Say you have a job, its pretty stable but you want to move on up, so you apply for another one.
You do well at the interview, and are offered the job, so you hand your notice in.
In the last week of your notice, your new place of work decides its now not hiring, so there is no new job to go to, and your old place has already hired your replacement
Where do you stand? Are you entitled to some compensation? Or are you left to just fend for yourself?
