Agencies on Upwork?

reichstephen

Are Agencies allowed on Upwork?

 

Why does the **edited for Community Guidelines** have 8 freelancers getting jobs?

 

Can anyone explain the policy on Agencies? 

 

Thank you

Agencies are allowed.

 

They can bid on  behalf of their agency freelancers, but the client hires the feelancers through the agency, and pays the agency (through Upwork) who in turn pays the freelancers outside Upwork.

 

Responsibility for the work is with the agency.

 

Only the freelancers specifically hired by the client may touch the client's work.
