once a first meeting with a TriNet sales representative has been completed. Please allow 14 business days for the status of a submitted referral to be updated and points distributed to your Share TriNet account.
Several characteristics make a good referral. Here are the recommended criteria for any submission:
  • What makes good referral? In terms of the position of the contact person and the size of, and industry of the referral, the following specifications would be ideal. But please do not let this hold you back from making a submission. Marketing will vet each referral with Sales to ensure we bring on as many quality new clients as we can.
    • Ideal industries: technology, professional services, biotech & life sciences, consulting services, not-for- profit and education companies, financial services (hedge funds, private equity, venture capital, family offices, registered investment advisors), banks, manufacturing, construction, retail, hospitality and skilled trades.
    • Company Size: 1-500 employees
    • High Level contact: C-level, Owner, President, Founder, Director, Controller, etc.
  • The referral should be a brand new record within our contact management system, SalesForce.com. If the referral is an existing record in SalesForce.com, it must be inactive for 45 days or more in order to be considered for the referral program.
  • Every referral submission is verified. For example, if the contact person is a duplicate for the same company, the referral will not qualify for this referral program. If you refer a different contact at a company that has already been referred, the referral may or may not qualify, depending on the particular circumstances.
  • The referral must be someone you know. In other words, when we call and/or email them, we’ll mention your name or copy you on the email. If the referral does not know you personally, your referral will not qualify and you will not be eligible for rewards points.
Referrals of companies working in a profession for which TriNet does not provide service do not count as qualified referrals.
TriNet has the right to set an annual limit, in its sole discretion, on the number of Qualified Referrals earned by a single referrer.
TriNet has the right to set a limit to the number of points earned weekly per referrer through social media and email sharing.
If a referral is submitted for a company where the participant is an employee or owner or if a referral is submitted for a company that is already a TriNet customer, the referral will not qualify as a referral for the Share TriNet Program.
The individual who was issued a Share TriNet link by TriNet will be considered to be the "Registered User" for all Qualified Referrals made using that Share TriNet link. A Registered User may share a Share TriNet link to referred customers by email subject to applicable law, including, but not limited to the CAN SPAM Act. Use of spam or purchased or harvested consumer lists is prohibited and will result in immediate termination of the Registered User's referral account, the forfeiture of any accrued points or payments and the deactivation of Share TriNet Links.

EXCLUSIONS

  • TriNet reserves the right to disqualify any participant that it determines, in its sole discretion, is ineligible to participate in the program. For example, TriNet corporate employees who are vice president and above or who are quota-carrying TriNet sales representatives are ineligible.
  • TriNet has complete discretion as to who it will do business with and on what terms including, without limitation, whether to accept a referral as a customer. TriNet is not responsible for lost, misdirected or delayed referrals.
  • All participants in any other TriNet referral program relating to TriNet products and services are ineligible to participate in TriNet’s Share TriNet Rewards Program.
  • All electronic gift cards must be redeemed by the expiration date set forth on the gift certificate. The electronic gift cards’ expiration date will be sent to you, along with the card number and link to register the card. You shall not transfer or assign any program awards to any third-party, and their resale is prohibited. Electronic gift cards may not be combined or used in conjunction with any other offer. TriNet is not responsible for lost, stolen, or misused electronic gift cards, cards or codes. Risk of loss passes upon electronic transmission of the gift certificate to the recipient. Electronic gift cards are non-refundable and cannot be redeemed for cash value.
  • Users may not participate in the Share TriNet Rewards Program where doing so would be prohibited by any applicable law or regulation.

PROGRAM CANCELLATION AND TERMINATION

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, TriNet may at any time, without prior notice, terminate or modify the Share TriNet Rewards Program and/or these terms and conditions. All questions or disputes regarding eligibility for this program, the eligibility of rewards, or terms and conditions of the program will be resolved by TriNet in its sole discretion. TriNet reserves the right to void referrals and gift certificate credits earned if it suspects that the referrals or gift certificate credits were earned in a fraudulent manner, in a manner that violates applicable law or these terms or in a manner otherwise not intended by TriNet.

TAXES

Electronic gift cards redeemed under the program are subject to applicable federal, state and/or local taxes. Recipients of referral rewards are responsible for all tax liabilities, if any, on their rewards. Upon TriNet's determination that you should receive a cash referral bonus, TriNet will contact you to request a completed IRS Form W-9. Your W-9 must be submitted and received by TriNet, or your referral bonus will be held. As an alternative, you may choose to donate your referral reward to any one of several participating charities or you may choose to have your referral reward applied as a credit to your company's TriNet invoice (if your company is a current TriNet client). To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, TriNet reserves the right to rescind or donate your referral reward to any charity of its choosing if no response is received within 180 days from when TriNet contacted you for your W-9 and referral payment preference. Referral payments to TriNet corporate employees will be subject to tax withholding requirements, so no W-9 will be required. TriNet will report earnings under this program to the extent required by applicable law. All gift cards and reward bonuses earned through this program may be subject to taxation and will be reflected on the Form W-2 if TriNet is the individual’s W-2 employer.
