If the shift ends early

Sometimes, businesses send freelancers home before the end of their shift. If this happens, the business is expected to pay for the length of the original shift (up to four hours) to the freelancers who accepted and showed up at the shift on time. (For example, if your eight-hour shift ends early, you will pay for four hours; or if your three-hour shift ends early, the business will pay the freelancer for three hours.)

Please note: This payment is not required if the freelancer is sent home early for showing up in the wrong attire, arriving late, incurring a disciplinary action, etc.
