  • Signing a contract

    If you get offered a job, but you might get offered a better job later on, can you accept that job and sign the contract but then cancel it if you get a better offer? Or do you legally have to stick with the one you signed up for?

    Yeah, I've done it. Resigned before starting the job.

      Is it called a resignation though? Because it's almost a year before I start...

        Just call them up and say you won't be able to work there. I doubt they were expecting you to stay put for 1 year.
        Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

          It's part of my training year so I have to stick to the same place once I start.

            Unless they specifically stated that you must stay with them (which I don't think they'd do), you should be free to go. :insha:

              Well, I was due to start on a Monday, and I notified my boss on the weekend that I got a job in Kuwait instead. I suppose its a resignation. Of course, I probably won't ever get a job at that company again, but I'm in a better job, Alhamdulillah.

              Your situation seems to be different.

                  Salam,
                  Islamically we are supposed to fulfill our contracts and oaths. Basically signing a contract is like a promise that you will accept the terms and work there. I don't know if it is ethical to just change your mind at the last minute because you got a better offer and leave the company in trouble because they wont have a worker they need . Best to check with a scholar.

                    Genius! Why did I not think of that? Now all I need is a device that will clone me and allow me to be in two different cities at the same time. Another problem solved by agony aunt Shamil

                        Why can't you accept/reject the offer later on? Is there a time limit?

                          Isnt' there come clause in your contract that says either party can cancel the contract by such and such means. There's always a get out clause.

                            Someone at my workplace did it. Signed the contract and submitted it but called later to say that he was offered a better job and will not be turning up.

                            There might be something near the probationary period saying either party can cancel within the first 2 weeks of employment .. or something along those lines.
