How do I file a dispute against a client?

Filing a dispute as an independent contractor is not available at this time. Currently, only Clients can file a dispute, and disputes can only be filed for hourly jobs.

We know that misunderstandings between a client and an independent contractor may happen as they work on a project. We suggest discussing any misunderstanding with the parties involved via our messaging system. If you need help communicating with each other, you can always contact our Support team for assistance at

While you are unable to file a dispute, Work For Impact would like to ensure that you are still protected by implementing several payment protection policies. These policies are beneficial both for the independent contractor and the client.
