I am being terminated from a startup 2 weeks before reaching my one year cliff. The other day I was asked to sign a release form noting the date of termination and that I would receive no stake in the startup.
To provide some background, I was visiting the company at their new out of state location for a few weeks. Historically, the company started in SF and moved. We also worked remotely for a better part of a year. I was asked about my future with the company, and I mentioned that I would like to transition out of the company. My flight back home was scheduled for next week, but it was pushed up to two days after the discussion when a new ticket was purchased for me.
The following weeks progressed with my permissions to various websites were being revoked, and my receipt of a release form.
The company was bootstrapped, less than 5 people, and everyone worked for more than half a year without salary.
I saw a similar situation here on another Ask HN thread.
What are your thoughts and advice about the situation above?
Thank you for taking the time
