Don't get FIRED for Bartering Massage! Read this NOW!
by Kris Kelley
Here's a thought that just came up in regards to bartering for massage.
If you work for someone else, you'd better get WRITTEN permission to barter your services. Especially if you are benefitting from the barter and your employer is not.
Here's an example:
Let's say you work for someone else and you charge $80.00 for a massage. You split this income with your employer 50/50. You receive $40.00 and the owner receives $40.00.
You work it out with your client to barter this payment for something YOU will receive.
Now, you are receiving 100% of the benefit and your employer receives nothing!
It would be a shame to get fired over this!
Obviously if you work for yourself you can do as you please ;)
Use this example for your own personal situation and see if bartering is a good idea or a bad idea.
See the previous post on "Is bartering even legal" as well. You may need to check with the local laws to see what is required of you to perform bartering legally.
