Employment Offer requirements for other states

Federal law and guidance on this subject should be reviewed together with this section.

Author: Gloria Ju


  • When extending a job offer, employers in South Dakota must take care not to make statements that alter the employment at-will relationship. See Making an Employment Offer.
  • Employment offers that include restrictive covenants, such as noncompete, nonsolicitation or nondisclosure agreements, must comply with state law. See Restrictive Covenants.
  • Employers may condition employment offers on the completion of additional requirements, such as drug tests, ability tests and background checks, but they must be sure to abide by applicable state laws. See Conditional Employment Offers.
  • Withdrawing an employment offer could result in a promissory estoppel or detrimental reliance claim. See Withdrawal of the Employment Offer.
