APOLLO PROFESSIONAL SOLUTIONS - BREACH OF CONTRACT - PROMISSORY ESTOPPEL

I WAS OFFERED AND ACCEPTED A CONTRACT POSITION THROUGH APOLLO PROFESSIONAL SOLUTIONS AT $50 AN HOUR FOR 2 YEARS. AFTER RECEIVING A START DATE, I GAVE MY NOTICE AT MY PRESENT EMPLOYER IN PREPARATION TO MOVE TO OUR NEW HOME IN THE CONTRACT POSITION STATE. MY LAST DAY IS MAY 1ST. MY WIFE GAVE NOTICE AND HER LAST DAY IS MAY 20TH. WE ARE IN ESCROW ON A HOME AND HAVE ALREADY SPENT THOUSANDS IN ACQUIRING THIS HOME. OUR FORMER HOME IS ALSO BEING SOLD. I HAVE FILLED OUT FORMS, GOTTEN THE BACKGROUND AND DRUG TEST (BOTH FINE), HIRED A MOVING COMPANY AND A HUGE DUMPSTER TO THROW THINGS OUT. WE BOTH HAVE FLOWN BACK AND FORTH TO FIRST FOR THE INTERVIEW, AND THEN FOR WALK THROUGHS ON THE HOUSE. I WAS GIVEN A START DATE OF MAY 15TH. ON MONDAY, I GOT AN EMAIL (NOT EVEN A PHONE CALL), THAT THE JOB WAS CANCELLED. FOR NEARLY A MONTH, THERE WAS NO INDICATION THAT THIS COULD POSSIBLY HAPPEN, AND ON GOOD FAITH WE BEGAN OUR TRANSITION FOR THIS JOB. UPON TALKING TO THE MAN I INTERVIEWED WITH, HE ADMITTED HE THOUGHT IT WAS ROUGH GETTING THE SIGNATURES PUSHED THROUGH WEEKS AGO, AND YET NOTHING WAS SAID. NO DISCLOSURE. WE ASSUMED AFTER ALL THE PAPERWORK WAS SIGNED AND THE START DATE GIVEN THAT WE WERE SAFE TO PROCEED. WE HAVE LOST QUITE A BIT OF MONEY. NOW WITHOUT A JOB I COULD NOT ONLY LOSE THE HOUSE IN THE RELOCATION STATE, BUT THE ONE I HAVE HERE. APOLLO HAS CEASED COMMUNICATION WITH ME AND DID NOTHING TO RECTIFY THIS MESS.
