Hired an editor to do a project. I had a very loose contract written with basic payrates, due dates and duties the editor would be responsible for. I was paying in increments based on due date. However the work pretty muched came to a stop due to the editor's schedule and I have to realistically look for someone else. Not much to nothing was accomplished and I am out a couple hardrives and what I had payed the editor. Is there a standard for project based work that if an editor does not finish the project finances should be returned. I blew a bit of my budget on this person but there is nothing in my contract I had written up that says either way that money should be returned if project is not completed (I assumed it would be completed). I would very much like some advice or what the basic industry standard would be for hiring per project. At least it would be good to know for the next time around.
Editors and Contract work... need help
