So. Ms. boss's att'y waited until AFTER hours to contact my att'y on Friday. My att'y got ahold of him yesterday AM......and he wants to negotiate. For LESS. :bangs head:
My att'y told me that he told him that if company was his client, he'd have told them to write the checks and walk away. He asked me if I was willing to negotiate, and I said, 'Well..yeah. UP. This has gotten ridiculous, and I'm getting angry now. Ask him if $45K is good for him? I'm sorry..but this has me upset. THEY issue me a contract then refuse to honor it when push comes to shove - why should I take less than they PROMISED me???"
He agreed with me (well, maybe not with the amount, and I honestly, truly do not WANT more than I was promised, but......:sigh:)....and told me he'd call her att'y back and see.
I haven't heard from him yet....but it looks like I will be going to court.
The bad thing is - she's also fighting my unemployment, which has put us in a severe bind. The severance would pay off all the bills, meaning that the unemployment would be moot; now? Now, we NEED that money just to stay afloat. :sigh:
Prayers would be MUCH appreciated for a resolution here, because I am a basket case right now. (The "good" news is that I have half a sock already. Nervous energy for the win, I guess. :weak grin:)
Anyway. Enough belly-aching for the day. I need to stay positive. And I need to get photos of the new kids - both for y'all and for CraigsList. They ARE cute and bouncy and adorable! :fingers crossed: they all sell quickly...that would help out with the bill situation!
