Employment Letter Sample

Employment letter sample

Below is a sample of an Employment Letter sample (or Letter of Offer) for a permanent job position.

This is not the most comprehensive offer letter (I learned from a law practitioner that the longest Employment Letter he’s seen in Malaysia is 12 pages long), but it consists most of major points and elements you should be alert of when you are accepting a job offer. Compare this with your current offer letter you received recently, and notice if there are major points not covered. We shall discuss about this in other posting in the near future.

  1. Where is the job function? I think that is quite critical too otherwise they will employee might dispute on what is his or her job function is.

    What about termination due to misconduct and so on? That is also very critical nowadays.

  2. Hi there,

    If I’m not mistaken, during probationary period, the employer must allow the employee to improve themselves before actually terminating them. I believe the clause in the termination does not apply under labour law. That is why interview process must be exercised extensively so that we only get to employ competent people who would not bring problems to us.
