My employer agreed to reimburse my COBRA for this month because they did not have their health coverage in place, as was agreed upon. I extended and paid the COBRA upfront and mid-month I was offered a new position and resigned my current position. Now the employer has notified me saying they are rescinding their offer to reimburse my payment because of my resignation. I have emails to show our agreement. Since they agreed to cover these costs because their coverage was not in place, can I sue to get them to reimburse this cost as was initially agreed upon?

You would be suing them for the cost of one month's premium, and this would be silly. Besides, your resignation may be enough to justify their refusal. I also suspect that you have a 30 day grace period under the former employer's coverage, and you may be able to use this to your advantage. Talk to the carrier.
