I told them I need to give my current employer a notice period of three weeks. Then I received an offer letter with a start date which respects that. The offer letter says it is subject to background checks. I signed the offer letter.
I am talking about a consulting agreement.
If there's a delay caused by a background check and the start date needs to be pushed back, should a new contract or contract amendment be signed including the new start date after I receive a note from HR telling me I am clear?
