A Job With No Start Date
Dear Evil HR Lady,
I was recently hired at a medical school library as an assistant. But I had a question about how long they are allowed to make me wait to start the position. The HR Department set my hire date as a week ago. I am in their payroll system and HR said I could start working. But the librarians will NOT give me a start date. They keep saying another person is going to start with me, and they want to wait until that happens. How long are they allowed to make me wait? They've also told me to stop following-up with them to get a start date, that they will call me when they are ready. Is this normal?
No, this is not normal.
