I have a very bad experience working as a freelancer accounts assistant under an accounting firm in Ipoh (Ackenting Management Services). The way they running their business is they will look for customer and assign a job to a freelancer who will have to work on site at their client’s place. Before I started my job the boss informed me how much they offered me in per hour rate and once I completed 20 hours work I will get my pay.
In my case, I started my job beginning of April and by end of April I have completed my 20 hours work at their client place. After I reported my time sheet of the WIP and asked for my pay the boss told me that their company procedure is giving out pay every 20th of the month which I have not been informed earlier. I sense something is wrong and I refuse to continue the job until I get my pay.
Today is already 22nd of May and yet there is no sign of they are going to pay for my April wages! They just give empty promises.
