A: Does your promissory note talk about what happens if he doesn't pay? Does the law of NY apply to your agreement? If so, you can sue in NY court. In order to get a firm answer on what to do, I would need to review the promissory note and see what it says. You can connect with me and engage my services through Contracts Counsel.
A: Do you have proof that you worked for this person? You can hire a lawyer to call to talk with them. You can also send a demand letter seeking the payment you believe you are owned. You can also report the matter to necessary authorities. Hope that helps

A: My suggestion is to request an employment agreement that outlines your role, responsibility and payment. If that doesn't work, draft your own agreement and ask them to sign your document. Last resort, hire a lawyer to talk to them about your missing payment.
All the best. If you need additional resource, you can find me on the Contracts Counsel website.
A: Signing a non compete or a non disclosure is not in and of itself illegal. In NY and in most states a non compete are individually accessed based on the language and scope (how long and what the non compete entails) and is generally examined by courts under a watchful eye as long as its not too restrictive or burdensome and would not prevent the free movement of goods and services. In order to advise you on your agreement, I would need to review it to advise you. If you need additional assistance, you may contact me directly on Contracts Counsel to engage my services.
