For the purposes of tax classification and for certain other legal purposes, Editors on the WordAgents platform are classified as 1099 contractors.
The payment of the fees and expenses is contingent upon timely and full performance of services to WordAgents. The Editor warrants and represents to provide services to the best of their ability.
The fees may be subject to applicable tax withholding laws. The Editor will not be entitled to any royalties, residual payments or any other payments arising out of the services.
In no event shall WordAgents bee responsible for any of Editor’s operational costs (including, without limitation, Editor’s payment processing or bank fees). It is your explicit responsibility to claim, maintain, and pay your own individualized taxes.
Timesheets will be generated automatically based upon time tracking reports. Time must be documented automatically, not via manual entry. WordAgents reserve the right to approve or reject manual time requests that do not adhere to WordAgent’s time tracking requirements.
We make payments to our Editors on a bi-weekly basis via our internal payment platform and via direct deposit to your bank account, which you are required to provide as part of the onboarding process. You are responsible for maintaining a working payment method, and at no time will WordAgents be responsible or liable if the method you provide for payment is not accurate or up-to-date. Payments to proofreaders are generally issued on the 10th and 25th of the month for work completed in arrears. What this means is that you are paid for work after it has been accepted, approved, and delivered to our clients.
Your completed work between August 1st and August 15th, is generally paid for on August 25th.
Your completed work between August 16th and August 31st, is generally paid for on September 10th.
*These are just examples above and actual pay-out dates are subject to change with notice by WordAgents. Additionally, occasional holidays or bank closures may affect payment times slightly.*
**Further, all payments will be deemed final and paid in full unless the Editor notifies WordAgents of the details of the claimed accounting error within fifteen (15) days of the date appearing on the WordAgents issued payment. **
