We work in a diverse and multi-cultural environment. Though we have individuals who work with us remotely, from different countries and different time zones, we always manage to deliver as one single team. We are an equal opportunity employer.
Given below are a common set of instructions, terms & conditions for all our associates, employees, experts, freelancers & partners. It is important that you familiarize yourselves with these guidelines. By working on our assignments & projects, you agree to abide by the following instructions, terms & conditions:
- Quality of work is non-negotiable. We trust & expect our experts to deliver only high-quality, well-researched & original work.

Penalties may range from a portion of the expert's fees to even 100% of the fees as well as getting blacklisted with us and all our affiliates, partners & franchisees. Tekzilver reserves the right to decide the quantum of penalties.
- We have zero tolerance for plagiarism & copied content. Please write your own stuff or don't write for us.

- If you have accepted an assignment, it is your responsibility to complete it and submit it back to us on time.

You will also be blacklisted by our affiliates, partners and franchisees.
- After you have submitted an assignment, our customers may ask for clarifications, corrections, revisions or updates which has to be done and submitted back to us on priority until which the assignment will be considered incomplete.

- Working from home is a privilege. Remember, there are thousands of individuals who do not even have a job. Please utilize your time constructively & responsibly. It also reflects the trust we put in you. If you cannot focus on your work 100% while working from home, this is not a good job option for you.
- Our primary mode of communication is through the phone. We expect all our experts, partners, affiliates and franchisees to be reachable on their mobile phones. Though we may try to contact you through other channels (like WhatsApp, SMS or email) in case of an urgency, we prefer to speak with you on the phone rather than texting/chatting with you.
- If we have a problem communicating with you, for example, if we are consistently unable to reach you on the phone for whatever reason, we cannot work with you. It is your responsibility to make sure we can easily reach you on the phone any time.
- Emails, Chat & SMS communications we send to you are deemed received when sent.
- If you have expertise in multiple domains, please let us know so we can send you more work.
- Do not wait until the last moment and try to complete the assignments in a hurry. All assignments go through internal QA checks and will be rejected if what you write does not meet our quality standards or our customers’ requirements. No payouts will be made for rejected assignments.
