I accepted a position through a recruiter to work at a large company. I gave my two week notice to my now ex-employer.
Friday before my agreed upon start date the recruiter calls and says the PO is not signed so you cannot start on Monday. A full week has gone by, I have had numerous email and phone conversations with the recruiter and manager.
They keep telling me I have the job and they are trying to get the PO approved.
Meanwhile I am not getting paid. How should I approach my new company in order to get paid for my lost time working? If I had known it would take this long I would have simply kept working at my previous company.
