Health issues require a reasonable work-life balance
I'm a freelance writer/producer. I'm being considered for an ongoing remote gig as a senior writer that pays competitively and promises "20+ hours a week". I'm fast, efficient, and experienced -- usually faster than younger writers because I spent 25 years in broadcast and print newsrooms. For the past 8 years I've been a freelance content creator. But, when I researched employee reviews on Glassdoor, I found that both positive and negative reviews mentioned the company tends to demand 50+ hours a week. They are actively courting me and I really like the gig, but I cannot physically work beyond 30 hours every week or I'll be very ill, compromising my peak performance -- the main reason they're aggressively pursuing me. Again, I'm faster than most and can knock out articles and scripts and I can work more hours on occasion but, for my health's sake, I can't do it regularly. I want to ensure they don't give me what I need in lip service and fudge on the deal they advertised on the job description. I would like to put my maximum work hours requirement in writing. How do I hold them to their job description of 20+ hours?
