If a uPaged hospital has opted to employ uPaged nurses, the hospital is your employer.
If a uPaged hospital has opted to use uPaged's partner payroll company to employ uPaged nurses, this company is your employer.
When you are booked into a shift, the confirmation message in the platform will let you know the name of your employer as either the hospital or uPaged's partner payroll company.
uPaged shifts are casual shifts, so you will be asked to sign a casual contract with either of the above before your first shift. This means you become a casual employee of that hospital or the partner payroll company, so be sure to look out for an email from them. It could be in your junk mail.
uPaged is not your employer. You can, however, choose the shifts with the rate of pay you want, and you will always be a uPaged nurse as long as you continue to book shifts through the platform.
