Obviously its a tough sell getting a firm to subscribe to any non injury based claim on contingency, but my circumstances are extraordinary.

The slimeball ex-lawyers that started a data center, relocated me from across the country to make heads or tails of a rats nest of a facility they had thrown together..

I did such a great job, my efforts were recognized in the form of monetary rewards, company options and new titles.

Ultimately I was the Chief Information Officer of the company before Siicone Valley investors got duped into parting with millions and I quickly became a target to eliminate.

Not ever being manager in the past, let alone executive, it wasent long before they played games and fabricated cause on flimsy allegations to dismiss me which they did without severence or leu of notice.

All my hard work turning a leaky, unmanageable safety disaster into a working facility was quickly thrown out the window.

I'm now stuck in the Canadian sub arctic and cant afford legal representation cause my ample salary was soaked up in making a home of the new province I was shuttled off to, a livelyhood I was abruptly severed from less than a year later despite two promotions and the companies insistance that I change my living address to one over 2000kms and two provinces away.

Since the Atlantic provinces are such a boys club, even if I could afford an hourly rate barrister I have been turned away due to conflicts of interest.

Contractually I have $250k due if dismissed without legal cause and $15k that was blatantly left unpaid in a simple breach of contract.

And a quarter percent of the company in options with another half percent alloted annually (due december).

This is before any punative damages a judge would leap to tack on to a ruling for the hainous behaviour that took place afterwards.

I've got all kinds of evidence from audio recordings of botched "investigation interviews" from people who have no business acting as HR staff, and an exported email inbox and suspicious company financials.

Looking forward to pm's.. figure at the very least it will cost the company a fine sum of bitcoin to pay off whoever chimes in and is interested in filing against this group.

Doesn't seem very much related to Bitcoin itself, unless I missed out on something. Was the chain of events leading up to the decision to release you in any way caused by Bitcoin's price (or were you paid in Bitcoin or is your contract only in dollar values?).

If contractually you're owed then that's already sound basis so you should first take it up with your union (Canada, many unionised work places, yours one?).

If not, start with some good, free advice from paralegals at least. Here's a starting point: Google "pro bono employment law advice Canada". I see quite a few hits on my end.

The data center in question is actually just a bitcoin mine despite the owners recent ramblings about "AI" processing which they actually have little to no actual understanding of.

I've been involved in crypto in some capacity since discovering the alt.cypherpunk newsgroup and later the distributed.net challenges that came about but am not a "business man" of any capacity.

Just was psyched to turn a hobbey into large production and help secure the network but really dissapointed to find the greed and ignorance driving industry right now.

I have consulted many and feedback from unbiased and honest parties is that this company would crumble under legal scrutiny of this matter.. but being previous attournies the directors will do all they can to tie the matter up in courts for as long as possible.

Unfortunately they are unbiased because for one reason or another, despite their expertise they are unable to represent me in this matter.

Ultimately the generous contract means an outcome is worth while and its more than likely that a bid to hit the toronto stock exchange will force negotiations to a quick conclusion.

I don't think the Bitcoin nature of business would affect the proceedings or the outcome, the sort of legal advice you're likely to find here in this forum section are all otherwise Bitcoin related, typically on tax and income. I'm surprised you're saying that those you've reached out to (especially if it's pro bono or social non-profit) would decline to to represent you. If everything is as you say, then it's just a clear cut breach of contract and possibly, wrongful termination (or at least no solid grounds for it). All the same, wish you luck. Maybe someone will PM you after all.

Thanks..

I agree the nature of the business will have little outcome on the matter, but i'd think the fact that it's a bitcoin mine would make it relevant for this forum, coupled with the nature of the query.

I can be contacted at council@writeme.com if anyone prefers to avoid having documented pm's on this forum.

Hey there not sure how much searching you've done or organisations you've reached out to.

You may be able to use the Provincial governments Labour board or standards office, hard to say with the title of CIO. Either way it may be worth a few calls/emails to clarify if you are covered in that manner as you wouldn't need a lawyer and it would be more of an arbitration situation.

https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/services/labour-standards/reports/unjust-dismissal.html

Here is a site that gives a rundown and has "preferred" legal specialists. You may at least be able to score a few pro bono tips/advice, maybe even someone willing to work for your situation. I can't vouch for this site so use and trust at your own risk.

https://www.legalline.ca/legal-answers/employee-rights-on-termination-of-employment/

They might be a good starting point. Either way best of luck in sorting this out.
