MAN QUITS JOB TO JOIN NEW COMPANY, 1ST DAY OF WORK: “SORRY WE FOUND SOMEONE ELSE”

New employer cancels contract on first day

Advertisements

Well one of my ex-colleague who I’m in contact with, he had resigned from the company & was supposed to join a new company this wk.

It’s a new crypto startup from Australia & has a small office here. He went for several rounds of interview & they offered him attractive benefits plus salary & hence he decided to make a move to the company.

Contract signed & everything. He served his 30 day notice & left without any issues. Was supposed to join this wk.

But on the day he’s supposed to start his first day, the company calls him & tells him that they found someone else last min for the role & they apologize for not informing earlier. No further contact from that company

The dude is now at a loss on what to do & he called me up to tell me he’s in deep shit, he doesn’t know what to do. Is there any solutions for him? Like what can he do?

Netizens’ comments

  • No compensation or what so ever? This sounds more like rescinding their offer instead.
  • Name and Shame on glassdoor.
  • What does his signed contract say?
    Usually, if the employer terminates, they either have to give 1 month notice or pay salary-in-lieu. If his contract says this and the company is not complying with this, he can escalate the dispute to MOM since the company is being unresponsive.
