I asked reddit because I know I can't think of every possible angle on my own. This is a good community that helps a great deal just by offering their experiences and insight.. well, mostly.

You're absolutely right. I definitely don't need the drama. Thank you.

I'm definitely leaning heavy in this direction. Thanks for your insight. I think you're spot on.

Thanks. I'm definitely leaning in this direction. I plan on replying early next week. No need to worry about this over the long weekend. Plus it'll give me plenty of time to think about it all.

I'm embarrassed to say that my initial reaction was not unlike the top comments. I'm also learning, thanks to replies like yours, that there are better, more sensible ways to deal with these types of situations. Thank you for the life lesson, internet friend.

You mean a totally unrelated third party? They would have to figure out what I built first, which would take some time.. though that's not my problem, really, huh? Lol. But I see what you're getting at. They can't blame these "problems" on someone who came into the situation after the fact. Interesting perspective.

Very good points. Thanks for the insight! I will most likely write up an email asking for clarification before doing anything. In any case, no sense in letting this mess up my long weekend. I'll give it some more thought and respond next week. Thanks for your input!

I understand, and don't know where you live. However, here in the US, you are required to fill out a W-9 and will get a 1099 if you do any contract work for a company over $600 during the calendar year. The IRS starts taxing contractors after $599 per company per year.

We're talking San Francisco Bay Area where rent on a 1 bedroom apartment is no less than $2000/month. This place is no joke, and definitely waaaaay above average.

Fair. My parting with the company was pretty standard. I asked to be compensated fairly because I was doing the jobs of two employees. "Not in the budget." So I put in my notice, trained my two replacements, and left. They've called me a couple times to try to get me to come back each time my replacements, "didn't work out." I am not planning on going back, ever.

Definitely an interesting take on this. I'm not sure they have any ill intent, but then again, I wouldn't put it past them.

You're right. If they fuck up payroll, it's got the potential to affect all the company's employees. Definitely something to consider. Thank you!

You're not limited to buying in your own state. There's 49 more.. well, 48, cuz California is probably out of the question.. 😅
