This question already has an answer here:
I applied as a part time online teacher and got accepted. I haven't started yet, nor have I attended the orientation. When I applied, they said that I'll get a text the week after the day I applied but it never came so I looked for another job. I got an offer from a school much nearer to my place than the office I originally applied for.
The text came 2 days after the week they said it will come.
There is no agreed date of starting yet but there is already a date for the orientation. I was wondering if I can still cancel this contract? And what would be the consequences?
