hi all,
i had received a call from a company and they said they will be sending offer letter by mail ... i have the right to accept or reject it right ...also was interestd to know when can a candidate be sued??

From India, Mysore
Why any doubt? Just because someone offers to give me some land, I am at liberty to decline the offer. Same goes for offer of jobs and wedding proposals.

Dear Kartik,
Of course , the right is reserved with you to accept or reject. But keep it in your mind, this stands for your reputation job market. This communications spreads like light speed in the job market. Simply rejecting an offer is not that good but by sending a regret letter would be tactful thing. Best of Luck.

As TS said, give us the full details.
You went for the interview
They are now sending you an offer letter. You do not want to work for them, why didn't you tell them on phone that you are no longer interested ?

You have the right to reject
Company cannot sue you for rejecting the offer.
As one of the member suggested, send them a mail explaining your position and reason for not taking the offer. Would be even better, if you can mail it before they release the offer

Hello Kartheek,

Firstly accepting and rejecting an offer letter is a different scenario and sue an employee is a different scenario.

Offer letters are only given when a candidate successfully passes all the phases of interview satisfactory as per the interviewer screening. There after an offer letter is offered. Here the choice lies with the candidate to reject or accept the proposal whether he is comfortable or not comfortable joining the organisation. Similarly authority lies with organisation that organisation may also reject or accept the candidate to offer the job even after accepting the offer letter.

Second scenario applies when an employee is already working for a company and if he has done anything wrong which has impacted the company reputation or growth or collateral damage etc. and that scenario company can sue an employee or decide to sue an employee.

So you need to know as to what context you are raising the query. Also one should give a complete scenario so that experts over here can give a valuable comments or suggestion which can help others. This blog is to give best possible solutions against the problem somebody is facing and not just put any type of questions and expect solution what you want to hear,
