Document Overview

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 document enables both the employee and employer to formally acknowledge and accept the conditions of the employment arrangement, prior to commencing. This is particularly useful to refer back to in instances where the employment conditions are disputed.

This document complies with the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) and the National Employment Standards (NES).
