Rescinding a Job Offer --Please Help!!!
We made a verbal and written offer to a candidate that was supplied to us from a staffing agency. However, we want to rescind the offer due to her recent difficult behavior she displayed while in our office last Friday to complete her new hire paperwork. She showed up 30 min late and offered no explanation. In addition, she was missing one of the documents (she knew in advance) and as a result her start date was pushed back. After she found out this out she became hostile and difficult to work with. I’m sure it’s risky to rescind a job offer to someone that has already given notice to their previous employer, but is it legal. Has anyone experienced this and how would you go about handling this with minimal liability?
Thank you in advance!
