Company A has several writers employed to write articles ranging from 100-400 words, paying $1-$4 an article. Customers pay Company A to have their writers write articles with certain keywords and word counts.
A writer for Company A is able to complete many projects for the month. On the last day that a few projects were do, upon logging in they were already gone, so they could not be completed, losing about 3 projects.
The next day, while completing a project due on a particular day, the website has a glitch and will not let the writer stay logged into the account for a few hours.
Once the writer has access to the account again, the remaining projects that were due are no longer there to complete. The writer continues to complete other projects that have later due dates.
The next morning, the writer receives an email stating that they could not complete 5 projects that had to be reassigned and the account is closed.
The writer could not complete 3 projects because of website glitches. The writer will not get paid for any work completed and submitted from the month, yet the customer still received the work and Company A was still paid for the work.
Is this kosher?
Should the write not be compensated for the work that was completed?
I'd have to read the actual TOS and/or writer's contract involved before I could comment.
