I am an HR head at HR consultancy firm. few months back we had made an offer to a candidate for onsite job opportunity at client site in UK,
everything was smooth candidate had resigned from his then current job but all of sudden after 20 day we received an intimation from client site that project is cancelled due to unavoidable circumstances.
Now as the purpose of hiring the candidate was no more valid hence we withdrew the offer made (offer withdrew before the candidate joined us), now that candidate is serving us notice to pay the damages as we withdrew the offer and later he didn't found a suitable job.
From our end we tried harder to post him on alternate clients here in India but was not so.
Kindly advice what shall we do! as things were not in our hand..
