It all boils down to whether or not you want to spend time and legal-money fighting being kicked off the platform for not playing by the faux-employee rules stated in the work order.

So I guess this clearly means that all service platforms must ensure the wording of any WO must not have any reference to "I work for (buyer name)".

I wonder if this lawsuit will place "platform providers" under the IRS microscope?

Funny...  I started the signup process with them ages ago,  and that came to a screeching halt when I saw what they were paying.  I told 'em flat out that this wasn't anywhere near my rates (which weren't as high then as they are now) and that was the end of that.

I haven't heard a word from them since.

Maybe they lost my info?

if they did consider yourself lucky

Well a coupla comments:

a) In today's marketplace, I doubt you will get any company to sign an agreement with you (or your company).  They will just keep routing the work order to more techs until one accepts it without conditions.

b) if you do want a T&C (terms & conditions) form, you are better off paying a lawyer to draft one, as a home grown form will almost never stand up in court (assuming a client of yours ever signs one).

I will no longer take a companies word for it, to visit and do any kind of work without first creating a account, then have them pre pay for a walk though/site survey. But also want a terms and agreement legal form for larger jobs taking over a day. I talked to my attorney and it will cost $300-$500 to draft one up. She also stated if I had one that I can make some changes to and have them create then it would cost me $300.00

So, if anyone has a T&A form and we can talk about the legalities of getting paid and our responsibilities in the form that would be great :)

They did reply to my response with a counteroffer, and it was very condescending. The representative did not sign his or her name to the response. Is this really someone from Barrister? I think so, but this is the Internet, so how can one know for sure?
