Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
How long have you been working in your existing role?
OK thank you, ***** ***** it with me. I am in court today so will prepare my advice during the day and get back to you at the earliest opportunity. There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Thank you.
No problem at all
Many thanks for your patience. I cannot comment on how staying in the current job will affect your career prospects because that is not a legal matter, rather a professional issue which only you can decide on, knowing the employer and industry.
As far as the legal position is concerned in terms of the move, it appears you have not yet accepted the role. Until you have been given a formal offer and you have accepted it, you would not be obliged to vacate your current position. Also if you were given an offer you could negotiate to make it a conditional offer based on satisfactory financial agreement. So this is the best way forward – do not accept anything until you are satisfied with the terms of the offer. Just because someone has been given a conditional offer for your job does not mean the employer can remove you and replace you if you have not accepted a new offer or handed in your resignation.
