Re: Letter of Offer vs Letter of Employment

Hi Mr Siew, is Letter of Offer same meaning with Letter of Employment?

Earlier, my manager instructed to issue a "letter of offer" instead of "Letter of Employment" to a Maintenance Manager candidate which his date joined was 1st October 2010, He has accepted the terms & conditions by signing a duplicate copy of Letter of Offer dated 20/9/2010 & decided to join us on 15/10/2010 . My questions are:

1) Letter of Offer same meaning with Letter of Employment? Is letter of offer consider as letter of Employment
2) If not same, should I need to issue a Letter of Employment to him?

Please advise! Many thanks!

An offer is an offer. If the offer was accepted, you give a letter of employment before or at the time he reports for work. Sometimes, we might not be that accurate as to which is which. I think it all depends how the document is worded.
