Hiring Rules for Businesses
My son was interviewed for a job at a local business. They called him back and said he had been hired and would be getting 30 to 35 hours a week. We were both thrilled because he has been looking for a job all summer and it has been a struggle for both of us. Since then, a month has passed and he calls in every week to find out when he will be starting and what his hours are, but they continue to say that he is not on the schedule yet and the last time he called he was told that they were waiting for a position to open up. This does not seem ethical? Is it legal for a business to hire someone and then keep them hanging for weeks like this? What can we do about this?
