I worked for this employer for a month, and he only paid me for half-month then suddenly replaced me after I delivered the MVP. And he was okay with the result. Then he immediately cut me off without paying me the payment for the other 1/2 month.
So he made a Paypal buyer claim, because I don't have access to our messages (because he already cut me off in Slack and access to the company mail) on his satisfaction with the MVP, I lost the Paypal buyer claim and it was immediately refunded to his account.
I reviewed the contract - he didn't follow the contract on his terms.
He made me sign an NDA but it was in his home country, not mine. And I'm not thinking twice about breaking it because he himself did not follow the contract.
Actions I'm planning to do:
- Go public on this and be vocal about everything to warn other freelancers
- Make the product open source. (Since he refunded the payment supposed to be)
- Reported him to the platform.
I want to make sure no one can become a freelancer of this client ever again. Who takes advantage and rips-off.
Are there any actions I could take? I also sent him a warning already. I feel ripped off and frustrated.
