I've recently moved from Elance and I can't find any details of the Errors and Omissions Insurance provided by Upwork.

 

 

https://www.elance.com/q/business-solutions/compliance

Note on this Elance page they state:

 

Insurance
Making sure that your freelancers carry the proper insurance is important for risk mitigation. Elance includes two levels of insurance protection for freelancers you hire through Elance.
 
E&O insurance
All providers on Elance are covered with Errors and Omissions Insurance (E&O).
 
General and Professional Liability
Freelancers working through Elance Payroll Services have the added protection of complete general and professional liability protection.

Hi Timothy,

 

Please take a look at the Upwork Payroll Agreement.

There's nothing here about indemnity or errors & omissions insurance.

 

Also, that agreement only applies to Upwork Payroll services. Not regular jobs.

Timothy,

 

That's because Upwork doesn't provide any.

 

Best,

Michael

You're right, I heard back from them and they don't.

 

This was something that was offered by Elance, I wonder how many Freelancers have transitioned thinking they'll still be covered when they're not. A scary thought.

 

We're paying 2% more here yet we lose one of the most valuable parts.
