About this document

There are many circumstances in which an employer may make an alternative offer of employment.

It may be an alternative to redundancy or it may be in light of the employee becoming pregnant (perhaps her current work is unsuitable) or disabled.

Whatever the reason, it is critical that certain issues are addressed clearly, from the start. If you fail to do so, you risk the employee claiming unfair dismissal in some cases.

This is a simple, effective letter template that lets you make an offer of employment elsewhere in the business. It is suitable for an employee at any level, from part-time trainee to director, in all types of businesses of any size.

It helps you comply with employment law such that it is more difficult for the employee to claim constructive or wrongful dismissal, and acts as a precursor for changing the terms of employment.
