Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

Yes, you can refuse to sign the offer letter. However, that will not prevent you from being transferred if your employer wants you transferred to another department.

I understand that you may be disappointed by the Answer you received, as it was not particularly favorable to your situation. Had I been able to provide an Answer which might have given you a successful legal outcome, it would have been my pleasure to do so.

If you have additional questions, you may of course reply back to me and I will be happy to continue to assist you further until your questions have been answered to your satisfaction.

Would you please take a moment to positively rate my service to you based on the understanding of the law I provided by clicking on the rating stars---three stars or more. It is that easy. That is the way I am compensated for having helped you.

Thank you in advance. I wish you the best in your future,

but my salary cap did change . So if I do not sign the letter can I still accept the offer from another department ?
Expert:  LawTalk replied 1 year ago.

Yes, but once again, your employer has the ultimate decision as to whether you may transfer to another department.


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am not transferring . I want to apply for another job in another department . and I verbally accepted a new position in my current department . My question is can I accept the other position in the other department ?
Expert:  LawTalk replied 1 year ago.

Yes, you may.
