Okay let me help feel better.

As long as you no go report duty on the first day still okay.

Even if they able to legally charge you, they wont do that because the cost for court and lawyer is higher than your 2 months salary (taken your salary is not more than 7K).

furthermore, you case will only be entertain minimum 6 months or can be after a year. So they wont go chase you unless you stole company information or something severe.

all these hassle will make them not chase you hehe

Note: after you send email declining the job just ignore their phone call or email.whatever they say dont care. as i said before they surely wont go for legal action to get a mere 2 to 3 months salary. taken your notice is that long lor. hehe

Read the offer letter. Probationary period is usually 24 hour notice both ways. My philosophy is to always be open and honest.

Just say that you got another offer that is more suited to your aspiration. Thank them for the opportunity they have given. Then move on.

True. I don't think the company will even bother to follow up with legal cases, they will need to fill someone in sooner.

But then they may hate you for wasting their time.

I have encountered the same situation, my advise:

1. Check the offer letter on your start date, if you have not started it should be alright.

2. Speak to the hiring manager / recruiter as soon as you realise you do not want to commit to the job offer. Better to speak on the phone then send an email stating the reasons of not being able to commit.

By doing this you should be able to minimise the damage of relationship between you and the company. The networking you built might be useful in the future.

Btw, congratulations on your new job offer biggrin.gif

Read the offer letter if there are any clauses. Just inform company A ASAP and be nice and apologetic about it. Never piss off a HR he/she could be recruiting you for your next job. If you tell them far in advance usually they will just wish you luck or counteroffer but kinda CLM before joining, I don’t recommend. As long as 1 week before if not they may have started processing admin work (ID etc.) I’ve declined twice before, no issue whatsoever (unless you are a CEO as world is small)

1st, i contact to hr department Com B that you having long vacation for 1 month(lied) or say lied say attending funeral ceremony for 1 month. So, hope they can prolong the job offer you.

By then you job at COM A see it suitable or not for 1 month. If not, then immediately resign . Then call COM B wish to work there early as possible.......how about that......

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!

Has this been resolved?

If you haven't started, just inform them by call/email will do. Don't worry too much about the contract, if there isn't any penalty clause.
