Dallas, TX asked in Employment Law for Texas

Q: Temp agency told me to be at my new job at 7 I was fired 2nd day for being late by supervisor who said it was 630.

I have it in writing from the temp agency to be there at 7 and I only heard from the supervisor that it was supposed to be 630 after he fired me. What can I do? I dont feel like this is right at all.

A: Very sorry to hear that you were treated this way. The Temp Agency created this problem for you, you should ask them to straighten it out. If you cannot go back to work at the former company, ask the temp agency to provide you a new placement on a priority basis, without a charge to you. You should also discuss iwth a local attorney in TX about this as soon as possible. Thanks for using Justia ask a lawyer.
