  • Cruise Ship Job

    Respected sir
    I’ve got a job with Apollo chandlers ship for the post of asst. waiter buffet. I had given the interview in Mumbai, India at Indus cruising in last September. Gary and Lynette were my interviewing officers. I cleared all the rounds of interviews.

    I was given an appointment letter which i still possess for Marshall Island based ship called Marina with joining date of 03rd January 2012 by Indus Cruising to be shown at the US embassy in Mumbai, to the Visa interviewing officer during my visa interview in case I was asked any document regarding the job. I cleared the US Visa interview. After that I obtained my US C1D visa in December (valid for 5 years). My passport has been submitted in the Mumbai Indus office since.

    I had been told that I’ll get the call soon.

    It has been a matter of concern for me as I am still awaiting a call from the company since then. I’ve been in touch with Indus cruising office. They are not able to give me assurance of any sought regarding the job. This phase has been a very difficult one for me. What are the options for me? Can i get any financial benefits from them for the hardships that i had to face in the last one and half year that i'm waiting for the job call?

    Please help me.

    I wish to inform you that your employment agreement will determine your rights. If you have been provided time of joining then you can demand compensation on the ground that other party have failed in providing you work. If your joining date has not been specified then you can claim compensation when you can show that cruising company will not hire you. As regards your visa you may contact US Embassy and know exact situation of your visa.

            The Apollo Group is in Miami, FL. You need to consult a lawyer. Here is a potential resource, provided by the owners of this site.

            Due to a recent promotion, I should now be referred to as Major Obvious.

            I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.

                The appropriate venue is likely Miami, FL. Generally, lawyers require you pay in advance.

                    Re: Cruise Ship Job

                    You have no legal standing to claim anything against a US company here, from there.

                          Likely several thousands of dollars. No, you do not get a free lawyer to sue someone in the US.

                            i dont have so much money. we are a poor family. so... thats it? i should give up on it coz i cannot afford a lawyer and other fees? feel so frustrated!!! If i win the case... how much will i get? i was promised a salary of around USD 750 per month on the cruise ship. so.. is it worth suing the company? or might be the case that i've to spend more than what i get at last as compensation.
