    Offer letter and Appointment order are two different documents. Signing an appointment order or contract before joining the organization is very uncommon.

    If the candidate and employer sign a set of terms and the content of the appointment order stipulates explicit terms for consequences upon not joining, then there is a scope for contract violation when the employee shows no interest in joining.

    So, if this is just a formal appointment order the scope for a legal fight is too narrow.
