The great thing about a TOS which everyone violates, is that it can be arbitrarily enforced, for any unspoken actual reason.



Learning the best tricks from government law making.


It would be nice if there was an "easy" way of proving this, and regulations making void TOS the company does not enforce in a majority of cases.


Sort of, if you have the $$$ and the damages are worth chasing in reality you would take them to court. Demonstrating that everyone else is routinely breaking the TOS, and that the company knew about it, would be a very strong piece of evidence in your case


It really wouldn't, at least with the laws as they exist now. Upwork just says "private company, at-will service, voluntary association", and they win.


Trouble is, almost nobody cares to spare that much money, least of all the typical gig economy servant.
