Should we provide an increment to full time freelancers?
From India, Ahmedabad
Dear Colleague,
Normally for Freelancers any increase in their professional charges are determined by the Contract between the organization and such freelancers. In their case as per my knowledge " increment" not not a concept relevant like for regular permanent employees.

But as you mentioned they are full time freelancers for you. Hence if your business leaders really want to motivate the freelancers purely it is your discretion to revise their professional fee upward as per the allowed norms of your business. But have full control on such cost escalations as later on it should not grow as a demand.

Judicious call to be taken to motivate, keep the freelancers work for your with all dedication as well as considering the cost of living escalations, call may be taken positively but with after complete thoughts form Business Leaders considering long term.

Freelancers are a party to a contract between employer and him. The terms are decided mutually between them. There is no law for that. Freelancer demands and Employer agrees. If there is no agreement, there is no work.
When freelancer has worked to the satisfactioin of employer, why he should not demand increase in his emoluments? If his services are not satisfactory, employer will remove freelancer. It is both ways.
In my own case, with one employer, the business was down so he requested me to reduce my charges, which I agreed. In another case, employer liked my work, and when I requested hike in my charges, he gladly increased it. He even was telling his Managers,that after a long time he got a good consultant. So there is nothing wrong in varying the charges of freelancer, either upward or downword.
