Don’t be surprised if former boss comes to you later for help with the websites. If you are a contractor, it’s eventually more business. If you are looking for a permanent job, look elsewhere.

Were you on a contract for those website only? Or were you told you would have a long-term job and the websites were the first task? Cause if it's the econd one, yeah you got screwed up... Do you have anything in your contract that could guarantee you were wrongfully terminated? Do you have admin access for the websites? Cause if you do, you could have a tiny revenge by charging extra for giving ownership of the websites? Or messing the websites (change the phone numbers to a competitors' for example).

So, you were a contractor. Did you think otherwise? Did you think you were an employee with open-ended employment, or even worse, that your boss was your buddy? Next time, work slower.

Well, if this person is in the US there is no such thing as wrongful termination unless you have an actual contract and they violated it or if it is for a federally protected reason. They can literally fire you for pretty much anything. Also, doing the things you mentioned would constitute a felony, because you are accessing systems you are not authorized to access. This would result in massive fines at minimum, and significant prison time at worst. Either way, your career and life would be over.

As long as OP has admin access/ ownership to the websites it's authorized access right? Yes I understand that US laws can be tricky, but as nothing in the FML says anything about the location, that's why I phrased my suggestion as questions.

I was hired as an executive assistant. The only task she gave me, that she would allow me to work on was the websites. Everytime I tried to do something else she would say don't worry about that I need my site done. I was hired as a permanent employee. I had access to the backside of the site. so I went in and messed with it. Good luck to her trying to fix it.

So yeah, she tricked you. She should have hired a consultant but they are more expensive. Yes !!! If you still are the only one who knows how to fix it, she probably is going to call you to fix it.

I was told it was permanent. And I was working slow!
