Subcontracting from other Upwork freelancers?

How do you handle a situation if you believe another freelancer is "subcontracting" their assignments to you? Is it legal per Upwork agreement and is it common?

Hi Brandy,

 

Subcontracting is allowed for fixed-price contracts. The person who subcontracts is responsible for the product being delivered and needs to make the client aware that somebody else is also working on the assignment. 

Freelancers can't subcontract their hourly contracts.

 

You can find more information about subcontracting in article 8.2 of the User Agreement.

Thank you Valeria. Again. I don't even know how I would have found this or how I missed it to begin with. I'll do some reading and leave the boards at peace for a while.
