Job Posting Guidelines
The compilation (meaning the collection, arrangement and assembly) of all content on www.PTJobs.com (the "Site") is the exclusive property of PTJobs.com, a division of GNR Health Systems, Inc., and is protected by U.S. and international copyright laws.
PTJobs.com is dedicated to the profession of physical therapy. Our founder and CEO, Rick Shutes, is a PT who has dedicated his 38 year career to the betterment of the profession. He has served on many state and national committees including APTA committees charged with the "POPTS" issue.
Our position then is very clear - PTJobs.com is opposed to "Referral for Profit".
To that end we support the APTA's position statement:
"APTA is opposed, as a matter of health care policy, to arrangements under which sources of referral (including physicians) stand to profit from referring patients for physical therapy. The policy, adopted by the House of Delegates, states: "The American Physical Therapy Association opposes ... participation in services that is in any way linked to the financial gain of the referral source." Financial Considerations in Practice (HOD 06-99-13-17)."
We believe that "Referral for Profit" represents a fundamental conflict of interest which inherently threatens the autonomy of professional physical therapy practice.
Therefore, as a matter of policy, PTJobs.com does not knowingly accept job listings for positions in a practice if any physician has a financial interest in the practice and refers patients to an employed physical therapist or to a physical therapist who supervises an employed physical therapist assistant.
We reserve the right to refuse any job posts or provide any job board services that conflict with this policy.
The Site may be used only for lawful purposes by individuals seeking employment and career information, as well

- Printing out or otherwise copying or using any personally identifiable information about candidates for purposes other than consideration of the candidates for potential employment or placement by your company.

- Spamming PTJobs.com member companies or candidates whose resumes appear on the site.
- Using a resume or otherwise responding to a job listing other than for the purpose of applying for a job on behalf of yourself.

We strive to excel as the premier online recruitment resource created to assist and connect employers with qualified job seekers. It's vital that we provide a pleasant 'job seeker' experience for our users. In an effort to ensure a positive experience we have the following job post guidelines.
Types of job posts accepted:
- Legitimate job posts by:
- Direct employers.
- Recruiting & Staffing Agencies with a valid contract in place or a split fee arrangement with a second recruiter who hold a valid contract with an employer.
- Draw ads:
- Draw ads must be accurately presented to job seekers as such and should not try to imitate a legitimate job post.
PTJobs.com reserves the right to request proof of contracts at anytime. Disciplinary action may be taken for customers not abiding by these guidelines and can include removal of account services without the opportunity for contract renewal.
Take time to double check your job posts to ensure you are not posting positions that include any of following examples:
- Multiple job posts in the same city and state. We understand you may have few job opportunities within the same areas, however 10+ job listings in the same exact location is NOT acceptable.
- Each job post should contain a detailed long description. Include all the 'selling' points of interest so job seekers are engaged and enticed to contact you regarding job opportunities.
- Check all job postings for accuracy so you are not misinforming or misrepresenting your company.
- Remove recently filled positions so you do not waste the job seekers time.
- Make sure each job posts list a specific city (not region), state and zip code.
Please take pride in your job posting to help enhance the job seeker experience so our services continue to provide you with an excellent return on investment.
PTJobs.com operates on a 'no refund' policy. We do NOT provide full or partial refunds for services rendered.
