So I was so excited when I got a part time job in my field last May, then things got a little weird (My new boss just started the company but I got a call from someone she used to work with, trying to find out info about her) so I started looking for a new job, then there was an accident at work (I sent a file that her screen printer couldn’t use, she told me about it and I sent another file, but it was too late and the job had been finished and the client hated it and returned it, she blames me for the whole fiasco) since then it’s been tense and when I sent in my timesheet 2 weeks ago to be paid, she ignored it for a week and then came out with a snarky comment about how I cost her $600 and she thinks I’m double charging her. (Yeah my part time job has become more like freelance, and not that steady either) I’m fed up with this, she has my check in limbo over something that I did to the best of my ability and even corrected the mistake but it was too late. Since New Years Eve I haven’t responded to her emails. SO says I should threaten to sue, what would you bees suggest I do?

Uhh if you worked those hours then you get paid. That’s the way it should go. People are only human, they make mistakes. I make errors at my job and they still pay me what I am due.
Do you get paid by this boss by the hour or is it on a per job basis?

@megz I should get paid per hour that I work on projects. Lately she has been nitpicking all of my hours, and I let her the first time because I figured the company wasn’t doing as well as she had expected (It’s a start up company) now it’s getting annoying.

ok so I’ve sent an email to her, under the advice of my friends and SO here goes:
I apologize that the client rejected the Tees, however I did rectify the situation when I became aware that there was an issue with the first file. Please advise Why the Screen printer proceeded with the original file knowing that there was an issue? The order should have been paused until the second file arrived. I believe that I should be paid for the services that I have provided previously and since then.
Regarding your statement that I have charged extra to ‘fix my mistakes’, I only charge for the work that must be done. If any adjustments need to be made it gets done the second time around and would have been charged the same no matter what.
I have never provided you as a reference, nor provided your name, phone number, or email address to anyone. I do, however, list (insert company name) as my current employer, and if anyone searches for (insert company name) they will come up with your information.
What do you guys think?
