3. Not paying your taxes
4. Finding a way to sue your employer
If she was employed 6 hours per week or more, you owe the govt the local version of social security payments.
You do need a lawyer and you will lose. There is a whole system of lawyers and arbitrators here devoted to employer lawsuits--it is a big business. May employ more people than 'love hotels". Did you notice that in the post office there are free letters already designed to document that someone quit in a legal fashion?
Your lawyer's job is to negotiate the lowest possible settlement.
Next time only hire someone who has a monotributo and will give you a legal receipt for each payment.
I have to add to your number 4. It is more about suing anyone regardless of who they are or whether or not the lawsuit is real or frivilous (especially if you are a foreigner).
Everyone is on the take. Many of the people that I know who live in BA do not give out their address or phone number. People pretend like everything is okay but everything is not okay. People live in fear.
