Quick Check Series: Offer Letter

Updated: Feb 10, 2020

Attracting top talent is key to your company's success. The offer letter is likely the first formal communication between you and the prospective employee - make a good impression, while protecting the company. The offer letter is a critical component of the employment relationship.

While a simple one or two page offer letter can suffice for many positions, some positions, including executive hires and commission based hires will need a bit more detail.

If you want to perform a Quick Check of your general offer letter, here is a start:

  1. At-Will Provision

  2. Position/Title

  3. Exemption Status

  4. Compensation

  5. Statement of Conditions/Contingencies

  6. Confidentiality Clause

  7. Benefits Overview

  8. Company Policies

  9. Non-compete/Non-solicit (if applicable)

  10. Mandatory Arbitration (if desired)

Once you go through these, consider unique needs of your company and make sure to address those areas as well.

In June we are offering a complimentary offer letter review. Why not have us perform the review for you?
