Q: I am in a sticky situation. I was hired to perform a security job for a property corporation in Minnesota. I worked from April 18 into mid-July, when I was asked to resign because I reported to an area I wasn’t assigned to work. Meanwhile, I had a verbal agreement with a property manager that I would be moving into a two-bedroom apartment, owned by the company I worked for, about a block away from my security post. I moved in July 1, and the rent was set at $650 a month until I could find a roommate. Once I found a roommate, I would pay the normal $920 a month with a signed lease.
