|I did contract work for someone in Node.js
I was not versed in node. When we initially spoke about work for hire it was not in node. He called me back and told me he wanted me do it in Node. I told him no, that I was not going to since it was outside of my knowledge and did not feel comfortable. It was a simple project so I conceded and do it. He asked me to now do a big project in node. I declined but he gets another person for me to work with who is really is not strongly skilled in node but with more experience in it than I have and we work on it.|
I join his 4 man company and fast forward to today. My last day at this company is in 2 days and he has the code looked at by a third party auditor. There are issues with the code(obviously).
He is asking me to document everything I ever wrote and I am being threatened with legal action for work done he said as an contractor(not as an employee with the company). Since it was subpar.
He had withheld my last paycheck saying I will get it on my last day at the company(I dont know what else he has planned for me then. May serve me my lawsuit?).
What is my best course of action with this? I am guessing seek legal council soon. This is in the U.S btw
