Employment offer letter
Letter of offer of employment to a new employee
What should an employment offer include?
Usually following an interview process, the new employer may wish to send a formal offer of employment to the new employee.
The offer letter is a binding legal offer from the new employer, capable of acceptance by the individual in accordance with its terms and usually within a specified period. If not accepted within that period, the offer will lapse.
Acceptance may be stated to be subject to a number of conditions, including:
- employment being on the terms of an employment contract which is included with the offer letter
- the employer taking up one or more satisfactory references regarding the individual, including from the individual’s current employer
