Ive got a problem. I work for a small lawn care business. Just two of us. I was interested in getting into lawncare as a carrer, and he agreed to take me on. Ive learned a lot and had a GREAT time and love every minute of it, but my last two pay checks have bounced.:eek: Can anyone recomend a goodway to go about this?
Thanks

agreed...work for someone else. You probably wouldnt want to learn to much from this guy anyways...he obviously is doing things wrong.

When you mess with a person's paycheck you have no morals.

Ask for him to take you to his bank and pay you in cash. You have every right to be paid on time and in full. I would consider finding something else until you can start your own business.

I really dont want to leave because he is talking about moving to Texas next season to take a job and he will leave me his accounts. Its not many, but its a start. Im thinking about making him pay me in cash from now on, but would that mess with the books/irs at all? Its really a pain cause I have court fines do that i can pay and they dont care that I have the money. they just care that i havent payed.

First off have it out with your boss. Thats messed up! Second, once you get paid, find a new company to work for. Im sure you will find a job you can enjoy as much, working for someone who's checks wont bounce.

To say I'd be pissed would be an understatement, I'd get my bread and roll If I were you, In my Opinion, you'd be a fool to work for him after that. But again that's MY opinion....

My business accounts can fluctuate $30,000 within a few days.

That's life. I'm sure he will pay you.

yup, have to to agree. If he can't pay you he should at least tell you that before you bounce a check

In my business, my employee's get paid first. Before me. I,d borrow if I had to. It's the only way to do business

Those of us that were born here, appreciate the advanced warning that "another one" will be moving down here.


Please take that with a slice and spread of humor.

lol... dont worry, if i didnt have my sense of humor.. well.. anyway. I dont think he plans on doing any lawncare there. His wife is a doctor and I think he will be the stay at home dad in a few years. I just talked to him, said he will pay may in cash from here on out. That will work.

1. Turn him into DA (Writing hot checks is a felony) :nono:
2. Take his accounts he'll be in jail :confused:
3. He don't move to Texas :D

Next Question
