A job offer letter should try to contain the right combination of professionalism, optimism, information and, of course, relevant disclaimers. Court cases such as Williams v. Computer Resources, Inc., 851 P.2d 967 (Idaho 1993) show the importance of proper wording in a job offer letter. The date of a job offer letter can be very important as well. When writing a job offer letter, be sure to consider these five key elements:
- At-Will Employment
- No Annual Pay Rate
- Job Offer Details Beyond Pay
- Generalized Language
- Professional Review
Get further details on each of these elements by listening to 5 Key Elements in a Job Offer Letter in this month’s HRCast, a recording provided by our team of HR Pros and available exclusively on MyHRSupportCenter.
