1.6M+ reasons why clients can request unpaid tests

If I apply for a job and do not participate in an unpaid test but report the client for ToS violation, Upwork should return the connects. Some freelancers need them and if Upwork refuses to take down the job they should at least return these wasted connects.

 

If Upwork leaves the job up, it's fine with me, I don't care, (and maybe that's the wrong attitude but that's the way I feel.) It's also not my job to worry about other freelancers. My job here is to obtain jobs and do the best possible work that I can. I report jobs, and that's it, Whether they are taken down, whether they hire someone and take it off site it's not my concern anymore. I did what I could, It doesn't matter if Upwork keeps the job up or takes it down. 

 

But here is the problem with the statement above. So Upwork returns the connects for all the freelancers who've applied to that job. BUT...... the job still says up. (or the client deletes that unpaid test statement from the job description but still enforces it for all that apply, Does upwork keep returning all the connects from the freelancers who still keep applying? How does that work then?

Hi Bojan,

 

are you working on the issue? When will the job description be removed and the connects returned to the freelancers?

Hi Jennifer,

 

As we've shared before, we won't be able to provide details about the outcome of the team's review of the job and the client's account. Rest assured that any evidence is reviewed and action is taken accordingly.

 

Thanks.

But how long can it take? Some jobs are taken down within the hour and this one is still up and has been reposted since. I can forward the entire email if you tell me to which email address.

Jennifer, 

 

Could you please send me or Bojan a screenshot of the email (and not a copy pasted text) via a private message? We could forward it to the team for review as well.

 

Thanks.
