Chris Four of their jobs got shut down after I got fired, totaling about 75k in fines. Ha ha. Dumbasses.
06-15-2019 02:51 PM
Chris They refused to pay me and I dropped it. A few months later I got fired, 90% certain cause my boss was unhappy with our rental agreement. Since then he has tried twice to have me evicted. But he’s a useless sack of donkey semen and has not been successful, largely because I have lived up to the lease and he hasn’t. As soon as this is resolved, the company and I go to court for allowing him to fire me over something that wasn’t work related.

For whatever reason the two guys in our Ca office who were going to take over this role have had their procedure delayed and next week it will be three months with no end in sight. So today I filed the disassociation papers and put the disassociation date as the date they told me they wouldn't be paying me, or 15 Aug. They now have thirty days to replace me or their license gets suspended. What makes this interesting is that the notice will go to our Texas office where no one reads the mail. They may not figure this out for several weeks.
Well this will get interesting...Are you looking for a new job yet?

Holy chit; please keep us posted!

01 I wondered if this would happen. You did, and are doing the right thing. My company has recognized the necessity with the requirements as we handle a large number of orders/contracts that require CA DIR.

Get a formal indemnification and commitment to be legally represented from the general counsel and CEO/Pres. Even a 1% stake holder has 100% of the liability in lawsuit-happy Cali. I'd be in the neighborhood of $10k-$15k/mo for $500m company to borrow my license.

Edit: Also - I've never run across the scenario before, but construction performed under your license (1-2 mo duration) could be subject to latent defect claims in the future, even if the project(s) finish under a new license #. As you know; when there is a lawsuit on a construction project, EVERYONE at every tier rides the train to the end.

The senior and executive VPs already have test dates to become the RMEís. So itís a foregone conclusion that I will not be in the position long. But this is like the designated hitter coming in and smacking a grand slam. My stock goes up significantly, no matter how long I do it for.

I was formally promoted this weekend, with a 30% pay raise, signed an agreement to rent the executive VPs house for as long as I want near my new office, where I can both shoot and hunt in the front yard or any of the 17 acres, significantly reducing the financial and other stresses associated with moving a large family, and was made the fourth member of the team that manages all of our work in Ca. Iím pretty happy and definitely not looking to get fat off this deal, on the contrary, the in with the executive team and the position it puts me in as the next VP over Ca is almost compensation enough.

There are usually ways to work around this if you are listed as an officer with both companies.

Well, there you go. Ask for 20% of all the projects under your license.

Well, maybe that IS a tad greedy, but $3K, for a $500K company is chump change.

Don't be a chump.

I know Chris hates my guts, but I've been here before: You absolutely are in a position to claim a portion of profit.

When I brought in the B-1 Bomber contract, I picked up 4% ownership of a 100 person company, and built on from there...

Congrats. Yer in the catbird's seat.
