An impacted new hire with 10 years of experience said, “It’s when I started following up with them that I got to know that my onboarding date has been deferred.”
“When I asked them what the reason was, they said they were informed by the management last week that onboarding will be done in phases. But they aren’t confirming any date,” the impacted employee added.
