I'm planning to start a new job with a startup that is based outside germany but in EU. They plan to setup a company in Germany in the next two months so that they can give me a legal contract.
Now, in my current work... I have a looooong notice period(6 months) and will like to resign this month so that the time can start counting. The issue now is I won't have a legal contract before then
Is there any document I can ask the company to give me that would be binding to them till when they are able to finally setup the company and then give me a binding contract. For now, the founder of the company has offered to send me a "Letter of intent" and an unsigned contract with the Swiss company... but I wonder if that's binding
Note: I know the founders of the company well, so they want me as much I want to work for them. I'm just trying to safegaurd myself
thanks for your help
