The scenario is this, I have already accepted a job offer from Com A. Then now I received another offer from Com B which is more inclined with my skills and seems to be my type of environment.

Is there any way for me to cancel my offer from Com A? Will there be a any legal repercussions? Will I need to pay for anything?

Need some serious advice on this. Thanks!

signed an offer letter, but the offer letter has no clauses or terms stated, just plain offer letter with position and salary

Usually if you just signed the offer letter and haven't started yet, you should be able to give a 24 hour notice to leave.

Unless you signed a document explicitly say you need to pay penalty if AWOL then they cant do much

Just give them a call to inform them

Though not sure about other companies but usually for call centres, if you MIA for 3 days in a row, it is consider self termination. Had a colleague who did that. Never came in to work for 3 days in a row, tried calling him, whatsapp, all never replied eventhough he read the messages.

Well just report in on first day and give 1 day resignation notice will do. most jobs during probation period only need 1 to 5 days notice for tender resignation, for your case, just show up at first day and tell manager you can't accept the job and give reason bla bla bla and you may leave.

I called and told them that I am accepting a different offer. They relented and said ok. In general it’s not worth the hassle nor the legal fees so companies usually don’t take action

So long as you haven't started it shouldn't be an issue. Of course if you cancel at the very last minute like what i've done prepare to be blacklisted.

usually most offer letter will come with "employment contract/terms" including terms of terms of leaving/resignation.
If you fail to observe those terms then you are in breach of contract, the company doesn't need to state what they can do when you breach a contract but they can definitely pursue the breach with legal recourse.
Most likely however you will get blacklisted and your name may be passed on to other employers via "unofficial channels" and you would be less reputable.

you only signed offer letter but not even reported to them first day at work, so at least call them up to notify your regret pronto... i doubt the company will bother to pursue you in court, that's a waste of time and money, besides, they should have some short listed candidates after you... but just leave you a bad reputation for that particular company (you gain a karma for letting the guy after you to get a job, if that's what s/he wanted smile.gif)... not long ago had a person signed offer letter at our company but then failed to turn up the 1st day supposed to report at work... when HR called the person only then found out he had gone back to school instead! My HR was piss at the person's irresponsibility...
But meh, she continued with more interviews, and left comment to my boss about that guy. One unofficial bad record, period. so that's all as far as i can tell...
