021: What to Include in an Offer Letter

americans with disabilities act employment law florida emploment lawyer human resource consulting offer letter podcast Jan 27, 2022

 After the interview, the offer letter is potentially the next major interaction a prospective employee may have with your business. Offer letters are important for legal purposes and to prevent litigation. Many states have at-will employment, so there may not necessarily be a contract at the time of hire. However, for at will employment states, there should be an offer letter. 

In this podcast episode, we are discussing the dos and don’ts of offer letters. I discuss what should be included, and what you should not include. For example, include specifics like start date, rate of pay (include hourly or annual salary) and when bonus or commission will be paid. You will also want to include that the employment is at will. A few things you want to keep out are verbiage that mentions the duration of the job or what constitutes grounds for termination, as this may inadvertently create a contract in an otherwise at will state.
