1 Unsigned Employment Contract on Thu May 22, 2014 7:38 am


Arresto Menor

Good Day.

I have this situation wherein may natanggap akong offer na galing sa foreigner.
They hired me as an employee for their Manila branch which is to be built up pa.
I was a bit worrisome kung scam ba yun or hindi. May contract silang binigay sent through email. But I didn't sign it. I agreed to that contract through email. I didn't actually meet them pa. I just met them through skype. I give it a shot as an assurance na may trabaho ako pag natuloy. I didn't stop looking for other jobs even though may contract na ako na hindi ko pinirmahan. Let's call this company as Company A

Ngayon, may ibang offer ako na mas klaro at well established na sa Manila (Let's call this Company B). Stability wise, pinili ko yun kaysa sa Company A kasi mas may security and klaro yung benefits.

The problem is that Company A sent me a lot of e-books to review their technologies. I'm still hopeful that Company A will pursue in here.

Will there be a legal liability for me in case I turn my back on Company A? Will they be able to chase me for not fulfilling the contract?

Right now, Company A doesn't know that I've signed up for Company B. I don't know what to say. I would like to call it quits with Company A since Company B has clear mandated benefits and is already physical present in our area. While Company A is still finding an office and processing documents to setup their business here.

What would be the implications if I decided to hide from Company A? Cut all communications with Company A. Company A has my name and address. Would they be able to chase me for not complying with the contract that I didn't sign but I've only agreed on email? Can my response on my email that says that I agree to the contract be used against me? Is the signature equivalent to saying "I agree" on the email?

Please help po.

Don't leave company A hanging. Pinapasweldo ka ba nila? pano arrangement? Your email acknowledgment makes your contract to them binding. Tell them up front na ayaw mo and resign properly.

No salary yet. They just sent me the contract with my name and I didn't sign anything. I just said that I could start on the date specified in the contract.
