  • Verbal employment offers are permissible under Arkansas law. See Making an Employment Offer.
  • Employers should confirm the essential terms of the employment offer in writing. See Making an Employment Offer.
  • Employers intending to create an at-will employment relationship should be careful when extending an offer so as not to create an implied contractual relationship with the employee under which the employee may be terminated only for cause. See Implied Contracts.
