What can I do if I was hired but never put to work?

Question Details: I was hired into a company. I filled out all the paperwork and turned in my 2 weeks notice to my other job. I was supposed to start 08-19 but put my start date off to 09-09. They then put it off again and were supposed to call me last week for another start date. However, I have not heard from anyone in a week. I've left multiple text messages and emails for several people. Yet, none will return my call. Now I've been out of work with no pay for weeks, soon to be a month. Can I do anything for compensation or am I just out of luck? I live I FL and the corporate office is in NC. The job was a traveling position throughout the states. I'm at a loss. Is there anything that I can do?
