  • Job accepted was changed

    I recently gave 2 weeks notice and quit a Bookkeeping job to accept a position as an Accounts Payable Clerk. (I work in NJ for a large corporation)
    I was hired to replace the person who had been handling Accounts Payable because a new position had been created for that individual.

    On the 4th day at my new job, I was informed by the person I was replacing that the company had changed their mind. They were keeping this individual in Accounts Payable and were going to find "something else" for me to do.

    I feel like I'm a victim of Bait & Switch. The job I now have is not the one I applied for and accepted. Had I been told at the interview this position would require me to do X and Y, I would have said no thanks and kept my old job until I found something suitable.

    Are employers allowed to do this to people?

    Unfortunately, yes, they can do this. Now if you had said that they terminated you after only 4 days, that is entirely different.

    Just see what they have to offer you. You never know, it could be a better opportunity.
