California light manufacturing assembly company needs an offer

This answer was rated:

California light manufacturing assembly company needs an offer letter form. Is there a good one available on the web?
Thank you!

There are many good offer letter forms on the internet, however, the key component is that there is an offer, supported by consideration, with all of the terms laid out. Here is a sample that you may find useful. Keep in mind that an offer letter, to be most effective, sets out the requirements of an offer, while still giving you an out, in case one is needed. If you need any other help regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to ask.

excellent! Do you practice in California? I believe there may be some California specific language that can be helpful??!!

I do practice in California. The specific language that you are likely talking about can be found in section 2810.5 of the Labor Code. This section specifically requires that at the time of hiring, an employer must provide each new, non-exempt employee with a written notice containing the following information:


1. The rate or rates of pay and basis thereof, whether paid by the hour, shift, day, week, salary, piece, commission or otherwise, including any rates for overtime, as applicable.
2. Allowances, if any, claimed as part of the minimum wage, including meal or lodging allowances.
3. The regular payday designated by the employer in accordance with the requirements of the Labor Code.
4. The name of the employer, including any “DBA” names used by the employer.
5. The physical address of the employer’s main office or principal place of business, and a mailing address, if different.
6. The telephone number of the employer.
7. The name, address and telephone number of the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier
