Hi, I was offered a job a week or so ago. My DBS is being processed and I am waiting to start. I have not yet been given a start date but was told asap.

I've just had an email saying my induction will be the 1st December. Does this mean employment will commence after this?

I am desperate to start work as a previous job offer fell through leaving me in a right mess. (that's another story).

I'm worried now though that if this induction is not until 1st December (which is a Friday) my job might not start until a week or two after this.
Or is induction usually done once employment has started? I've been paying out for childcare which I sorted out back in September as I thought I'd be starting this other job by October and it's nearly Christmas. I doubt I will be paid before anyway but every week counts atm.

My induction day has always either been my first day of a job or held a couple of weeks after I've started because they are doing it with other new joiners. I wouldn't expect it to happen before you start.

I know others are starting in the next few weeks as there were several positions being filled.

You induction should be your first day of employment. Did they give you an offer letter? It should state in the letter your first official day of employment.

The company can't expect you to use your own time for training, you need to be paid during that time, as it's part of your job.
