I’m sharing a story from a freelancer whose client asked them to submit the work they’d done for a project that had missed various deadlines… and then asked the freelancer to pay the company damages for the work being overdue. I’ll highlight what this freelancer could have done differently to potentially have a better outcome, and the role insurance would play in this situation. The information in this podcast is for general guidance and is not legal advice.
