I worked in 2017 as an independent contractor for a company that built and coordinated the installation of high-end retail window displays. We had worked together for years but payments started taking longer and then became partial payments used to keep the next job going. Eventually the payments stopped. I've been able to get a few payments over the years, however I am stilled owed close to $10,000. Do I still have any legal rights in this instance or have I simply waited and been stringed along for to long? The particular store for this time period was Hugo Boss. I worked in California and the company hired me from New York rather than sending their own employees across the country. Thank you for your time.
