Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am afraid that an oral agreement of this nature, future payment upon happening of a condition, is not valid pursuant to the statute of frauds. This type of agreement must be in writing signed by the parties to be enforceable in court.
If you put the request on on paper and he signs the agreement then it would be enforceable, but until the agreement is on paper and signed, you have no agreement to the terms of this agreement. He does not have to disclose the agreement to the buyer, but once it is in writing and signed it is enforceable between you and the owner.
I am sorry to hear you had issues with the site. As the experts on this site are not employees, we too have such issues and we know how you feel.
If you bring this up to the purchaser, as there is no valid written contract, if it impairs or hurts the sale in any way you could be sued for tortious interference with contractual relations and the company could see damages from you if it causes them to lose a sale.
Thank you for your reply.So that is what I said above, if you have neither, you can ask for employment.
You can initiate contact, but they may refuse to discuss with you because of the NDA.
Thank you for your reply.
No it would not be inappropriate for you to ask them about employment, even though their NDA may prevent them from doing so right now.
