    Company backs out after verbal confirmation for job

    Initially, I got a verbal confirmation for a job but after a week, HR department of the same company calls up to inform that they have got a better candidate. I had already put my papers at my current organization. Please share a solution to tackle this sudden problem.

    Re: Company backs out after verbal confirmation for job

    Hi aspirant

    You should be very careful with such things nd should not take them so lightly. You should not have just believed in the verbal confirmation by that company for a new job but should have taken a written confirmation in order for no doubts to exist. You should not have put your papers in your current company just because of that verbal confirmation for a new job. Now you can't even take any action against them as they never gave you a written confirmation like an appointment letter or something . You don't have any proof against them and so can't do much in this case.

    I definitely understand your problem now, so the best solution to this that you can request the HR of that company to give you a job. Tell them that as they gave you a verbal confirmation for a new job , so you put your papers at your current organisation . So you request them to give you a job as now you don't have anything in hand as you were completely dependent on their job. You hope that they will understand your problem and will do justice with you.

    Now if the HR symapthises with you, then its good for you but in case he is still adamant and does not give you a job, you can try to stay in your present company and tell them that you will like to continue with this job as there was some misunderstanding previously which led you to put your papers. You hope that they will allow you to continue with your job.

    I hope that you get a solution in this case. Good luck

    hi
    in this competitive world and such professional lives, you should never trust onto a verbal confirmation anywhere in your career, because the verbal confirmation does not have any kind of prove that you have been given the assurance. Now nothing can be done for this problem. All you have to do is that you must be aware enough and never ever believe on the verbal confirmation of any company and If any company gives you the verbal assurance, ask then to give it in written with the official seal on it

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is always good to go in writing for any job or something else,because you will have no any evidence of oral or verbal order or direction.

    I think you have got your offer letter & appointment letter after your consent with the offer letter.If so you can meet the employer of company head who is above the manager HR & request to accept your joining letter.if you have no any written order to join the job,request the manager HR to hand over your papers/documents & try for another good job,because you can not move for any legal help without any evidence & you can not expect any legal help instantly.

    You can register your resume to free job portal sites such as www.sarkarinaukri.com & www.monsterindia.com for early call for another interview.Also you should go through employment news paper for any advertisement suitable to you.

    Have patience & good luck.

    Hii,
    To rely on the verbal commitment is the blunder you have committed, and as now you haven't got any kind of proof that you were assured of the job , unfortunately you can't do anything about this. But in your present firm, you can talk over the issue and can negotiate with them regarding your papers, hope if they have liked your performance and if you were an asset to the company , you will probably save your present job. Make your decisions wisely and don't be too quick to jump on any conclusion, first have look at what the reality is

    It is quite sad to know that you had to face this sort of situation.Verbal confirmation of job should not be trusted by like this.There can be various instances in which one will not get the job which was verbally confirmed to him/her.Hence one should not trust the job offer blindly and not go for other alternatives.

    There are instances in which a company does not give the job to the candidate whom it had verbally confirmed.This can rise on various grounds like if the company goes at a loss,it can stop the recruitment and not further intake of candidates.It can also reject when it finds a better candidate to fill up the vacancy.This has occurred in your case.


    You cannot adopt legal help since there are no written evidences as you had been confirmed verbally.So the option of legal help is closed.The only option left with you is approach to the concerned organization's HR and request him to rethink on the decision and to offer your the job.You can just request putting up your good performance in during selection and nothing else.


    If you find positive response,it is well and good.Otherwise it will be better if you go for other alternatives and search for other jobs in other companies.Since you had been selected in this company,so it proves that you have the caliber.Hence you can crack the recruitment process in other companies as well and get selected

    Re: Company backs out after verbal confirmation for job

    Dear this is not being good with you because when you have got a verbal confirmation for job then that company must give you the job for which you have been appointed and this is against the rules of recruitment process but dear in this case you may not complain against that company because you do not have any type of proof which proves that you were promised for job in that company and until you will not have any type of proof, you may not take any type of action against that company but if you have any type of proof as call letter, Email or Phone, Message for job from that company then you may go to the court but before going to court you should go to that company and ask them the actual reason that why you are not being appointed for job when you have resigned from your current job and if they say that they have got a better one for this job then make them remember about their promise and confirmation and if they say that do you have any proof then you must tell them that i do not have proof but sir this is not right because i have left my job and because of you i am currently unemployed and if you do not want to hire me then give me compensation because i lost my job because of you or give my appointment in your company otherwise i would go to court which would not be good for both of us that is why please try to understand my situation and give me the job and if you will get any new job then i would leave your company but presently i need financial assistance which only may be done with your help

    All the best
