Ok so my husband has accepted a contract job through a recruiter, went to interview , got the job, signed, and was given a start date. BUT THEN... start date got pushed up by a couple of days, no biggie.(financial situation somewhat ok) Couple of days go by, email from recruiter comes in saying it's going to be next week he can start. Starting to get a little concerned. (Using any monies sparingly just in case) Ok that week passes, another email saying not his week but next week. So now that's been 2 weeks and a couple of days. Long story short, 2 more weeks and then he can start. So the grand total of days with out a paycheck will a little over a month. (Financial situation critical) Like everyone else bills need to get paid.
What would be the professional and polite way to notify the current job that if the the start date continues to keep moving he will have no other choice to accept or apply to another job? Without hurting his professional standing in the computer industry world of course.
What can he do legally and Professionally? Thoughts anyone? Thanks everyone for reading my post and for any comments!
