My family and I were victims to a horrible, senseless crime in which a family member was murdered.
The courts have taken their sweet time with the case due to the pandemic and as bad luck would have it, it seems like I might be starting a new position around the time the trial is set to start. I must be present and support my family during this trial whether I am employed or not.
I am working with a recruiter, but I have not really delved into that topic with them or the companies I'm interviewing with. The reason being I was hoping the trial would have started and concluded in December but alas it did not, and now I am at the stage where I will soon receive offers and get asked for a start date, but I have no idea where/how/with whom to bring up such a topic.
I'm currently thinking to bring it up with the recruiter and the company as soon as they have given me an offer, but before I have a start date. Is this the right approach for this?
