  • Promoted but not Promoted California

    I need some help from anyone who can.

    I was a temp contractor, who was hired on and given a promotion.

    This was nearly 3 months ago, and I am still waiting to be given my promotion.

    I have asked about it, and have been told that they are waiting until Late May/Early June to see if the person I replaced would like to come back to work here. Since the three months have started, I've become progressively more stressed out as I really am anxious to start my new job, but am completely unable to because I am being blocked until this person returns to see if she even wants to return, or (here is my fear) if she doesn't, I'll have to wait idly by as the management team decides to hire someone else. I have not seen the hiring process take anywhere near this long with any other employee here. I honestly believe that I am being held in this position to prevent the management group from having to find anyone other than the person I replaced.

    I don't feel this is fair, but I am not able to find any law to back up my thoughts.

    Does anyone know if there is a law that states if you are given a promotion that it must be implemented within a certain timeframe? If so, could you please post a link to that information?

    I am truly grateful for any help anyone can provide me!

    Thank you in advance!

    No, there is no such law.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      There is also nothing that says that you cannot be looking for a "real" job in the interim. Some employers do not respect employees who let themselves get stepped on. Of course, some employers do not respect anyone, but that is a different story.

        To both of you for responding (I used the last post to quote, but thank you both!)

        I can't say I'm not dissapointed that there isn't such a law, but I understand why. It would be pretty loose wouldn't it?

        I actually am looking for other employment as an alternative. I really do enjoy the company that I work for, but I have a limited want to do the job tasks that I should not be doing any longer.

        Again, thank you both SO much for your quick response!

          None that I can think of, however next time ask for things to be put in writing in the future.
