Junior Member

I made a verbal agreement with an employer that I would begin working for him in the fall of 2006 (approx. Aug 20, 2006). He promised me the job and I agreed to take it. He contacted me on July 18, 2006 informing me that he had found someone else he wanted to take the job (even though he had already promised it to me). He did not give sufficient reason for choosing the other person over me. Is there any legal action I can take considering that there was never a written contract or agreement of employment, but rather only a verbal one? Are there any previous cases of this occurring? I was counting on the pay from this job to finance my housing, transportation, living expenses, etc.

Thanks for any assistance.
