On 11/4/19 I started a 6 month contract assignment with an Insurance company (FT $45/hr); on 12/11/19 I was contacted by another agency with a request to apply for a position at a major bank. I agreed to an in-person interview on 12/12/19. The following day (12/13/19) at approx 4pm the hiring manager offered me the 6 month contract (with the possibility of going longer) assignment in Charlotte, NC. Minutes later the staffing agency called and confirmed contingent employment and dollar rate ($46) upon completing a successful background and fingerprint screening. The same day I ended the assignment at the Insurance Agency because the hiring manager wanted me to start the following Tuesday 12/17/19.
I was cleared on 12/17/19; on 12/18/19 the Recruiter called and said the bank refuses to pay the agreed upon negotiated rate at $46 hr; instead they want to pay $25 hr. I am now without a job with $0 income. I have all the email correspondences with the Recruiter. Do I have a case?
Did you actually sign a contract or negotiate directly with the company itself? Without a signed agreement, it will be difficult to have a claim against the new company. By parent authority, I assume you mean apparent authority which is where you are reasonable in beliving the agent can bind the principle (new company). This will depend on many factors to determine if that is the case. Speak to a civil litigation to discuss.
