He lives in California. I lived in NY. He gave me a ring on Valentine's Day 2015. Shortly after that he asked me to leave my job and move to California to live with him and work for him. He promised to support me financially and to hire me as a secretary doing administrative work for his business. He said he needed the help for his business and I would help him with the marketing and writing up contracts. He stated he would put me on payroll and offer me healthcare. (I have proof written and oral). I left my job with a good salary, pension,401k . The last two years he never put me on payroll. I have done some marketing for his business I.e. Setting up social media accounts for his business, finding a new logo design for his business, and provided a vendor for his company tshirts. I was also relying on him for financial support every month for 2yrs. I currently moved back to NY without a job or finances relying on family for now. My question is can I sue him for the loss of money I lost due to his promise of new employment? Cohabitual agreement? Or palimony? Also the ring he gave me he took back and a camera he bought me for my birthday he refused to give me.
