So they want to offer me a job selling paint in a shop when I return? WTF? And until then I should survive without pay?
Do you guys think it's time to get my lawyer involved? I know NZ law is different from US law, but it seems pretty dodgy.
They gave someone else my job, so it's not like they can terminate my employment because there is no job for me.
If they sent you a text message that is a bad sign.
Show up in person and demand answers (politely)
