I signed to a new job, so I quit my old job, then the new job rescinded on me

23 days ago

|

I signed the offer letter on august 14th, then they found a better candidate, so now today they let me know that the job is no longer available. After I quit my old job, and declined 2 other job offers. Hopefully I just die in my sleep tonight.

    Call the HR managers at the 2 companies that you previously declined and say that the budget for the new job ***still*** has yet to be approved, you're no longer interested and would like to move forward if possible. If either of the 2 other companies contact you with renewed interest, you can make further considerations at that time. In the meantime *unfortunately* you need to keep applying for new opportunities.

    Horrible. Surely they know if they offer someone a job and a contract is signed then that person is going to quit their current job. Just awful.

      \> Tortious interference is a common law tort allowing a claim for damages against a defendant who wrongfully interferes with the plaintiff's contractual or business relationships. They made an offer which OP acted upon by leaving his current job (presumably in a legal manner). Sure, it's very difficult to prove, but you might shake them down for a couple weeks severance just to avoid having a lot of them dragged through proceedings.

    My parents both signed employee contracts that were rescinded. Well, it is scummy but maybe it’s not a very good company. You can try telling your previous employer you’d like to come back. I would try to negotiate. I think they owe you something. The company that withdraw the offer that is.

    Do you have a copy of the offer letter? Do you have a copy of the email showing you accepted the offer? If so, call a labor lawyer https://exchange.nela.org/memberdirectory/findalawyer Ask them to review both the offer letter and your written acceptance of that offer "if you have it." To your detriment, you relied on that offer and now you want a settlement offer for damages "IF" possible and atty fees "IF" possible because you resigned from your current job. Just find an atty who offers only a FREE consult. This is why giving 2 weeks advanced quit notice before starting a job isn't worth it. Employers aren't loyal anymore. In the future, and if ever possible when transitioning to a new employer, try to save up 3 vacation days or more and start the new job, see if its ok, then quit the old job. Employers don't care about you.

    Do not go to HR. HR is there to protect the company not you. r/legaladvice don't forget to include your state in the post if there's a offer letter, and you accepted the position based on that letter, that's most likely a contract or at least there is legal grounds in most places to support a claim of some sort for this ETA: i am not a lawyer, but I was a paralegal for many years...it is not a definitive source, but with these facts, it sounds like you have a claim, at least one I'd elevate to an attorney if I was taking your call at a law office, and that sub can help you determine if it's worth seeking an attorney

    I know everyone always says “do the right thing and give 2 weeks” but I’ve had this happen to me and ever since then I do what’s best for me. Employers don’t care about you. Work up until the day before you start somewhere new and then quit. That’s just me though.

    This is why I frequently, and in all seriousness, recommend that when resigning you should notify the workplace you're resigning from by calling them from your new job on your first day. While people have this idea inculcated into their heads that "two weeks notice" is a necessary or even beneficial thing, it does nothing but benefit the employer and creates nothing but liabilities for the employee. Obviously there are exceptions to this, but OP's predicament happens too often to ignore.

    Nope, nope. If you signed the offer letter, they have to hire you at the rate on the offer letter. Some recruiter fucked up monumentally. An offer letter is legally binding. This is my biggest fear, that I will send the wrong person an offer letter or have the wrong salary on it. I'd get fired in a second.

    I’m so sorry OP! In the UK, the offer letter itself is legally binding once signed and once references passed and start date given, they couldn’t rescind it without the potential of legal action. I’d definitely get advice. It’s awful now but you dodged a bullet - imagine working for them!

    That absolutely stinks. All I could really say is unfortunately you’re not alone. Hopefully you can reach out to the other companies ASAP and if they already hired for the role you applied to ask if they have any related positions open. As soon as I was hired for my last job, I got 3 interviews for much better positions and only took one. After only 2 weeks my job decided they wanted someone in person (job was out of my state). As disappointed as I was, i know there has to be a better fit out there and I hope the same for you too!

    Yeah, don't take this kind of abuse from employers. I would seriously look into a legal recourse if there is one! Unfortunately, we as workers have no rights but still, see what you can do. As far as burning bridges with punk employers like that go, who cares!!! Also, consider it a blessing you don't want to work for a company that does that. Offers you a job then rescinds it for a cheaper which I am sure they consider a better candidate. They will do it again to their employees as soon as they find someone they consider cheaper or a better value!
