Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
I am very sorry to hear about this. If you do not have a written contract then a non compete obligation / non -solicitation would not apply here.
Obviously, you under under an obligation of confidentiality as a matter of common law.
If you need to recover any money, just let me know and I will tell you how to start the process.
Let me know please if you have any follow up questions, I will be happy to help.
Just send a written demand when the funds are due and state that should she delay your payment you will consider issuing a clam in the small claims court.
And if she ignores your demand, come back here and I will let you know what you can do next.
Sounds like a plan. Best regards
