I just got terminated because my employer ran out of money. What do I do?
I revamped his entire company over the past 5 months with verbal commitment of partnership and certain monthly salary (all of which he didn't follow through with.) In revamping, I hired a sales staff and trained them. Trained office staff. Created entire marketing materials and sales kit. Then contacted nearly 100 companies which some day will turn into business for him down the road. Gave corporate presentations and presented at trade shows. During this time he payed his personal bills with business money and spent money poorly while his wife screwed up the books (all while paying her off the books.) Do I have any legal recourse on this guy...I've got a family to feed and no job.

find a corporate lawyer and make sure you have proof to back up your claims.

I don't get why, if you're smart enough to have done all that, you had no contract. What legal recourse? If there's no money, there's no money. Why not take the 100 new contacts and start your own company. .
