Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
The general rule: Legally, unless you received a commitment in writing which by its terms provided it would not be withdrawn, an employer is entitled to withdraw it. That said, you reasonably relied on their promise to your detriment and left a paying position. You can therefore on that basis seek to have them compensate or honor the commitment on basis of those actions, which would be an exception to the general rule. A lawyer letter to that effect would have more impact and may lead to settlement.
