Letter to amend an employment contract


15 minutes to complete

Letter confirming a change to an employee’s contract of employment. For organisations needing to document a change to an employee’s contract of employment which has been agreed with them.

Is this right for me?

This document is right for your organisation if:

  • You have agreed with an employee some changes to a specific clause or clauses in their contract of employment and those changes need documenting.

This document is not right for your organisation if:

  • The change or changes you wish to agree with the employee have not yet been agreed.

What you'll need…

What do I need before I start?

• To have agreed the change or changes you wish to document with the relevant employee.
• The wording for that change or changes.
• The employee’s existing contract.
• To have considered knock-on amendments which may be required. For example, if hours are reducing, so too (usually) will holiday and sickness entitlement. All the changes must be documented.

Remember: If you don’t have everything you need you can make a start, save the information and return to complete the form another time.


Q: What is the process?
A: Once you have logged in and paid for the form you will be asked a series of questions. These questions help us to create exactly the right document for you.

Q: What if I don’t have time to complete the form?
