Hi,
I do sales for a few small companies. All companies besides for one is commission based. I work from home. One company pays me $200 a week for 10 hours plus commission- I've been working with him for about 8 weeks and so far booked about 20 appointments (not going to go into detail) but he hasn't gone to any besides for one appt...whatever.
My question is, he decided now that he wants my password to my email that I use for his buisness, I do not feel comfortable sharing it. I am not hiding anything. But I don't need anyone "spying"on me, and then he'll question why I replied like this, and what about that etc.. My question is am I mechuyev to give it to him? He claims that his friend that owns a company has log ins to all employees. I get that, but that's when you work "in" the company, they set you up a email, they give you a computer, phone etc...and train you...
This is sales...am I wrong? I wish I could give up the $200 a week, but at this point in time I still need it,

IMHO he has the right to access all of your communication with his clients. You’re representing his business - it would be very irresponsible of him to not monitor your activity.

I give him weekly reports, is that not good enough?

I don't work from home. But fwiw, my boss has my passwords and logins - they assigned it to me!

Our agreement was that I "get" him meeting and appointments. Which I am b''h getting lots of more and more. He is not going to any appointments...

Wouldn't weekly reports be good enough? I am not a baby...I've been working for over 12 years. I know that he's very happy with the work I am doing.

I would also feel very uncomfortable with that arrangement.
Maybe you could offer to cc him on any appointment booking related emails instead?

I did, and he didn't go for that. He's quite controlling which is not good, and this might just be the end of it for me.
lol, any appointment he can't commit to...he needs to talk on the phone for a half hour every time I speak to him and I have to hear his whole life story and about every aspect of the buisness which has nothing to do with me.
He's a older person...

This might just be it for me!

Are you a 1099/contractor or a regular employee? Might make a difference here.

If you offered to cc him on all correspondence - does it really matter if he has access to your password. I mean it feels icky - but whats the difference?

I would quit anyway. You seem great at generating leads. work for someone who will visit the targets.

I actually called up a consultant and was told that legally I do not need to give it to him.
If the email was his domain, then I would be, but in this case its not and I don't need to give it.

I think I'm done with him! Hashem will send parnassa another way.
Can't live like this...its been eating me up lately.

Are you interested in a commission- only job? I may know of someone looking. If so, please post an email address so that we can be in touch further.

the commission is yours if he makes a sale. If he's a mentch he'll send you the commission check. If he's not - it will be good to know what is owing to you - then decide what to do about it.
