Good day

In November 2021 I interviewed at CPUT for a lab technician position and was successful in getting that position. In December 2021 I resigned from my previous job and enquired about my starting date at CPUT and was informed that my contract had not yet been approved. In January 2022 I asked the same question and received the same answer, and now in  February 2022 they let me know that it was decided that they would not be taking on new contract positions. I would like to know if I have any grounds to take legal action, as all that was left to do was sign the contract?
