Employment Offer: North Carolina

Employment Offer requirements for other states

Federal law and guidance on this subject should be reviewed together with this section.

Author: Jessica Sussman


  • In North Carolina where there is no additional expression as to duration by an employer, a contract for permanent employment implies an indefinite general hiring, terminable at will. See Making an Employment Offer.
  • Employers may extend conditional job offers. See Conditional Employment Offers.
  • As a result of the presumption of at-will employment, employers may withdraw offers of at-will employment even if the employee relocates in reliance on the offer. See Withdrawing an Employment Offer.
