Re: Scam? Client Hired Me for Hourly Pay and Has Not Paid Me for Work, Paused Contract

Client thanked me for my work and said they were pausing my contract because they were traveling. I have 3 hours of unpaid work for content I produced. I really don't think the client intends on paying, but I've been told that there are penalities for paused contracts. If I'm being scammed, how do I make sure I'm not penalized?

You get paid on an hourly contract the next billing cycle whether it's paused or closed.

Hi Bree. I'm new to the site and was just wondering if you were able to resolve this issue with the client?

Hi Bree,


As long as you tracked your time when you worked using Upwork App, the client will be billed and charged according to the Weekly Billing Cycle. You can also check your Reports overview for more information whether the amount is currently under Review or Pending.


I hope it helps.
