Company not sending paychecks ... best way to break loose?
posted by anonymous to work & money (34 answers total)
I've worked for the company in question for two years. They've been... pretty ok about paying, nothing that merits complaint, but kind of lax (as many small companies tend to be). Three weeks ago, I did not receive a paycheck for my services. When I discussed it with my boss, I was told there is "no money for paychecks". Last week, same exact thing - no check, and told "no money". I know its time to get out of there, and I have another job lined up. The problem is .... well, ... the guy running the company is a good guy.. If I leave short, the company is pretty much guaranteed to fail (specific circumstances, I know 'nobody is irreplacable'.. but i also know my previous statement to be true). If I work "volunteer" for a few more weeks, they have a chance... but my school and finances will suffer. What do I do? I can't really stand being THE reason for a company to fail, but on the other hand ... I've got bills to pay, and an education to pay attention to. Help?
