hi! I would like to ask if maybe we can work on giving the freelancers the security of keeping his work even for at least two weeks in cases when the employer decides to end the freelancer's contract. It so unfortunate to lose a job and get caught up in that situation flat-footed.
Maybe we can formulate or implement some sort of guaranteed 2-week payment for the newly fired freelancer. It would, I think, give him an ample time to find a replacement job. I mean for humanitarian reasons, please.
You are obviously a kind soul.
But what you are describing is not freelancing.
Upwork will not be doing this.
But if you want to set up a freelance work platform that provides unemployment benefits, you are welcome to do so.
