This is a letter welcoming a new employee. The primary purpose of this letter is to provide a written document confirming that the employee is going to start working for the employer. In many cases, employers use this as a cover letter, to be sent to the employee along with their employment agreement (or employment contract).
How to use this document
This letter welcoming a new employee can be used by anyone wanting to welcome a new employee.
This is a good opportunity for the employer to provide a simple outline of some basic information, such as the employee's start date and start time, as well as instructions for where the employee should go and who they should contact on their first day. The employer can also attach various other documents (aside from the employment agreement), such as an employee handbook, or any other employment policies.
Once the letter has been completed, it can be printed, signed and sent to the employee. If other documents are being sent with it (such as an employment agreement or an employee handbook) they may also be attached with the letter.
There are no laws in Australia covering letters to new employees. However, general principles of contract law, as provided by the common law, apply to any employment agreement. In addition, general principles of employment law will apply to the employment relationship. This may include the National Employment Standards, as set out in the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth).
