The nature of the contract was an Employment Agreement.
It was created by my boss-to-be. She typed her name and underneath wrote: Electronic Signature.
It was a simple agreement, but I never actually agreed my signing the agreement.
I've been working for 2 months and have delivered ALL that I promised to this point. The business has come to a hault due to funding, financial and fundraising practices are suspect to say the least, and we still do not have an actual payroll structure. Up to this point, I have been paid. However, I will have to claim this as a 1099. I've never actually been an official employee as it's a start-up and we don't even have any other employees, an office, and the space is still very much under construction. I wish to sever all ties without any further compensation or communication as things have been completely uncomfortable.
no, but i'm just naive to all of this. my would-be boss is completely unprofessional, reactionary, and has not professional context for these things. i'm picturing her threatening me, at least for a second so i wanted to ask. part of our agreement was gratuities (we're not even close to being open so that's out), i was to have full benefits (as we do not even have an existing Payroll service, there has been NO talk of a package or anything presented as of yet), and at the end she wrote:
"This agreement may be terminated if both parties agree in writing, or if either party engages in behavior that damages personal or business reputations or if either party engages in illegal activities on Tiki Iniki premisis."
She has paid up to this point. However, aside from that, not a single term has been met and there's no sign of a structure anytime soon.
