If it were me, I'd see what Employer A offered as an hourly rate. If it is
lower than the rate for a similar job, I would request that they match the
higher rate, regardless of your previous rate there. I wouldn't accept
anything lower than my previous rate, and would ask for 20% above that rate
as you will be paying higher taxes as a freelancer than as an employee.

I would not mention anything to Employer B at this time. However, I would
try to find out about the possibility of extending the contract.

A lot depends too on the number of hours Employer A is offering. If there
is any way to work it out that you can do both - for at least as long as
Employer B is willing to keep you going - I'd try that too. If you could
offer A +/-30 hours and B +/-10 hours a week ... that might make it better
for both places as each would be looking at slightly fewer hours ...


Thanks, John.

I think there is a possibility of brokering something as you mention in the
last paragraph. It had come to mind, and I will recommend this path if the
situation needs some resolution.

One thing needs clarification. With employer A I would not be a freelancer.
I would be a temporary worker, and I am pretty sure there would not be any
additional benefits.
