My elder daughter works in the merchandising/marketing team of a fashion business. It's a fast-moving, exciting job and she loves working in the industry. The downside is that she is in a massive team and feels that as a result her career development  opportunities are going to be limited no matter how well she does. And she's also a bit fed up of the travelling  to and from work - which is a slow 20 miles each way.

 

So she took the initiative and applied for another job in a related sub-sector of the industry at a smaller company where she felt she could make more impact and, because it was a smaller team, she might get broader exposure to a range of new business areas. She got the job - which, of course included a pay rise. And, although its only a small consideration, a shorter journey into work with fewer slow traffic hotspots. 

 

She signed the contract and sent it back. Very happy. Her current employer has now counter-offered with a considerably bigger  pay rise and a promotion which she feels would be enough to make her stay.

 

She feels terrible that, having signed the contract, she now wants to withdraw it. Anyone know where she stands from an employment law point of view? This must happen all the time but I'm never quire sure what the right approach is... I would assume that the new employer would be understanding but could they get arsey with her about it?
