cannot be feasible in many countries, due to lack of legal status. Only this afternoon I have posted a remark about an Nth outsourcer and I see the same screens always " do you wish that collects the outstanding amount on your behalf" , " enter the value " I say yes, but it does not happen. I could submit as many invoices for the correct work deliverd tuning to over €15000 in various countries. This sounds like an empty promise or offer. I am not happy with that either. After all I do full job and do not receive payment, so here is the option that the management collects may be decucts some percentile but nothing ever happens. Brandis

Option for registering non-payment issue when making LWA entry Mar 31, 2008

Dear Brandis,

It sounds like you are referring to the form which you may optionally fill out when making an LWA entry if there is a non-payment issue present. The wording has been "I authorize to use my name in communications with outsourcers in regards to non-payment". This has been expanded to

I authorize to use my name in communications with outsourcers in regards to non-payment (Please note that is not responsible for collecting payments)

in order to help avoid any other possible confusion. Thanks.

Best regards,
