Today, it was my last day at work. I was offered a better job and accepted. Not wanting to leave my present boss hanging, I asked for time to give notice. While I trained my replacement, the owner at the new job had time to think about how slow the season is, and he decided not to fill the position. FML

That's a real jerk thing for your new boss to do. FYL, especially with the holidays right around the corner. Hope you got your shopping done early!

as a recent law school grad, you likely have a claim against the "new" employer. if you accepted the offer and detrimentally relied upon that acceptance, you will likely have a case for breach of contract (even though it may not have been in writing). you would likely be able to collect for your past salary for a certain period of time until you find a new job.

now if you were hired and then let go within the scope of your employment (even though you technically never started), that sucks
