You’ve made an offer and the employee has accepted but now something’s changed. HRM looks at the dos and don’ts of withdrawing a job offer.

    What case are you quoting from the HRT in 2000?
  • Caitlin Nobes | 07 Mar 2014, 10:13 AM Agree 0
    The case is Davis v Toronto (City) 2011: http://canlii.ca/t/fl5bm

    The incident happened in 2000, but the case was decided in 2011.

    My wife was offered a job at Kelsey's and, as she was told, she tendered her resignation at her current employer. Today (2 days before her last shift, and 3 days before she was due to start at Kelseys) they sent her an email saying they overhired and have to withdraw her from the hiring process. Does this qualify as wrongful dismissal?

    It doesn't qualify as wrongful dismissal, but it likely is actionable. You need to speak to a lawyer.

    I would like to comment on Gareth McGuinness matter. You have to consider the cost of the legal action and the time it takes. I mean you might be legally right, but a cost and benefit analysis is needed

    What if the new employee accepts start date and then on that day states they are not available for two additional weeks?

    I have gotten a job offer with the starting date being next Monday. The company has never asked about my immigration status so far. My work permit is valid until 4 months from now, but it will be extended and there is absolutely no problem. I am just a bit concerned that on my first day when the company finds out about my status they be afraid to make a one year contract with me. Is there any chance they would withdraw the offer because of that? Please advise as if there is any chance of that happens I might not quit my current job. I look forward to hearing your kind advice. Thanks a lot.
