What is the name of your state? North Carolinaundefined I interviewed for a project manager position with a company in North Carolina. During the entire hiring process, the executives of the company stated that i would be managing a 7 year contract which they were going to be awarded from another company. After finalizing all the necessary hiring paperwork, I was hired and was going to relocate to North Carolina from Texas.
On my first day of employment, I discovered that my company did NOT have the contract yet. I was told they had the contract during the interview process. I ask the executives to explain themselves and they admit they did not have a contract and that I would have to re-write the entire contract proposal to help win the contract. The executives also said they would win the contract because they were a minority owned business and the company who was awarding the contract needed a minority owned business to satisfy their commitment with the Federal Government. This company also used my name and credentials in their first contract proposal before I became an employee of the company.
Long story short - they were not awarded the contract and I was laid off without compensative for physical damanges I incurred. Two other employees were involved in this case and 1 is suing now. Is what they did illegal? I believe it is on several levels.
Thanks in advance,
