Just want to ask for comments or suggestions regarding my situation.
2006, i was hired as a web developer of a travel agency. They need to improve their website and do some graphics. I accepted it even the salary is 10k only.
As time goes by i getting to know more about the company problems. One of the main problem of the company is their business software made by outsource programmer. These programmers they been maintaining the system for monthly service fee of 6k and then 2008 it became 10k.
The system full of defects and so slow.
2007 and 2008, because i'm a hardworking person he gave me some tours to hongkong with pocket money. I treated that as a incentives
2010, my boss had enough with their system he wants to improve their system. He was looking for a new programmer that will do their system. I represent myself. I told him after i developed the system lets talk about the payment scheme, so no actual payment made for the system itself. After 6months i finished the system. I told him i want the same payment as outsource programmers. It is seperate from my main salary, in short it is excluded from my salary of 3k per month for maintaining the system. He agreed.
2011, it was implemented. So monthly i receiving additional 3k aside from my salary. In short i have two jobs in the company
Aside from the system he also requested to create a payroll system which became a part of job. No additional payment for this task. So i finished the task. Now everything is in placed
2012, he give me additional jobs as tech support and he promise me that he will be giving me something that i deserved. After a few years i waiting for that but it is nothing. Promise broken.
So now i am web developer, graphics and tech support earning net income of 24k.
There are some cases we been arguing about the things in the company.
I modify the system without his consent
I put expiration to the system. This is for security only. That i want to ensure that all of my hardwork will not go into nothing.
2015, i decided to resign and told him i still the one to handle the maintain of their system but he ignored me everytime i saying that to him. He allowed me to resigned in 1 condition i need to finish the expo event he organized and he will treat my resignation as early retirement and he will pay me as per law like basic salary times number of year of service. I agreed and i finished the expo. Tinupad nya nmn un napag usapan.
But he is really mad the last time we talked. Maybe because i am leaving his company
After a month after i resigned. No calls but text from him asking for source code of the website, he wants to add something to the website. I asked him why just tell me want you want and i will modify it for you. He didnt reply. So i gave him the source because that is not mine that is part of my job description
So from there i can considered that he dumped me.
Oct 2015, the system expired. He email me that is sabotage because that system is property of the company. He will file a legal case if i not fix it.
I reply to him, he didnt own he system. I asking him to pay what we have agreed. I extend the expiration and still he didnt pay me.
Quick review. The system is monthly retainer fee (paid separately). NO CONTRACT. my job description is web dev and graphic.
If you think i am wrong i am willing to remove the expiration.
I need your opinion and suggestion.
Thanks a lot... godbless
