  • Most letters given to an employee by an employer do not destroy the at-will relationship. However, if an offer letter lists a specific length of time in which the employment will last, it could be deemed an employment contract by the courts. See Employment Offer Letters.
  • Florida courts have ruled that verbal offers that do not specify a length of time are at-will employment offers. See Verbal Employment Offers.
  • At-will employment offers can be rescinded at any time, even if the prospective employee has resigned from a job in reliance on the new employment offer. See Withdrawing Employment Offers.
