Today, after receiving a message about being hired at a retail store, I went to the orientation for new employees. The trainer seemed perplexed when I told him my name, but he gave me my paperwork and continued with training. At the end of the 8 hour day, he asked to talk to me. I wasn't actually hired. FML

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
