Taskers Community Guidelines

View Poster Guidelines

We're passionate about connecting people ready to work with people who need work done. As Airtasker continues to grow it's important that the community follows guidelines that reflect our values and standards of behaviour. We work hard to enforce these guidelines so that we can maintain our authenticity and transparency, so that everyone has an enjoyable experience.

Airtasker is here to help facilitate a reliable, safe and successful environment and is here to help resolve issues should they arise. In return, we ask for your cooperation and timely response to the Airtasker team. If you suspect a member has violated any Community Guidelines, please report it to Airtasker ASAP. Use the Report as Inappropriate feature located within the task or comments section, or go to Contact Us.

This document will continue to change as we grow and continue to think about what's best for the Airtasker community.

5. Accountability and your reputation

You remain accountable for both your behaviour on the Airtasker platform and the provision and outcome of each task you are assigned to. Your responsibilities include:

  • 5.1 Fulfilment of task requirements

    Taskers are expected to provide the services as agreed with the Poster.

  • 5.2 Managing other Taskers involved

    The Tasker assigned to the task is responsible for the actions of any Taskers they arrange to assist them in providing the services agreed with the Poster. If the Tasker assigned chooses to subcontract others to perform the services agreed with the Poster, the Tasker must gain the Poster’s consent. The Tasker assigned to the task must also ensure that all Taskers assisting them have an Airtasker user account.

    For tasks completed in-person, you must attend to check that the task requirements are met even if you requested other Taskers to assist with the task.

  • 5.3 The experience you provide for other members

    Taskers must not repetitively provide poor experiences for other members of the Airtasker Community.
