Hi everyone,
I got the job offer and I signed the contract few days ago and I'm supposed to start this job at the beginning of August, the company is still dealing with all of the documents and I haven't received copy of signed contract by them.
Just today I received another job offer that in general is better in terms of salary, location, benefits and future career development. I was curious if at this point I can decline the first offer without any legal consequences, as the second offer is just more attractive.

Thanks for any advice

What did the contract say about withdrawing?

Yes, you are free to do whatever. Even if you had signed a contract and started, you would most likely be under some probationary period where you could have left with minimal to no notice period. Just email them now to decline.

Well done on the other job,

Greg

There's nothing about that, that's why I'm not sure. The contract just covers the termination of it, after the start date, which would be one week of notice in the first three months.
