Question:"A woman accepted a job at my company but I then had to withdraw the offer before she started work. Am I required to pay her anything since she did not actually take up work with us?"
As the woman accepted the job, it is no longer an offer that can be withdrawn. The fact that she has not actually joined you is immaterial. You have a legally enforceable contract with her. You therefore need to pay her the amount of agreed salary for the agreed notice period.
