I received a signed offer for a job, which I accepted. Before my start date, I attended a company meeting. I told my boss-to-be that I would be eager to attend, but would not feel comfortable participating because I felt I lacked sufficient experience at the company to speak. I was told that my presence would in itself be much appreciated.
Two days after the meeting, my job offer was rescinded. The reason given me was that the Senior VP thought I did not participate enough nor enthusiastically.
Do they have the right to do this? My offer letter says that I am an at-will employee, but can I look to them for any damages?
