My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: California
I was out of work for 2 years. Had never been out of work since I was a teen, but got laid off from a company in Feb 2010 because they went under. Had to move back to Texas to move in with the inlaws.
Anyway, I finally got a call from a company in the area of California where we used to live. We made a trip out of it and took the kids so I could make it to be interviewed. I was offered the job.
The owner said the company had a great year last year and was doing well this year. He knew I lived in Texas. He offered me the job and two weeks later, I came back to start. I left my family behind to start work and rented a casita for the time being.
Well, yesterday, one day away from working there two months, the guy laid me off. Said the work in the area was just too slow. I just put a deposit down on my home 2 weeks ago.
Can I go after this guy for my expenses to move out here? He led me to believe the company was doing well in the interview, and being in this career for so long, I know the business owner he should have known what his immediate future was for the company when he interviewed me.
