Money Matters - Pruzbul question
Submitted by Sylvain Blumenfrucht  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question: With Shmitta coming up I have a particular issue with my ex-employer owing me money both for unpaid wages(a breach of Dinei de Malchusei Dinei issue), unpaid commissions (a breach of contract problem) and unpaid expenses (a verbal agreement followed for 15 months by a Chazakah of payment). My question is as follows - assuming of course that it is decided/agreed/paskened that these monies are due to me, is a Pruzbul enough to cover these three issues regarding debts to me. Thank you
Answer: Unpaid loans are cancelled at the end of the Shmittah year, Unless a pruzbul is written, which is usually done shortly before the end of the Shmittah year.

The above applies mainly to loans. Unpaid wages and commissions are usually not affected by Shmittah (see Shulchan Aruch, Choshen Mishpat, 67:15), but unpaid expenses that were laid out by the employee may be.

At any rate, any debts that are affected by Shmittah will be recoverable if a valid Pruzbul is executed before the end of the Shmittah year.
