I was ghost writer for a writing service and the owner has been behind on my payments for a few weeks. Recently, I was fired from the company. I was late on an assignment so the owner deactivated my account. He didn't email or anything. So, I emailed him asking when can I expect payment for all of the work I did with the company. It took several emails before the guy would respond. His response was he would pay me when the work was approved by clients. Well, I know that's a lie because this was work that was turned in a couple of weeks ago. The work was supposed to be paid every week which it wasn't. Also, I haven't received a payment at all this week. While working for the company, the owner had a history of paying whenever he felt like it. Also, I was getting ready to leave the company because I needed some consistency in pay. For example, if you did several assignments then he would pay you for one assignment at a time instead of just giving you all of the money. Also, it could take from a two weeks to a month to get paid for some assignments. I want to know what can I do about getting my money from this guy. What are some steps I can take?
