The Referral Process

To ensure external referrals are credited for their referral, the applicant must enter their name as a referral source in the LinQuest applicant tracking system when they submit their formal application.

If the Referral is hired at LinQuest, and LinQuest determines that you are eligible for a Referral Payment, LinQuest will contact you for the required contact information and paperwork.

If the referred candidate is successfully hired by LinQuest, the external referral must complete and return the Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 in order to receive the referral payment. This form will be supplied to the external referral person/referrer by LinQuest and can be submitted via drop box once the referred candidate has started employment. LinQuest will process the external referral one-time payment within 30 days after the referred team member has completed 90 days of continuous employment, and the required documents have been submitted. Payments will be made on a 1099 basis and paid by company check from LinQuest.


LinQuest may modify or terminate the external referral program at its sole discretion and without notice. Referral fee payment is at the sole discretion of LinQuest. By submitting a referral, you agree that you are solely responsible for any taxes imposed upon the referral fee paid to you by LinQuest and that you shall comply with all applicable laws or regulations.
