Congratulations! However, before accepting your job offer, it is important that you carefully read and understand it. While you may have been offered the job of your dreams, the offer letter for this job is actually an employment contract that may take away your rights.
The language in the job offer letter will have been drafted by a lawyer and can change and manipulate your rights, often to the benefit of the employer rather than you. It is therefore in your best interest to ensure that the offer you are accepting protects you and your needs.
Some key details to look out for in an employment contract include: whether the employer could change your job duties and pay without any notice to you, what your rights are if you are terminated without cause, or whether there are any non-solicitation clauses that prevent you from certain behaviour after your job with this employer ends.
