I'm a freelance web developer with a few clients -- one of them (currently my biggest one), has a project with a client of their own, and I'm working on this project and communicating regularly with their client.
MY client has asked me to tell THEIR client, if they ask, that I'm full-time. This is definitely not true, if only because I usually put in around 20 hrs/wk on this client/project, and so this rubs me the wrong way as it feels deceptive (even if the situation never comes up).
Am I looking at a red flag here? I've already decided that I won't tell their client I'm f/t, and instead refer any questions about my work-status to my client. But I want to make sure I don't end up in any compromising situations, legally or otherwise. Are there any extra steps I should be taking here to protect myself in some kind of worst-case scenario? Or is this not an uncommon thing and my concerns are overblown?
