I have recently found myself on the receiving end of a job offer from a small business. I have never worked for an organization with fewer than a thousand active employees, so the relative informality of this process has me a little bit off-balance. I want to give my two week notice as soon as possible at my current employer, but only if everything is 100% squared away with my new employer. Is there anything specific I should have in-hand before I do this? Currently all I have is a "Job Offer" document, naming the employer and position, which states the pay and benefits. I have signed and returned this document, but do not know if there is some sort of formal response to this I should receive and keep on record. Could anyone shed light on this process? Is a "Job Offer" like this legally binding? Or should I be asking the employer for additional materials confirming my employment?
Thank you, in advance, for your insight!
