I've never seen terms like that from any contracting agency I've worked through.  Right now I'm invoicing every 2 weeks, and they pay within 2 weeks.  Actually, it usually takes no more than 6 work days for them to cut the check - that 'within 2 weeks' includes time for delivery.

Net plus 30 may be good terms if you have a big enough cushion that you can keep the bills paid and buy food and ever-increasing gas while you wait.  But if you can't afford to wait that long, you can't afford to.  Try renegotiating while you continue to hunt for work elsewhere.

Hi,

I just received a contract for a six- to eight-week gig on a 1099 that states these payment terms: "$X per hour billed bi-weekly and payable net 30 days." I am very uncomfortable with that delay. Not only do I need money sooner than six weeks, but,  potentially, I could complete my contract before seeing any money--and who knows whether they will pay.

Previously, when working on a 1099, I was payed within two days.

I believe that in Massachusetts, permanent employees must be paid bi-weekly, but are there any rules governing the timeliness of payment to consultants/contractors?

Does anyone have any insight about this issue?

Thanks, Trish
