    What do I do??

    2 weeks back I was offered a job with Orange with 100% pay rise to what i was getting at sky. So i took it best part was i wouldnt be working telesales. So I go into sky and fill in my leavers form for today and leave I then get a phone call saying orange offices are being refurbished and I will now not be be starting untill the following monday (the 15th) So i think ok a weeks unpaid holiday i can live with that. But today i get a call from them again saying due to unforsean surcumstances regarding offices ect they have had to suspend my employment INDEFINATLEY I havent even started the job, I've finished up with sky who have a NO RE-EMPLOYMENT policy I hear. So basically because of Orange ******** me about Im left unemployed with no means of income. What do i do?

    Not good mate, the no re-employment thing is pretty true and they are very strict about it from what i know. Couple of lads at uni worked for BskyB a while back in Dunfermline.

    IF you have no written confirmation then technically you have nothing to back you up.

    Unless there is a document that clearly states you are guarantee'd a position, which isn't likely nowadays, you don't have much to back you up. Not to sound grim but not much you can do i wouldn't think. Sorry mate.
