I accepted an offer, signed a contract and I am expected to join in 3 or so weeks. I am having second thoughts about this now due to a clause in the contract. I did raise this clause as a concern and delayed the contract signing by a week. However, the recruiter eventually convinced me to accept the clause.
Obviously, I take full responsibility for signing the contract and I haven't decided to definitely pull out. I was just curious what are the legal implications of pulling out the contract before the join date? This is in the UK.
