will my arbitration fees will be refunded if I win the case?
No, you only get the amount in escrow. But it seems the client's tactic is designed to bully you into not actually going ahead.
She may very well fold when you call her bluff.
Another thing i need to know.
if she agree to resolve this issue by paying me some that I agree on. What are the steps I should I take on my end so I am sure that I get the money she said she is paying.
this is client's last message
"Escalate it, because YOU ARE NOT GETTING PAID.
We will pay more so you dont get paid. You dont deserve it.
Just because you are broke, its not our problem. Do the work and finish the work. You are lazy."
Why are you still communicating outside the dispute?
Freelancers frequesntly talk themselves out of getting paid that way.
Go in the dispute and tell the mediator that unfortunately it seems that communication has broken down to such an extend that an amicable solution can not be reached through mediation, and ask to initiate the arbitration process.
Be calm, polite, factual, professional, and firm. Say as much as necessary, and as little as possile. Do not provide her with rope to hang you with.
i am in a dispute with a client. She dont want to pay me for my work. She said it openly, she said she would pay more so i dont get paid. While the dispute process with upwork's agent, all my proofs made her made and she abused me on whatsapp (we have in contact on whatsapp too). She is claiming in the dispute thread that she did not text me and asking agent to dail the number. Is it going to be a part of harrasment? upworking is taking any action?
