You as a talent can only make an expense during a gig if it has been approved in writing by the client (certificates must be in the job advertisement or appear in the chat). If you do not get hold of the client, you must contact Upgig to get the outlay approved.
We urge the employer to pay as much as possible in advance to avoid unnecessary expenses.
Expenditure as part of the job description
You as a giants have the right to dismiss your expenses as long as it is not a requirement in the job description. If your spend isn't listed in the ad, you have the right to decide if you want to make your own.
Reimbursement of expenses
The client can choose to replace you directly in connection with the assignment, or choose that we invoice them for the outlay. If the client chooses an invoice, you as a supplier are responsible for reporting the outlay to us together with the client's approval. Upgig then decides what is an approved basis and when payment is made to you.
Here's how you report an outlay
Scan / take photos on the receipt and send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Enter your name in the email as well as where you worked and the reason for the posting.
Typical expenses that can occur are refueling of borrowed car, purchase of unforeseen materials at events or maybe for a train ticket back to the gig's starting place. Please note that trips to and from work are never approved expenses, but only trips that are required within the scope of the assignment, unless otherwise stated in the job description.
