This is a very harsh reality faced by one of my friend, which I am sharing with you. He was working with a FMCG as Sales officer & quit the job because he got a good offer from the competitor in same field.
This fellow took tendered resignation to his present employer & got clearance from previous employer.
On his joining date when he reported to his next employer, they refused him to join without assigning any valid reason.
As far as I know it is not covered under ID Act. The only remedy is under Indian Contract Act.
Now my question is what is the legal remedy available to this fellow & how to proceed.
Pl revert back with your suggestions.

Hi
I do not think he can do anything. He should not have had left his organisation without an offer letter, because he has to be communicated in some way or the other that he has been selected for a job.

Hi,
i really pity ur friend. He should have been more prudent.
we exactly dont know what would have happened between the between the formar employer and the present employer. in this given situation one cannot give any suggestion or opinion unless the truth should be known. normally any company would not venture this sort of dirty move and your friend was a victim. But this unethical hr practises are still exercised by certain family run companies.
i earnestly wish your friend the best in all his endeavuors.

Hi
Unless your friend has any documentation or correspondence about an offer of employment and subsequent joining date, he can do nothing.
If he had good relations with his previous employers, he should try and approach them and explain their position.
Otherwise, tell him to post his cv on a website, or you can pass his cv on to us so that we can try and fit him somewhere.

Vikaram,
The situation is really grim for the person who is going thru this and is without a job.
What we are left with just to guess different theories which may have worked.
In this world where one says do not even trust your own child, your friend has just accepted the verbal commitment and has not requested for a written communication from the new employer. Possibility is that there has something transpired between the previous and the current employer.
One thing he could do is make efforts-whats os ever and meet 'his to be supervisor' to find out what went wrong and try and prove himself along with briefing the person about his commitments and the repurcersion of no job---------may help
Cordially,

Dear Vikram
Its a cruel world but wish your friend was not so naive....
one needs to take an official communication, either in form of an offer letter or an appointment letter before taking any steps.
Request you post his cv on the portals available...but i sincerely hope he has already got another job...

Thanks a lot for the support shown by CITEHR Community. He has got another job at a lower salary. but its a harsh truth such practices are common in small Lala culture companies. Regds, Vikram Singh

Personally i feel these kind of things should be brought in lime light. Okay we all heard that this happened to him. We need to bing this company to highlight.. May be in news... This is worst for the person who has gone thru it. Today news channels shows all negative talks so much.. why can not they show something like this...

Hi Friends,
There is no legal obligation even if the company has offered the candidate. They have all right to take it back. But these sort of practices should be avoided and HR should be ashamed of such a practice even if he is forced to do that.
I also recommend to highlight the name of the company atleast another HR professional will not get trapped in the pray. Many small companies engaged in such activities really disturb the talent and they are afraid of all small companies.
This community should encourage the ethical practices and also strongly condemn the unethical practices.

Hi,
Even I faced this just 10 days back. I got offer of HR Manager at Gold Souk (I am purposefully naming the company - to make everyone aware of this company involved in such unethical practices). They offered me this position and sent me an email with salary details and asked me to join in 10 days (ie, on 1st May). I requested that i will be comfortable to join from 15th May. Then I kept waiting for the reply for 10 days when finally on 2nd may when I called them, they said that someone else has already joined them. It was a real set back because I had made all plans accordingly.
But, even i can't do anything because i do not have a proper offer letter.
