What is job offer letter?
A job offer letter is simply a written offer of employment. If accepted by the prospective employee, then an employment agreement is created.
What information is included in a job offer letter?
A job offer letter will include a variety of information, such as:
- the name and title of the employee,
- starting salary (or hourly wage),
- work hours and place of work,
- vacation and benefits provided, and
- the date when the employment will begin.
It is a good idea to include an acceptance form so that the employee can easily accept the offer. If there is a written employment agreement, then it should be provided along with the job offer letter. A date when the employer expects to hear back should also be set-out in the letter. Enough time should be given for the employee to review the agreement, get a legal opinion, and ask questions before signing it.
