Accepting a job is a little bit like entering into a marriage. As with any relationship, communication is key, and if you want a ‘happily ever after’, you need to set expectations up front.
Now that we’ve rolled out our improved payment system, agreements are more powerful than ever. They lay the foundation for everything that happens once you’ve been hired, from how your employers are billed to how quickly you get paid.
Your agreement is a contract between you and your employer. Make sure it includes all of the payment terms you want. After all, you decide whether you require a minimum SafePay balance, and how long your employer has to pay your invoices. We’re simply mediators, making sure work is funded and paid for according to your terms.
How does an agreement ensure you get paid on time?
We will automatically charge your employer if they don’t hold true to their word. This means funding SafePay when the required minimum balance is not met, and paying invoices when the employer is late.
So the next time you accept a job, set yourself up for a successful client relationship with an agreement.
