Hi, First off, I have not found any other site with as much great advice as this one. So, thank you! I apologize in advance for the length. A LLC and I both signed their Independent Contractor Agreement and NDA on October 26, 2011. It stated that the contract expired on a 60-day written notice. A few other highlights in the contract are: 1. Contractor shall provide written content for corporate website, and all written content needed by Company. *No other specifications such as dates, timeframes, etc. 2. (a)The Company agrees to pay the Contractor a sum of $2,000 as a retainer upon signing of this agreement. (b)Company will pay the Contractor an additional monthly retainer of $2,000 on the first day of each month until termination of this contract. 3. Either party may terminate this contract in writing in the following instancesa)Non-payment to the Contractor by the Company as agreed upon in this contract, and failure to remedy within 30 days from the date the payment is due. 4. The parties agree that any dispute which may arise from this agreement will be referred to an impartial and lawful arbitration body whose decision will be binding upon both parties. To sum it up, I have received only one check for $1,000, and that was considered half of the retainer. I asked about the payments, and was presented with a new contract. It was the exact same terms, except, with different payment agreements. I did not sign it, but was asked to continue work. They now owe me a balance of $7,000. That is not including fees incurred, which I was told through email, "would be taken care of." Likewise, pursuing this has cost me time, other jobs, financial strain, and the threat of my livelihood now. Approximately 3 weeks ago, I sent an email to all the partners and project manager with: (1) parts of the contract that were breached, along with a reason (2) a detailed timeline including exchanges of instructions, updates, emails, etc., starting from day one (3) a list of all work I have provided, and (4) the outstanding balance, with how late each payment is individually. I ended the email saying I would like to resolve this immediately. Also, upon doing so, I would gladly turn in the remaining work so they could launch their new sites. Since sending, I am being ignored by the entire company. The worst of it is, their sites are only accessible by their members, that I suddenly cannot access. So, I have no clue if they're using my content right now or not. What should I do from here? Again, I'm sorry for this being so long. I just wanted to be sure you had all the details. Thank you so much in advance!
