I wasn't really an independent contractor since I had an office there and was vital to the core business - the only programmer at an internet company. Although I believe I could be classified an employee to file a wage claim, I'm considering the small claims route. The amount still owed exceeds the limit, but I'd be willing to settle for that amount. The unpaid invoices are now arriving at the two-year-old mark. I don't have a written copy of my contract, so I'm worried that I may be reaching a time limit. However, the last payment received was six months ago, and I have an email from four months ago promising payment when they have funds, which they now do. Do I need to file now, or can it wait?
