I have been working the last year as a sole trader for a startup incorporated in the USA. I've quit and am about to leave. In my employment contract, I have been receiving compensation for my services but have deferred full compensation as part of the contract (because they're a startup and were low on cash). Now that I am leaving, am I owed the full amount of compensation that was deferred when I leave? If not, who is to decide what and when the amount should be, etc.? Here's the excerpt: "In the event of such termination, Consultant shall be paid for any portion of the Services that have been performed prior to the termination." That's all it says in the contract. Thank you in advance for any help!
