Since March of 2011 I have been verbally offered a potential job.
As of Feb. 2012 He shook my hand, told me he was hiring me, and gave me a list of supplies I would need to be able to be able to work. I clearly expressed that the cost of the supplies was substantial. He was very clear that while being a considerable amount to me at the time, would hardly be a week's paycheck in the new position and that I had nothing to worry about. he repeated this sentiment and the statement that I was hired multiple times, in-front of a witness.
He had me send in an Authorization for Representation to a local union Business Manager as an employee of his company.
Running out of room, but B.M. said id be in to negotiate the terms of unionizing in a few weeks.
He is now retracting his offer
Actionable?To add additional information i was provided the prevailing wage information for the position and promised 6-8 months of work and at the time of shaking my hand and telling me I was hired he had me give notice to my other current positions of employment quitting and/or changing availability as applicable. my supplies total between ~300-500 dollars I purchased a vehicle with conditionals with context to the needs of the job ~3,000 I quit a job that averaged me ~75 a week for the last 7 weeks since he had me change my availability I lost a full time minimum-wage opportunity at my part-time job that I kept during the above mentioned 7 week period due EXPLICITLY to my change in availability. the differences in wages alone is hundreds of dollars..
