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. Donya Gordon
