Any contracts bw my person and the company may be deemed unconscionable to my knowledge. I was told by my manager I make the company on average $389,000 weekly while only being paid $400 to do so. I feel I am entitled to some of this profit I am making this Company. Of course this is not an easy case. But CAN the case be made and heard in court.
No, you can’t sue for more money, no matter how much you earn for the company. You can quit and take your talents elsewhere, or try to renegotiate the terms of your employment where you are. But you can’t sue.
Your value to the company isn’t just what you earn for them, but how easily you can be replaced. If you have a valuable skill set then maybe you should negotiate for more salary. But if plenty of other people can do what you do then you’re easily replaceable.
Are you at least being paid minimum wage for hours worked? If so, then there is no cause of action against your employer based on the information you have provided.
Please be clear, that I am not establishing an attorney-client relationship and do not represent you until a fee agreement is signed by both parties. This is a forum for me to provide partial advice and give guidance where needed. In no way, am I asking you to rely on this advice and encourage you to either request a consultation or ask for a second opinion.
