A bit of context: due to corporate restructuring I will not have a job in a couple of months.

So I have been searching for a job and I already have few promising interviews lined up. But I got an offer already and they are pressing me to either accept or decline very soon.

I was thinking of accepting it. At least it will give me some certainty, but I also expect better opportunities before the start date of the offered job.

I was wondering how bad it accepted the offer, then declined in a couple of weeks (before starting there). Can there be any legal implications even if I didn't see any such thing in the offer letter?


If there is no contract then there wouldn't be any legal issues with declining after accepting. It will look bad and you probably would have a hard time getting a job at that company in the future if you wanted to go back to them. But it won't land you in jail or court.
