Florida Atlantic University requires offer letters to be prepared for all new Administrative, Managerial and Professional (AMP) and Support Personnel (SP) employees. The FAU Employment Office will prepare a contingency offer letter as a part of the University’s background check process. After the completion of the background check, the hiring manager must complete a standard offer letter, which will become a part of the employee’s personnel file. In addition to traditional offer letters, other non-standard employment terms require offer letters as well, such as Acting, Interim, Provisional and Time-Limited appointments and Voluntary Demotions. Employees transitioning from a Temporary position to a line position will also be required to sign an offer letter. Below are links to the most commonly used offer letters. If you have an employment situation that is not addressed by the letters below, please contact the Employment Office for assistance in drafting an appropriate letter.
Offer letters must be signed by the hiring manager and the employee. Please forward the original signed letter to the Employment Office as well as the Personal Action Form (PAF) and other required documents.
