I can't show my face, sorry. Can I be approved like this?
It is due to religious reasons. I hope you understand; I'm a genuine person; no scam or anything.I just want to offer my services here at my own pace...as I am developing my expertise.
It would be fascinating to learn how this works out. What an interesting position for Upwork to be in. A relatively iron-clad rule vs. religious tolerance. I am not smart enough to figure this stuff out. I'd love to know how it was resolved.
John: This is not complicated.
Upwork simply allows freelancers to verify their identity by making special arrangements (such as allowing Muslim women who wear a veil to do video verification with a female agent), and then the freelancers are allowed to use a photo in which they wear their religious garb.
So neither Upwork's policies nor the freelancer's religious rules are violated.
