I have accepted an offer and signed a contract that starts next month (from August).
However, now, I have a new job offer that I prefer. I would like to accept it and sign a contract for this new offer that starts from September so that I resign later after the employement from the first contract has started (using two weeks period notice).
Do you think it is possible and if there may be any problem?
The reason I don't resign the first contract before its start is that it incurs a penalty cost. But instead, since it is a probation period, I should be able to legally resign with a period notice of two weeks and start my next contract next month.
P.S.: Insights into German employment law would be appreciated
