There’s been a lot of very useful discussion in the sub for what to do if you lost, or are expecting to lose your job. Many of these posts provide links to awesome resources for financial assistance if you’ve been laid off.
However, there is a demographic, of which I am a member, of people who aren’t technically employed by anyone. Freelancers, students, and self-employed people. I, for example, do contracting under my own name. I have no employer, and can’t prove hours worked during the past 12 months, so some things like EI are unavailable to me. I imagine this situation is shared by many here.
Could we get a thread going of advice for people who are expecting to slowly lose clients and business over the coming months? Thank you all for contributing!
