Isn't there some way you can force them to compensate you for your time? There should be, because that's just fucked. Don't you usually check up on that stuff right away?

Yeah, they should compensate you for wasting your day, when you could have been out applying for a job where people are actually organized!

not only unprofessional, but legally he could insist they pay them. odds are he won't though, as it wouldn't really be worth the trouble.

Oh, that's just messed up on such a high level! Especially with how difficult jobs are to get these days!

Why should the OP have to check it...I mean they sent her an actual e-mail telling her she was hired. What more do you need?

I've always been paid for my time at orientations- you are working- it's training! If the OP has their message saying they were hired then they need to show it- regardless they should be paid for their time.

Most orientation and WSIB classes are usually payed time , because as beerab said.. Your on the clock and in the company's hands.. You almost always get paid for training, and orientational courses are part of training

If The company refused OP the days salary, he/she could take them to small claims court.. All they would have to do is find 3-4 people that were in the course on the same day and get the to testify as to your presence in the course and you would be set.. Though it probably wouldn't be worth it after court/ lawyer fees lol

I don't think it's worth it working for a company that can hardly handle hiring employees. What a bunch of unprofessional idiots.

I think you can sue them and claim expenses and damages (Biz law class from the states 10 yrs ago.... but worth checking out). Keep the message.
