Hi Mile,

If you're not happy with the freelancer, you can terminate the contract right now.
The freelancer won't be able to log more hours on your job.

But if the freelancer is using the Upwork Tracker , you'll have access to screenshots of the work done by now. Unless the freelancer has been using your time on anything other than your job, he/she will be entitled to the be paid for the hours logged.

Hope it's helps and that you can get your project done by someone professional soon.

Hi Mile, 

I checked your account and can see that the contract started just this Sunday, and your freelancer logged hours on Tuesday. You should be able to dispute the hours your freelancer logged starting next Monday, 25-September, up to Friday, 29-September. 

Please read up on this help article for more information on disputing your freelancer's hours.

I am a freelancer but I will advice my precious clients to always monitor their houly contracts for invalid time logs as this is the behaviour of some freelancers. As soon as you hire them they begin to use the tracker.
