freelancer Who is a freelancer?

The so-called mercenaries, ready to fight for anyone who pays them.
Today, a freelancer is a person who works on a non-contract basis and does not have a written commitment to the employer.

A number of professions rarely have full employment. This category includes: teleworker, free journalist, translator, photographer, designer, web designer, programmer.

Often this kind of profession becomes an addition.

But everywhere there are pluses and minuses.

Freelancer and law

Freelancers appeared when "parasites" disappeared. During the Soviet period, many worthy creative people passed through this article. Today the state recognizes the legitimate voluntary non-employment of citizens.

Now, when freelancers are in the law, this is not a state affair (and not a criminal one), but a private matter.

Everywhere there are pluses and minuses.


  • Good earnings.
  • Own to yourself.
  • Flexible working time.
  • Are not dependent on one employer.


  • Responsibility for the work done, not the same time.
  • No one provides work.
  • It is necessary to delve into all the problems of the customer.
  • The instability of earnings.
  • The possibility of deception.
