Originally all my invoices were submitted on the 20th of each month and paid on the last working day. However I received and email at the beginning of April to say that due to the company not being paid by a contractor I would not receive payment for my invoice on the 20th April until the end of May and would then be 30 days thereafter for subsequent invoices.
My concern is that due to the nature of the emails and basically slanderous content I can not continue but am concerned I will not be paid. She has already questioned my last Invoice even though it was in the same format as the previous 10. Originally when I sent it she did not ask for more information but since I have received these awful emails she is now questioning it.
But what would be reasonable as since I invoiced her on the 20th April I have completed more work?
Ok, so If I have a conversation with her on Thursday and state I do not want to continue due to the content of the emails I have received am I right in saying that as I have no contract I can cease all work with immediate effect and expect payment for all work completed?
She is insistent we have a telephone conversation and has sent me an agenda. I am going to tell her I am going to record the conversation and then back it up in writing. She is saying she does not want me to leave but I know it is because she does not have anyone else to continue with some of the work as you have to be occupationally competent and could cost her in the region of 18k if she does not find someone to replace me.
The way she is carrying on and sending emails saying "I hope you lose friends and future work" not only will I be taking her to court for the money but for bullying and harassment.
