According to a survey by the Freelancers Union, more than 70% of freelancers report having a nonpaying client. If you’re a freelancer, you know that not being paid damages your bottom line, and can even ruin your career if it happens often enough. But while recovering the funds you’re due is possible, it’s not necessarily an easy task.
Much of the reason some clients don’t pay freelancers stems from the nature of the freelancer-client relationship. And understanding the nature of that relationship can go a long way in helping you recover your hard-earned money.
