Contract variation proposal letter template

£ 15

If you wish to vary an employee's contract / terms and conditions, issue this model letter template as a proposal of the variation, and to request a meeting to discuss.

What is this letter for?

When an employer needs to make contractual modifications to an employee's terms and conditions, they should always do so after consulting and agreeing with the employee(s).

Employers might occasionally be justified in unilaterally modifying workers' terms and conditions by terminating their contracts and re-hiring them on new terms and conditions under extreme situations, when there are legitimate and compelling business demands and agreement cannot be achieved.

'Fire and rehire' procedures should be used only as a last resort if revisions to employment contracts are critical and voluntary agreement is not available.
