I'm need of your legal advice desperately.
I am an I.T. professional for last 15 years.Four months ago, I engaged into a software implementation project into this manufacturing company. the IT head of the company was my former boss from the previous company I've worked for the last 7 years. Mr. IT head left the previous company I worked for, 2 years before I did. I left the company last year.
Since Mr. IT head know each other, he asked for my service as project consultant 4 months ago since I am currently out of work. I immediately agreed for the chance to earn. I have work immediately on the project even though all agreements are 'verbal' between me and Mr. IT head, and also involve is his current IT administrator guy. I have deployed the project since December last year, and even conducted training to users at least on 2x occasions, I've been reporting to the office for the last 4 months and uses all the office facilities (emails, computers) and even have my company ID. all discussions on the project are also done via emails..
BUT we did not have any signed contract for this project. AND currently 4 months have past, I was not given any monetary payments for all my services/work done. I started asking Mr. IT head since November when I will be getting my cheque payment, he claim last November that it was supposedly for release already. BUT until now I got zero(0) payment.
Attorney, may I request for legal advise for my rights to claim what is due of me? All I want is this manufacturing company to pay me the months of service I already rendered.
thank you very much.
