My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: South Africa
I have received a letter from a company suing me for losses on revenue in regards to an employment offer. I was offered a position at a company and said I will be signing the employment contract when i receive it (this was stated to a person at the company over skype) and send it back to the company in due time, however on receiving the employment contract i change my mind and decided to stay at my current employer as moving to a different state would have major financial implications on myself.
The company that i received the employment contract from is now suing me for lost of revenue as they signed a contract with another company i was suppose to be stationed at.
1. Does a skype conversation history hold up in a court of law?
2. I never signed the employment contract and gave them my reason as to why not, can they sue me for admin fees.?
