Thank you for following up and letting me know. Please include this email as well with more details for your attorney for your decision on compensation.
1. Consideration provided by Berlin Capitol Investment, the offeror;
A signed letter of intent/ job offer, A verbal agreement and offer to work together, Provision of leads and compensation as stated below (taken from job description in job posting), Training beginning on May 1st and begin working in office, Partner Log In to web site to learn properties.
What's on offer :
Excellent commission structure – in excess of €100k / annum.
Salary or freelance basis.
2. Requests made by Berlin Capitol Investment partners upon job offer, March 19 2013;
Although my offer was to start being trained and working from the office May 1st, my services were to start immediately upon this date of offer and acceptance. Requirements were learning project listed as; 106, 121, 108, and 37 with an intense focus on 108. Also to immediately begin to learn Berlin Mitte area and all selling points for clients, to aquire correct work permit, and to shop the competition.
3. Consideration provided by David Gellatly, the offeree;
Upon acceptance of job offer, valuable time spent meeting immediate requirements from Berlin Capitol Investment partners, both researches properties on the Web Site provided, spending time touring Berlin Mitte, studying the project layouts and selling point. Also valuable time and money to acquire the correct work permit. Starting May 1st 2013 I was to begin selling and following up with leads.
4. Other damages suffered to David Gellatly;
Refusal of other job offers due to accepting job offer from Berlin Capitol Investment, Cancellation of paid job placement, Loss of time and amount of time it will take to make up for a new job search.
Based on our agreement beginning on March 19, 2013 and breach of contract notice taking place on April 5 2013, this means I was providing the required services for 18 days as requested at time of job offer. Based on the stated annual income minimum of 100k, the time is valued by the company at 4932.00.
Based on my experience, my minimum income requirements would be 6000.00 per month. To make up for one month loss of pay for turned down job offer, or possible termination of contract by Berlin capital investment after 30 days at the annual pay in their job description, it would be 8333.00.
Other possible costs to Berlin Capitol Investment will be court costs, attorney fees, and punitive damages which I will seek if unable to settle, on top of the compensatory damages which the company should be ethically inclined to provide. As well as negative online reviews if the company fails to comply with ethics. I will obviously be willing to sign a release of my right to sue if settle out of court and not having to waste any more of my time for poor practices and breach of contract issues, if a reasonable offer is made and agreed to. There is obvious consideration made by both parties, which constitutes a valid contract, and documentation that provides evidence of this, both via email and verbally.
This Breach of contract requires compensation according to § 280 BGB. It has cost me a great deal for this breach and rescinding the offer after I met requirements of the partners. I thank you for your time in resolving this matter and hope we can reach an understanding and agreement outside of the court room. But I will pursue any means necessary to recover my damages. The date I have given and will follow through with to receive notice of compensation is April 24, 2013.
Again, Allyce and Thomas, it was a pleasure meeting with you and I am sorry you decided not to pursue a working relationship any further. I hope you understand where I am coming from with these expectation, and feel like these are fair requirements for my time. As I informed you, I turned down other offers for your promise that now I do not have the option for. I have been very successful in this industry, and spent a great deal of my time meeting your requests, and I am sure you do not feel like it would be an ethical decision trying to steal this time and other damages from me. Therefore, I wish you the best of luck in the future of your business. I invested all in the promise you made, and now have to start all over.
