How to handle coverage issues:
Good communication is key to ensuring good coverage. Here are some client and associate responsibilities which help us to avoid any gaps in service.
If a client office is closing (for e.g. holidays, special events, etc), or is closed unexpectedly, and the closure affects an appointment with your associate, it is the client responsibility to schedule make up time with their associate or agree to skip the appointment.
Clients must communicate to their associate, with appropriate notice, any upcoming deadlines (e.g. filings, board meetings, etc) and any scheduled office closures which will impact recurring appointments.
Clients must provide their associate a minimum of 24 hours notice for cancellation of an onsite appointment. Cancellation fees may apply.
Young Associates responsibilities:
If an associate is away (e.g. vacation, professional development) and it affects your appointment, they will either arrange for another Young Associates staff member to cover their appointment or they will get agreement from you to either reschedule or skip the appointment.
If an associate is sick / not available suddenly and it affects your appointment, Young Associates will endeavour to arrange for another associate to cover any urgent work.
Clients engage Young Associates to undertake a package of tasks, and it is important that responsibilities assigned to the associate by the client fall within those defined in the service agreement. Of course, we recognize that sometimes your needs change. If you wish your associate to take on duties which fall outside of the scope of the current service agreement, please contact the Practice Manager to discuss a revision.
