Employer

Can an employer hire you and give you a start date then email you and tell you that this date will not be your start date and he will notify you, but you don't hear from him?

1) in most states, employers have most of the power to do whatever they choose 2) craft an email for follow-up and send, if you haven't done so already 3) as other posters recommended, I'd call them, BUT after the email. 2-3 days 4) double check ALL of your social media accounts, posts, etc. for anything that doesn't speak well of your character 5) if they are that Flaky (assuming all your social media is clean); ask yourself a question, "do I want to work for such a company?"

My two cents Frank

I believe that they are able to email a start date. But l think by them not contacting you afterwards is form of discrimination. I had that same similar situation several years ago. I followed it to the end. I was hired rhru this place in Long Beach, Ca. The owner of the company was happy l passed a test in rapid time, with no hesitation. I had a start date for the very next day, when l came to work. I then was told the person l was replacing decided not to quit. So l had to respect the company's decision to keep her bcause she had more time invested in the company than myself being l was a new employee. I beg to differ, she was quitting until the employer announced a new start date in front of her. Which he seemed very happy to hire me on. I felt she was very intimated and kept her postion, maybe for a few more weeks until she was comfortable knowing l would no longer be hired for her position. It is just amazing how jealousy was so see thru in this situation. Answer to your question. YES! because of the 'At Will Employment Act. To hire and fire you @ will. I hope this answer your question.

Yes they can do that. I'd follow up after a couple weeks, but look for something else.

I had been hiring professionals in the capacity of Project Manager. Generally, the resume of the candidate is reviewed first. If considered suitable for the position, he is interviewed to assess his experience, competence and knowledge of the field. Then a salary package is discussed and a suitable joining time given followed by an offer & acceptance etc. I am not too sure any Employer can give a starting date just like that. Please contact me if you/your Employer has a position commensurate with my educational background & experience. Thank you. Khawar M. Hassan, AIA

Always be sure to speak with one individual in the company. There are lots of conflicts when more than one person contacts you.
