I had to cancel a gig. Does this mean I can’t earn Instawork Gold?
We understand that sometimes you need to cancel. As outlined in our policies, we take going against your commitment to making it to a gig very seriously however, if you’d like to appeal a suspension or deactivation, please submit an appeal by navigating to the "Gigs" tab in the app and tapping into "View details" of the gig that had resulted in account change. Provide your reasoning and attach relevant documentation as evidence (e.g. doctor's note, proof of car repair, jury summons). Please allow a couple of weeks for us to review and respond to your appeal. If we approve the appeal, we won’t count it as a cancellation and it will not count as a gig completed.
