Hello,

Good day. Just recently, I was interviewed by a new company and after discussing the compensation, benefits and other employment details, i signed a job offer. However, once I started working for the company and received my employee orientation, I found out that some of those that were discussed during the job interview were different from what were stated on the contract that I was about to sign.

I haven't sign any employment contract because those differences greatly influenced my decision to accept their offer.

My questions are:
1. I have been here for 2 weeks already, if I don't push through with the employment, am I liable? Will i receive compensation on the hours/day I worked for them?
2. The company is planning to send me abroad for training, they paid for my visa and some other travel related expenses. This will be covered by a 2-year.. If ever we can't work-out an employment contract, will I be liable for the said expenses?
3. I resigned from my previous job because of what we have agreed on the job interview. Can I ask them to compensate what I have lost (basic pay, eligibility on performance bonus, etc) because of my resignation?

Thanks in advance

1. Dapat hindi kasi they changed the terms. Medyo grey area yan, kasi if insist mo na hindi ka "employed" under them, then how can you ask for compensation. If you insist naman na employed ka sa kanila then kelangan mo pa mag render ng 30 days.

2. Did you sign anything regarding the visa and expenses?

3. No. considered future earnings kasi yan. Only actual damages are considered.

Tinanong mo ba sa kanila kung bakit nag iba? Was the job offer you signed counter signed by HR or your manager?

Thanks for the feedback sir.

1. So generally, I can opt not to be employed by not signing a contract if they will not honor what was discussed during the job interview? It would only be a bonus if they are still going to give me some compensation. Hindi ko na habol yun.

2. They gave me some cash to buy some clothing for my travel which I am very willing to return if needed. The only document I signed was a photocopy of the check with my name and date. I didn't sign anything for the visa although there were some email conversations for the requirements.

3. Thanks. This should be a lesson learned for me if I am going to discontinue this employment.

Hi Sir,

Thanks for the reply. I am still soliciting some advice before I "formally" talk with the HR and the Hiring Manager. Nagulat lang ako nung employee orientation. Buti na lang I haven't signed an employment contract yet.

Do you happen to know what are the PROs and CONs if I am not going to pursue this employment?
