Rejected Offer

Forum Veterans,

Need your help with a seemingly complex scenario! I am a non-EU National

I have been employed with a organization A and they have issued me a B-permit (B1). I appeared for an interview with a company B and accepted the offer. Later on we found that my permit B1 cannot be transferred.

The new company B applied for a new permit B2 and it arrived by post with few changes on the permit (No company name mentioned etc, it only has the additional word "unbefristet" meaning unlimited)

Both permits B1 & B2 bear the same ZEMIS number

I have heard lot of negatives about the company B since, and no longer wish to join them. I had a chat with the HR folks and they said they would need to cancel the B2 Permit.

Does this mean I loose my permit altogether? I am still employed with employer A and had couple of months before joining B

Help pleaaaaaassssssssssseeeeeeeeee!

Did you tell company B you refused the job?

Did employer A actually agree to you staying employed with them or do they think you are leaving?

It sounds like quite a complicated situation.

Re: Rejected Offer

dont be too picky especially nowadays...

Anyway, take the B job, wait some time and look for better job...

Re: Rejected Offer

you have the job anyways ... so why not give a try and see if the reviews are indeed true... many a times what people's experience may not be what could happen to you.

That's what I would do especially as they got him/her a B permit without restriction. But it sounds like he has already rejected the offer. In which case his/her dream might just turn into a nightmare. Fingers crossed that's not the case.

Re: Rejected Offer

If you have already accepted job B, either verbally or in writing, then you are legally obliged to join them. The fact that you can hand in your notice on day one is neither here nor there.
