Should I talk about this rule with my dispute specialists.
I just don't want him to think that I am teaching him the rules.
Your suggestion will be important to me.
Thank you

re: "Should I talk about this rule with my dispute specialists."

 

In my opinion: no.

 

We have already read about this before in the Forum. Other freelancers have reported that Upwork mediation specialists try to give clients more time to reply.

I completely disagree.

They give the client extra time until the freelancer pushes back. They have given the client time to reply. Ten days of time. Either there are rules, or there are no rules. And if rules apply to freelancers, rules have to apply to clients. Ten days is more than 5 business days. Enough already.

 

Zain, it is **YOUR** money you are disputing. Refer the mediation specialist to the article. 10 days means the client has been given plenty of extra time. Unless you stand up for yourself, nobody else will in a dispute, trust me on this one.

In my opinion: yes.

 

If a freelancer doesn't respond before a deadline like this, do mediators give them a 16-day extension and multiple warnings as well? Why not change the rule to give everyone 21 days if it's not actually a rule, just a guideline?
