Decided not to proceed with the job offer but the employer insist want me to start work. The offer letter stated 2 weeks notice period for resignation. Can I just inform the employer that I will pay them as an compensation? Please advise.

Appointment letter did stated as "probationary staff may be terminated by either party by giving 2 weeks notice in writing or payment of 2 weeks salary in lieu of notice."

Can I just send a msg to them and follow with email?

If you have not reported for work, just inform them that you have changed your mind about the job due to some unforeseen circumstances. Don't offer to pay anything.

Actually today I supposed report to work. But due to some medical reason I didn't turn up to work but I did informed them. I msg them that I need to take some break and unable to join them but the employer insist want to meet up with me. Can I just drop them an email to inform that I would like to withdraw from the job?
