What is an employment offer letter?

An employment offer letter is a formal letter an employer sends to a potential employee to offer them a job position within the employer's business.

Is it mandatory to have an offer of employment letter?

No, it is not mandatory to have an employment offer letter as an employer can also give a verbal offer of the employment. However, it is good practice to issue an employment offer letter before the employment contract is given to the employee.

What has to be done once an offer of employment letter is ready?

The employment offer letter should be signed by the employer or its representative (if it is a company or LLP), after which it should be sent to the prospective employee. The employment offer letter can be sent via post to the potential employee's contact address or via email. The employer may also keep a copy of the letter for their records.

The employer will then have to receive the prospective employee's consent (which may be given verbally or written), after which both parties can proceed to signing an employment contract.

What must an offer of employment letter contain?

An employment offer letter must contain:

  • The details of the job being offered;
  • The salary or other compensation (e.g. commission, bonuses etc);
  • The proposed start date for the job position;
  • The type of employment being offered; and
  • Other details of the job which will be later contained in the employment contract.

Which laws are applicable to an offer of employment letter?

Employment Rights Act 1996
