I recently ran into an interesting situation and would like some ethical feedback. Here's the situation:
I was contacted by a recruiter about a position after submitting my resume to their site
Recruiting firm introduced me to company X
Position was an awesome fit and company X setup an in person interview
Recruiting firm and company X had a falling out
Recruiting firm disengages and tells me the in person interview is canceled
I would like to re-engage with company X directly. Am I legally bound not to pursue the position? Is company X legally bound not to pursue me if I found a job posting online and submit directly?
Seems wrong to me that issues between company X and recruiting firm would block my ability to get a job and provide for my family.
