Drafting an Offer Letter

Pad of Paper & PenOffer letters are very basic yet tricky documents that aid a business immensely in the employment relationship when used AND when drafted properly. Given this is a legal document and one that can be used against you it is important to consult a professional and ideally an attorney when drafting one. Generally a good offer letter includes the title, start date, salary in payroll cycle terms, supervisor name, location of position, a statement that the offer is non-contractual, and a statement that the employment relationship is “at-will”. Some general reference to benefits can also be included, along with direct references as warranted to other documents that the new hire must sign as part of becoming an employee, including non-disclosure and non-compete agreements.
