California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
I think she may claim that I misrepresented myself during the interview. There isn't a shred of truth to that but I believe in her mind that is what happened. Will that help he case?
My total compensation package including benefits is $128,000. That is what's stated in the contract. The way I see it she has a few options, 1. Let us work it out and allow me to continue working there and trying to improve my performance in that one area; 2. buy me out; or 3. tell me to stay home and just keep sending the paychecks. Can I insist on the third option or do I have to take what she offers as long as it includes the remaining compensation owed which is about $106,000?
Okay, thanks for the help.
