Terms of Service
Welcome to the WorkerMee community. WorkerMee is based on the premise that people generally want to help their neighbors. The WorkerMee platform aims to bolster access to services and career development opportunities by connecting neighbors to get tasks done. We envision a future where stable and resilient communities flourish by working together.
Be Respectful - Use respectful and appropriate language both in writing and in person.
Be Supportive - People you hire to do a job may not have experience or don't know the way you want the task done. Show them what you need done and give them constructive feedback to allow them to learn and do.
Be Responsible - Taking a job means someone is counting on you, and others may be counting on them. If you take a job, do your best to show up on time, do the tasks correctly, and complete the tasks to the employers' satisfaction.
Be Communicative - Use the anonymous e-mail system to work out the job details and stay in communication. If a minor is doing the work, keep their parent or guardian in CC on every communication. If plans change, let all parties know as soon as possible.
Be Safe - Follow best practices to safeguard yourself both online and in person. Do not post or accept jobs that seem unsafe, or accept jobs you are unqualified for. Clarify what safety measures are necessary before the job and who will provide any protective gear.
Be a Whistleblower - Should you notice inappropriate activity or language on any area of WorkerMee, promptly contact admin with the problem so it may be removed or resolved. firstname.lastname@example.org
