Re: Decline offer after signing letter of offer

Dear Mr. Siew,

If an employee has signed the letter of offer but decline the offer later on (before reporting to work), can the company take any action against him/ her? What If there is no clause stating in the letter about declining offer before reporting work. Is this governed by the labour/ employment law?

Thanks.

I don't think action can be taken against the candidate.

Such matter should be governed by the agreement. If nothing was mentioned, it would not be possible for the company to claim.

If the employee has signed the letter of employment (or appointment) but not yet report for work (say only start work 2 months later from today), and in the letter of employment does have a term for termination notice, does it mean the employee has to pay back the notice fees if he/ she is to decline the offer?

If the prospective employee changes his/ her mind after signing the letter of offer, is better to let her/ him go. You should count yourself lucky.
