Summerville, SC asked in Employment Law for South Carolina

Q: I worked as an independent contractor and am owed thousands of dollars. Help, please.

Hi. I worked as an independent contractor for a small business. They owe me $13,814.50

for the work I did for them last year. I have tried to work with them. Offered them payment plans

and even offered to drop the amount owed if they began paying. They have not.

I did work for their clients. Their clients paid them but they have failed to pay me my share.

They have not responded to me in months. I need help, please.
