If you have accepted the job offer before you have signed an appointment letter or employment contract, you can withdraw your acceptance. This applies to the employer as well. The employer may revoke the job offer after you’ve accepted it but before you’ve signed any paperwork.
If you accepted a job offer verbally or through writing and you and the employer did not intend to enter into any further formal contract, then the acceptance can be considered as final. Due to this finality, the employer may take action against you for withdrawing from a final contract.
However, if you did intend to enter into a contract after a verbal/written acceptance of a job offer, the employer may not take any action towards you, for rejecting the job offer at this stage.
