What to Include
Every salaried employment offer letter should contain clear details so that the new employee has an accurate understanding of the offered position. The letter will generally include the following:
- The employer’s name and contact information
- The date the employer drafts the letter
- The candidate’s name and the title of their role, should they accept
- The employee’s responsibilities and duties
- The salary, payment schedule, and how they will be paid
- Any benefits the employer will offer
- When the candidate can expect to start work
- The deadline for acceptance and a place for the candidate to sign
- A closing statement
In most states, employment is presumed to be “at-will,” meaning the employer or the employee can terminate the working relationship at any time for any legal reason. To ensure the candidate is aware of this, many offer letters will inform them that there is no contract term and the employer retains the right to terminate the employment relationship at any time.
