Guy who runs a 501c3 charity refuses to pay me for 28 hours worked?
Did some work for a guy who owns a 501c3 childrens safety charity in Vegas. Basically fundraising. He agreed to a flat hourly rate. Everything was fine the first week. He paid me for the first week. At the end of week two he didn’t pay me. Into week three he hasn’t paid me. I quit. Now he sends me rambling accusatory paranoid massively abusive emails going on for pages. I told him I quit but I expect to be paid the 28 hours I had worked. he claims there is no way I worked these hours he isn’t going to pay me a dime either. The man is nuts. I live in Los Angeles btw. What should I do? I have said to him both via email and phone ( he is dodging my calls now surprise) that he needs to pay me for hours worked and have politely told him I want to keep this on a friendly level that this isn’t worth it for him to withhold paying me. What else should I do? I have known the guy a few years and basically I think he’s on drugs and is crazy… The emails he sends don’t even make sense. He’s one of those guys who just yells and screams about everything…
