What do I do after quitting one company for another upon their request and I havent worked since?

I worked for a company, found a better job. The company I was going to told me that I couldn't put in a two week notice because they needed me to start the next week. I quit the job and have worked two days and two training days since. It has been over a month, I have contacted the HR person that hired me and each time I get the same response, which is that I will be called back and told what time to be at work and who I will be working with. This doesn't happen. I show up and am told to go home and they will let me know when to come in. This doesn't happen. I quit a decent job expecting to have a better job but it seems I dont have a job at all. What should I do?

In the short term, communicate clearly (preferably in writing) to the new company that you were promised and expect full time employment. It's up to you to figure out how to do that without ruffling feathers. The new company's promise to you may or may not be enforceable. If they don't put you to work full time, please review the situation with an experienced employment attorney.
