Does anyone pass the merchant/credit card fees to their clients when the client pays online?

We do. We prefer payment by wire or check, but we allow payment by cc with a surcharge to cover.

We do and call it a convenience charge.

A few states do not allow you to pass along the fees to customers. Like one of the commenters above, I treat it as a cost of doing business.

Same as above

Thank you, does the merchant pass it automatically? Or do you calculate the estimated fees and add it to their bill?

Our website instructions say that if paying online, add X% to the invoice amount. Otherwise it sits as an open balance that we need to bug the client about.

Always

I consider it a cost of doing business. Frankly it is just as convenient for me to get paid immediately than wait for a check and have to take it to the bank.

I work for the government agency that enforces the no CC surcharge statute in my state. I've actually had the attorney ethics commission ask me if attorneys can charge a surcharge. Funny thing is, because the legisture put the law in a consumer finance act, it only is illegal to charge a surcharge to a consumer. Based on the ethics commission's questions, I believe the attorney complaint was dropped due to that.

Since FMLA is unpaid anyway, I would imagine most employers would at least let you have unpaid time off.

Crispin has layoffs a couple of weeks ago. They announced it at a virtual town hall. The CEO did the usual “good people, hard to see them go” routine.
