Expert:  Taylor replied 3 months ago.

ok thank you for that additional information! ill have your answer shortly.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
They send me the contract to sign to accept the job offer as a physician. but after I signed it they never send me back the signed contract. Now, how long do I have to wait before I can get out this contract to look for another job?
Expert:  Taylor replied 3 months ago.

thanks for the clarification, that makes it a lot easier for me to understand the situation!

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I donot have signed contract from them. Can I accept another job offer and walk away from this offer anytime or is there any time limit?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Please can you not call me and just answer me back here what to do now? I do not want to pay extra amount for phone call. this sign is keep bothering me to ask me to make a call for extra cost.
Expert:  Taylor replied 3 months ago.

when was the employment supposed to begin? have you spoken with anyone on the other side about cancelling? lastly, does the contract have a date which it must be agreed upon by?

Expert:  Taylor replied 3 months ago.

i apologize it is asking for a phone call- i believe i can adequately answer your questions in this chat!

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I would like to send them a letter saying if I do not get contract in 10 days, I will walk away because I have another job offer to accept. but I do not know what is the binding to me for this first job since I have signed it but they have not?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
ok thanks!
Expert:  Taylor replied 3 months ago.

Thanks for all of the additional information!

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
ok I will wait for your answer
Expert:  Taylor replied 3 months ago.

i believe contacting them as you had described would be an adequate way to handle this situation. in order for a valid contract to be formed there must be an offer and acceptance. Here you have provided the "offer" but they have not accepted your offer. until acceptance is made there is not a valid contract. Are you wanting them to sign the offer and pursue employment with them or would you rather cancel the contract?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
cancel the contract
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Can I give them a notice and get out legally? since I have another job offer to accept it.
Expert:  Taylor replied 3 months ago.

ok, if you inform the party that you no longer wish to pursue employment with them you may do so at this point. because they have not yet signed the contract, it is not yet legally enforceable.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
is there any time limit. it has been almost 10 days now the time I signed it and send back to them by Fedex.
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
ok can you give a language/material what to say please?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
can I give them a notice of 24 hours time limit saying that if they do not send me contract within 24 hours I am not liable for this acceptance?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I want to make sure I use proper legal language to notify them either way.
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
If I pursue for acceptance and force them to send me the contract how do I say?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I may want to pursue them for this job because it is very attractive job to me compare to second job.
Expert:  Taylor replied 3 months ago.

there is not a time limit when they must sign by. you could absolutely write/call them and say you want to have an answer w/in 24 hours or the contract should be terminated/unenforceable.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
ok great ! any advise ? let me know.
Expert:  Taylor replied 3 months ago.

if you would like to keep this job instead of the second job, i would contact the employer and discuss with them what the delay in signing is and/or if they plan on signing the contract. if their plan is to sign the contract, then i would have them do that ASAP and send you a copy of the completed agreement.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Thanks.
Expert:  Taylor replied 3 months ago.

do you have any further questions or concerns? once you are satisfied i would greatly appreciate a positive rating! it does not cost you anything further and it is the only way i am compensated by JA for my time and attention to your questions!

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
they said it will take two more weeks which I cannot wait.
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I think you have given answer what I was looking for to clarify. Thanks.
Expert:  Taylor replied 3 months ago.

alright, if you would like to cancel your signature on the contract you should give the company written notice that states you no longer wish to fulfill your part of the contract. does that make sense?

Expert:  Taylor replied 3 months ago.

let me know if you need anything further! wish you the best of luck and would greatly appreciate the positive rating when you are satisfied!

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
