Summary

  • Although an employer is not required to provide a newly hired employee with an offer letter or confirmation letter, employers are encouraged to provide new employees with a confirmation letter setting forth the wages, hours and other terms and conditions of employment. See Employment Offers.
  • Where an at-will employment relationship is intended, a confirmation letter provides the employer with an opportunity to reaffirm the employment at-will relationship. See Employment Offers.
  • Conditional employment offers are permitted under Wisconsin law. See Conditional Employment Offers.
  • Restrictive covenants should be signed as part of the offer process. See Restrictive Covenants.
