I ended the contract before the freelancer could begin. Will money be refunded to me? Or did the freelancer still get paid? He clocked no hours but status says complete. If so how long?
If it was an hourly contract (as you mention hours being logged) you haven't paid anything so nothing has to be refunded.
If it was a fixed rate contract and you deposited funds in escrow hours don't come into it (no logging hours for fixed rate contracts) you'll see your funds back within 5 days of the freelaner agreeing to the return of the funds.
So the first thing you want to work out is if the contract was fixed or hourly. You can also check on the contract if you have paid anything to the freelancer.
