Hi. This question is for ZDNlaw.
Hi sir. First of all, thanks for the previous answer. I am very satisfied with it.
I would like to let you know I did send the letter to my last employer. I sent it just the way you suggested. I know the boss already received it and made some changes in the restaurant. She is telling everyone that wasn't on payroll
(not getting paid besides tips) to get social securities (fake ones) because she wants to put everyone on payroll.
I want to try to settle with her now. You suggested me say "I am willing to settle my claims against you for assault and for unpaid wages
for $________________, which you may pay to me either in one bulk payment or in weekly payments of $________.
If you agree to this, I will agree to sign a release of my claims and will agree to confidentiality regarding you illegal labor
If you do not agree to this within 10 days of your receipt of this correspondence, I will initiate legal proceedings against you.".
Do you know how much is worth asking for?
If you were in my shoes would you get a lawyer or do it yourself? And would this cass interest lawyers?
