Q: Am I going to lose my current job?
I had an employment agreement with a company but my situation changed before I was ever officially slated to start and I had to back out of the contract. The employer told me on a phone call that he would void the contract and that he would move on to other candidates. A month later I found a different job in the same field and I get an email from the employer saying that he’s sending me an official notice of an employment agreement I executed with them. The contract says I can terminate early with 90 days notice but it has not been 90 days and I guess the employer has not been able to find another candidate. The only experience I had for this company was a 4 hour unpaid working interview which I wondered if that was legal to have an unpaid interview. But I just wanted to know if I could lose the job I have currently or what the repercussions would be for me regarding this situation with the employment agreement. The company is in South Carolina and I currently work in WV. Thank you
