Hello, A potential employer ask me for my home address. Is this appropriate?
Did he give his reasoning as to why he needs it? I really don't think it's appropriate and would not give it to him.
I do not think it is appropriate for an Upwork client to ask for your home address.
Upwork itself has your home address.
One thing that a lot of us do is tell clients that Upwork has our information and they are welcome to check with Upwork if they have identity verification questions.
If you are asked for a physical address and really want to provide an address, then you can simply provide a P.O. box address, or the address of your local post office.
