1 Revoke of signed job offer/contract on Sat Apr 14, 2012 1:10 am


Arresto Menor
Hi. I would just first like to ask, is there a difference between a job offer and a contract?

An employer/HR manager gave me a written job offer/ contract (signed by HR) stating the position, my starting date, my wage salary, and the benefits that they will provide after the 6 months probation period. I did accept their offer and the hr said to wait for other details. But then, as the days went by, the HR was reasoning out all the time saying that they cannot process my employment "dahil on leave ang mga execs".. until the day of my starting date (supposedly) came.. I received an email saying that they decided not to hire me anymore because "one employee got available to do the job instead".

Is it even legal to do that here in the Philippines? Likewise, is that kind of reason valid?

Kindly reply. and thank you.

(Adding to this, one of my friends applied to the same position and got accepted, they emailed her the same thing with the same reason)

in my opinion, there was a breach of contract, but not termination of employment because it never started. it entitles you to damages.
