I am owed a paycheck for PT work by a small business currently planning to file for bankruptcy. I worked for this company as a FT employee for over 5 years, then left to pursue higher education. A few years later, this summer, the owner asked me to cover for him PT while he went on vacation, was completely out of touch, and now blames me for losing a client while he was away and our professional relationship is destroyed. He now refused to pay me for my time and I feel I am owed about $600 as we had agreed ahead of time. All this was under the table, verbal, and I was not an official employee during this time. Is there any way I can get paid for the time I worked?
