Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good evening. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
If you were an employee, then your role as employee is separate and distinct from your ownership. As such, you are entitled to be treated with the same priority as all other employees. if the other employees were paid their unused vacation time before any repayment of loans from partners, then, as an employee, you too are entitled to the same payment. You can be discriminated against in your role as employee simply because you also happen to be an owner. Think of it this way....suppose this involved a public company such as Apple...just because an employee happened to own stock in the company, the company could not discriminate against that employee. Your situation is exactly the same.
