Typically, freelancers wait for the client to end a contract, make any final payments, and leave feedback.

To end your contract

  1. Click on the My Jobs tab
  2. Find the contract you want to end
  3. Select the Job Details (...) link
  4. And click End Contract

For fixed-price contracts, funds in escrow will be automatically released back to the client if you end the contract.

Once you end a contract

  • The system will lock your Work Diary and you can no longer record time.
  • Your client will be billed as normal for any hours logged.
  • You and your client may leave feedback.
  • You may offer a refund for any payments made within the last 180 days.

Reminder: All Upwork users have the ability to end a contract at any time, though it is always best if everyone is aware of what's going on and in agreement about it.
