Hi there,

Sorry to hear about it.

If an employer /agency can withdraw a Job offer after its acceptance by the employee would depend on whether your job offer was 'conditional' or 'unconditional'.

If the Job offer was conditional , based on other factors such as-

  • references

  • criminal record checks

  • medical checks

  • proof of your academic /professional qualifications

  • proof of your right to work in the UK

An employer can withdraw a job offer if the conditions of the offer are not met, you fail to meet the suitability criteria of the job.

If the Job offer was unconditional, then it can not be withdrawn once it has been accepted by the employee.

You have claim for the breach of employment contract by the agency/employer

Expert:  Vineet S replied 20 days ago.

However, before approaching the court, you should try to get the matter resolved amicably by raising the issue directly with the employer first and:

  • ask why the job offer was withdrawn

  • explain the impact on you,

  • what you'd like to happen to resolve the issue
