    Cool overworked?

    Hi,

    Is the following passage correct?

    If they are overworked you will be kept informed in advance before any payment.

    It doesn't make sense.

    If they have too much work, they will tell before you pay. (so there is no risk to lose money)

    Re: overworked?

    It still doesn't make sense. If who is overworked? Who is paying? Who is speaking this sentence?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: overworked?

    Perhaps you mean

    'If they work overtime they will tell you, so that they will not be underpaid'.

    Re: overworked?

    It's a webdesigner who is usually paid before he does the job. But if he (the webdesigner) is too busy, he will tell the client before, so the client would not pay for an undone job. The client will have to wait until the webdesigner has more time.

    There is no need to say anything. The clients will find out that the webdesigner cannot take on any more work at present when the webdesigner informs them. There is no question of any payment until both sides have agreed that the work will be done.
