If you are offered employment verbally and via letter and a terms of employment contract, and no where does it say provisional offer or subject to checks,

 

Can an employer then withdraw there offer and say there not taking application any further BECAUSE OF UNSATISFACTORY CREDIT HISTORY???

Hello there, thank you for joining the forum.

 

Do you think your credit history is relevant to the job? I can see if it was in financial services or you would be dealing with money, then it could be a problem.

The job was with a very popular worldwide car insurance firm. Regulated by the fsa.

 

There is once ccj on my credit report that i didnt even now about till friday as when they rang to withdraw offer i got access to my credit report online.

 

Can i request a subject access report from the potential employer to see exactly what showed up on there credit search. Also they offered job 4 days after second interview (had 1st interview 2 weeks ago) Should they not have done checks before making the offer????

I don't think it normally works that way. As was said the other day, employers make a job offer and then ask for references etc. Otherwise it would cost them a lot more to screen all the candidates.

 

Hopefully others will know more than I do, but I suspect that your problem could be because the company is fsa regulated. It sounds a bit strict though.

I can see why you're upset because it wasn't in writing. You need one of our resident experts to turn up and comment on this. It's not something I know about.

Sorry, I meant that you haven't been told in writing you say, that the offer was conditional on other checks.

Even if the job was unconditional, they can withdraw an offer giving notice. Staturory notice is one week, it's more than a week from the start date, so you aren't entitled to payment. In short - yes, they can. Sorry

Surely Statutory Notice, with less than one months continuous service, is zero, SarEl?

Possibly. The whole thing is complicated by the (possible - not sure about that) fact that the contract is already in place - allegedly. In such instances normal practice is to assume one weeks notice. Continuous employment does not start until you have actually turned up for work - but contract law does not need continuous employment.
