Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
Your employer has no legal obligation to offer a contract. You can ask for an "offer letter" but if your employer doesn't want to give you a contract then they are not going to give you an offer letter that creates any contractually enforceable obligations. So, it's sort of a futile request.
If it makes you feel at all better, the vast majority of employees work without an employment contract of any kind. Contracts are the exception, not the rule. Furthermore, most contracts do not prohibit the employer from changing the terms of employment or even terminating the employment relationship altogether. So, the comfort one gets in having an employment contract is largely illusory.
I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
If you do not require any further assistance, please be so kind as to provide a positive rating of my service so that I may receive credit for assisting you. Very best wishes moving forward.

I just wanted to followup with you to make sure that you did not have any further questions or concerns. For some unknown reason, the experts are not always getting replies or ratings (which is how we get credit for our work) that the customer thinks have gone through.

In any event, it was a pleasure assisting you and I would be glad to attempt to assist you further on this issue, or a new legal issue, if needed.
