This is for a collection agency. The business has not been up and running yet. So no money in and no money out. We’ve just gotten everything set up now. Also If there are no earnings does it matter if he only charges me a penny per stock?
Caveat emptor, let the buyer beware. Best to do adequate due diligence, which if you haven't done a transaction like this before (which it sounds like you haven't) getting someone to review things with you can be the ounce of prevention that avoids having to pay a pound of cure later on.

I can't financially keep up with this. I emailed the Property Manager, and he bluntly told me that there is no... Read more »

Without seeing your agreement and ancillary employment docs (company handbook, etc.) I couldn't say for certain, but it appears that they can sue you if you violate the notice period, but they probably won't.
