My offer letter states I am entitled to the 2.5% interest in the company after completing 2 years. I've done that and so far just getting the brush off. What can I do? or should do?

    What do you mean by 'brush off'? "Don't bother me now?" "You're not going to get that"? "We didn't really mean that?" Who exactly have you talked to? – DJClayworth Jul 25 '17 at 17:46

    Well either let it go, or fight for it. If you want to fight for it you really need a lawyer... – IDrinkandIKnowThings Jul 25 '17 at 17:47

    Your next question should be "when is a good time?". Make an appointment to come and talk, at a time convenient to them (but not very far in the future). – DJClayworth Jul 25 '17 at 17:50

    @queenezgurl - You may not want that 2.5% interest... depending on how the company is organized you could end up on the hook for 2.5% of the debt if they screwed something up. – IDrinkandIKnowThings Jul 25 '17 at 17:52

    In any case, I'd start looking for a new job. Fraud investigation, and failure to pay out contract, and you possibly suing the company all amounts to you wanting to work somewhere else. – David K Jul 25 '17 at 18:09

You can choose to either let it go and hope they eventually make good on their promise, or you can fight for it.

If you want to fight for it you should really consult a lawyer. They can tell you if you have any grounds to stand on. But that is not something we are going to be able to help you with here probably.

If you choose to fight for it realize you are probably not going to make friends with the company exec and may come to regret fighting for that interest. But only you can make that choice.
