Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. When was the new job due to start and is the employer likely to suffer a financial loss as a result of you doing this? I.e. have you been given any training or any other expenses incurred by the prospective new employer?
Hi Jenny, Thank you for getting in touch so quick. I am due to start my new job on 1st October. There should be no financial loss to the employer as a result of this as I am coming in following growth of the company and not as a replacement for another member of staff. There has been no contact to references from my application as of yet as I have not yet given them permission and I am not due to discuss my formal employee rights etc until a few days before I start.
HI this kind of thing happens all the time. As you have not signed a contract and they have not suffered any loss there is no legal action they can take against you at this stage for changing your mind.
I hope that this puts your mind at rest and all the best for the future.
If you have any further questions please do ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you.
Thanks so much Jenny. I was worried about the implications but apart from them possibly being annoyed that puts my mind at rest.
