Joining a new firm. Where i am now (UAE) the common practice for employment is as follows
- you submit for job post
- if they think they want you they interview you
- if you pass then they will send you an offer
- you accept the offer
- they prepare the full contract
- Sign the contract and start working
if you are still in stage 5 and the company asks you to come and start working, doesn't that create an issue between you and the employer, in a sense that they can watch you and observe you and they have all the rights to revoke the offer because the contract is not signed yet?
and the same time if you refuse to come to work unless you sign the contract that might give a bad impression to your employer.
What is the way to handle such situation ?
