Letter of Employment OfferA Letter of Offer of Employment is a document that is sent by an employer to an applicant who has been chosen for a job.
A letter of offer is a document that is sent by an employer to an applicant who has been chosen for a job. The letter officially documents the applicant’s acceptance of the employment offer. As an employer, it is wise to have this confirmation made in written form, especially with regards to the terms that both parties have agreed to. This is particularly useful to refer back to in instances where the employment conditions are disputed.
To be effective, the letter must be signed by an authorised representative of the employer (typically the HR manager).
