A pretty common dilemma and answerable, in fact it has 11 answers already. No idea why it was closed and I think it should be re-opened.

  • Funny. This seemed like a Freelancer question, and not at all like a Workplace question to me. – Joe Strazzere Sep 13 '20 at 22:29

    @JoeStrazzere the problem is applicable to a business as well, just a matter of scale. – Kilisi Sep 14 '20 at 0:03
  • I suppose. Still seems odd. If this were written from the point of view of an Accounts Payable clerk, would it remain closed? – Joe Strazzere Sep 14 '20 at 10:40
  • @JoeStrazzere I don't see it as an issue that could apply to an AP clerk. But it's one that many small businesses would have had at some point. I have it right now with the COVID 19 lockdowns hurting one whole industry I service.I have contracts so could demand payments, but I'm in for the long run, helping the client get through is worth more in the long term in many ways. It's more a small business issue dealing with small clients than a larger established one. – Kilisi Sep 14 '20 at 11:38
  • To me it's more a "how do I conduct business" issue than a "how do I navigate the workplace" issue. No matter. It's done. – Joe Strazzere Sep 14 '20 at 15:58
  • @JoeStrazzere you might be right, but many things are in grey areas or overlap. I just answer anything I think I have useful insight on, don't worry about much else. – Kilisi Sep 14 '20 at 16:02

    Makes sense to me. – Joe Strazzere Sep 14 '20 at 16:18
