OK I know I have to take the answers with a pinch of salt on here as it's all anonymous and don't think there are many employment law lawyers on here, but wanted to run my scenario past people just in case someone has been through something very similar, so here goes. 30 April - offered post in Qatar 1 May - offer letter comes through via UK based recruitment agency (usual conditions subject to references, medical etc) Letter states don't resign til we tell you late May - Realise have to resign at some point prior to May 31 deadline, so resign my post June - various back and forth about documents etc, medical passed, references fine 7 July - Agency calls and says job has been pulled, but offer no reason as to why the post has been withdrawn. To this date still have not been given any reason why the offer has been pulled. Now I am not after sympathy, or tales of "you silly boy" for quitting without written contract, I just have one question. If the offer has been withdrawn for a reason not mentioned in the offer letter, then do we think I can chase them for salary for the notice period? (Caveat, union phone call today says I probably can). Just wanted second opinion.
