On July, 2009, I did a translation work for a employer in a freelancer's site. I finished the project on time and also gave him a discount on the price that I charged. I trusted on him and sent the final translation and in a separate e-mail an invoice for my services. He didn't answer my e-mails and didn't pay me either! Until yesterday, I received the big surprise of his payment, almost 3 months after I finished the project! He sent me a real good feedback for my services, I mean, I works real hard on this project and finished on time, so he didn't have the right to complaint about my services and honesty. I have to send a feedback to this employer, what should I do? Put a negative feedback even if he paid me almost three months after I completed the project? If I put a positive feedback, I am afraid that other freelancers could suffer the same bad experience that I had with this employer. I want to me honest and fair as possible.

How about contact the employer and ask him an explanation for the delay, which you also tell him you'll quote in your feedback ..

I was thinking about that but since he didn't answer my e-mails before, I don't think that he will answer me and more less give me an explanation.

That's for you have to tell him you want to write a honest feedback and you'll include the payment delay .. but you want to be fair, so you will wait for (.. days) his answer to give him a chance to have a nice feedback. If he will not answer , wait one-two days more after the term you give then publish a neutral feedback wit the exact reality. He asked, received, sent the payment as was the deal but with this delay. You may think maybe the one is not a usual emploayer, maybe he use freelancer services only very rare or maybe this was only one time .. but give him a chance. This is the way I would do, anyway.
