19 Community Agreement
The WAHM Community and commenting is provided to allow our Members to get to know each other and support each other as fellow Work At Home Mums and as individuals. To ensure that this community can continue to provide this benefit to our members, we require you to abide by the following rules as outlined below.
Failure to abide by will result in immediate termination of your Membership, without any prior notice or warning and your comments deleted.
- If your comments are a blatant ad, it will be removed; there are paid opportunities to promote your opportunity.
- If your first post is promoting any kind of program with or without a referral link, it will be removed.
- We will delete your post if you break any of these rules. If you post about your post being deleted, that will also be deleted, and you will be suspended
- No self-promotional posts. Affiliate links, personal website links, taglines and personal information are not allowed in posts.
- If you post information on a “FREE” product and the only way for somebody to get it is to enter their information, thereby adding them to your mailing list, it will be removed.
- If the only contribution you ever make to the Community is “Try my program, it’s the greatest”, you got it it’s going to be deleted.
- Posts titled “Looking for a work at home opportunity” will be deleted as they have been asked countless times and replied to, you got it it’s going to be deleted
- If all you do is pop into the Community every month or two to post, you run the risk of this being removed, because WAHM considers that spamming. If you want your product seen, then participate and you will EARN the right to discuss your opportunity.
- As WAHM’s we all have to learn the art of self-promotion. However, there is a difference between a great post that talks about yourself in relation to other Work At Home Mums and perhaps the discussion in hand, and a post that just says, “I have this great opportunity and you have to find out more about this fantastic scheme from me”. It will be deleted.
- Do not make income claims. All posts with income claims of any type will be deleted.
- Show Respect. The number one rule here is to respect each other. We all come from different places, different families and different situations. With a large group of people, it is inevitable that some will not get along with others.
- Hate posts and personal attacks will not be tolerated. Treat others within this Community as you would expect them to treat you. You have the right to state your opinion in a respectful way. Any more than that and it is considered argumentative and will not be tolerated.
- Business Reviews. Please keep posts about business, organisations and professionals limited to your own personal experience. Negative feedback about a business could destroy someone’s livelihood, so keep your posts factual and avoid name calling and hearsay.
20. Jobs Board
All job board advertisements will be reviewed and are subject to approval before placement on WAHM. We reserve the right to reject any advertising, graphic, text description or URL.
WAHM agrees to use reasonable efforts to publish advertisements in the shortest possible time frame. We are not liable for any loss or damage incurred by a Subscriber or Business owner as a result of any failure or delay in listing an advertisement.
The Jobs Board is reserved for advertisements which carry a specific and genuine offer of employment, home based business opportunity or home based franchise.
The categories that advertisements are placed under can often have a greater effect on Job Seekers. Many job and business opportunity advertisements are potentially misleading simply because that appears under inappropriate headings. It is important to place all advertisements under the right category. Misleading job and business opportunity advertisements cause job seekers a great deal of hardship and difficulty.
Positions vacant are reserved for positions involving work as a full time, part time, job share, casual, work from home, employee etc. Typically such jobs offer a regular paid wage or salary and at least some conditions such as holiday pay, sick leave, work cover or workers compensation.
Positions which do not involve an employer/employee relationship should be advertised under such headings as self employment, freelance, business opportunities or self employment. It is important that these kinds of advertisements are not placed in the same section as general positions vacant advertisements.
Commission only work typically involves selling goods or services for a percentage of sales receipts. To avoid misleading Job Seekers, the exact terms of remuneration should be specified in the ad, for example commission only.
Home based business and self employment business opportunities. Legal provisions outlaw false and misleading representations for these types of business, particularly those concerning the risk or profitability of the business. Self employment or business opportunity ads should be placed in these categories and not the working from home category.
Many Job Seekers are misled because of non disclosure (or inadequate) of remuneration. The advertisement should include details about how remuneration will come about.
If you are placing advertisements under self employment or business opportunity you should clearly state the realistically expected return of the venture and be able to provide proof of the figures you quote. You should also ensure that you are complying with and disclosure requirements you may have under the law in your Country.
Advertisers agree not to use the site to post any pyramid scheme and also agree not to ask or require any candidate to pay a fee, charge, cost or any money whatsoever to apply for any job advertised on the Site whether such fee, charge, cost or money is asked or required of the candidate in the job advertisement itself or in any communication with the candidate that takes place as a result of a job advertisement placed on the Site.
Prospective Job Seekers should not be forced to call a premium rate number (1900 or 0055) to investigate potential vacancies
Australian Job Advertisers must comply with the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission Act 1986 (C’th) and all anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation applicable. Advertisers must ensure that all advertisements posted to the site comply with all applicable legislation, regulations, by-laws, ordinances and codes of conduct, including but not limited to the: Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth), including but not limited to s.53B which requires that Advertisers that are companies not mislead persons seeking employment as to the availability, nature, terms or conditions or, any other matter relating to the employment opportunity being offered; Fair Trading Acts in all applicable States and Territories; Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) including the National Privacy Principles; and Estate Agents Acts in all applicable States and Territories.

United Kingdom Job Advertisers must comply with the Equality & Human Rights Commissions website at equalityhumanrights.com, The Race Relations Act 1976, The Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006. It is unlawful, except in certain clearly specified circumstances, to advertise for potential employees or contractors to be employed in the UK in a way that indicates or might reasonably be understood as indicating, an intention to discriminate. We comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 (UK)
United States Job Advertisers must comply with Federal laws applicable to each state and its own unfair competition law to prohibit false and misleading advertising. The FTC’s Trade Regulation Rule on Franchises and Business Opportunities (“Franchise Rule”) governs the sale of franchises and business opportunities. The law requires sellers to make specific disclosures, give prospective buyers a document containing certain key information about the business opportunity, and be able to substantiate any earnings claims. For more information about buying or selling a franchise, ask the FTC for the Franchise Rule and Your Legal Rights: A Guide FTC Franchise Rule. In addition, visit the FTC website for information on what entrepreneurs need to know before buying any kind of business opportunity and alerting them to the latest “bizop” scams. Many states also have laws governing these transactions. Check with the Attorney General’s office in the state(s) where you plan to advertise. We comply with the Privacy Act of 1974 (USA)
WAHM reserves the right to edit, re-categorise, change or update a job advertisement at any time. This would generally only be done to correct mistakes or omissions made. We regularly patrol the job board and will remove job listings that violate policy from the site or if we receive complaints from job seekers. We are vigilant in keeping tabs on fraudulent job listings.
