Summary

  • Wyoming permits both verbal and written employment offers. See Employment Offer.
  • An employment offer should clearly state the terms of employment, particularly where employers intend for the relationship to be at-will. The offer should contain a Wyoming-specific disclaimer. See Employment Offer.
  • Employers must be mindful of their oral representations when communicating an employment offer, as these can become the basis of implied promises that are enforceable. See Verbal Offer.
  • Written employment offers can give rise to a claim for promissory estoppel. See Written Offer.
  • The offer should specify whether the offer is conditional upon any other factors. See Conditional Employment Offer.
  • Employment offers that are conditional upon results of a medical examination, give rise to special concerns under federal and state law. See Conditional Employment Offers.
  • Wyoming law permits employers to withdraw an employment offer without specifying a reason for withdrawing the offer. See Withdrawal of the Employment Offer.
