Please Tell me What you Think or Know...?

Ok, I was hired by this Employment company to work at a group home part time. But in order to work this type of job, I had to take 3 different classes and become certified. Each class was one evening and about 3 hours. The classes were for stuff like CPR and other stuff... These classes are required by the state.

So anyways, after they said they hired me, they told me to take the classes, which I did. I completed all three of them last week.

Today I found out that the company wants me to wait until January 14th to start working.

Then I asked them when I will get my Certificates that I earned for each of the three classes I took, and they said they will hold onto them until I have worked for them for a certain length of time.

Can they do that?

I mean, I put my time into taking these classes. Yes, they paid for them, but still can they just keep my certificate that I have earned from the state? That's like blackmail, isn't it?

    Unfortunately they can, as they can always say that they misplaced them, if someone complains on your behalf. They want to ensure that you do not take your certificates, and go somewhere else, as they've invested the money in educating you.

    My opinion is that if you completed a class for certification you should be able to get your papers on this, or at least a copy.
