Alternative Work Offer Letter
The Alternative Work Offer Letter should be used as part of the process whereby the employer seeks to find an employee a position more suitable to the employee's present circumstances.
- The employee is subject to disciplinary or management interviews and hearings concerning work performance;
- lack of qualification;
- prolonged sickness absence;
- frequent sickness absences.
An employer should consider whether an alternative work offer exists within the organisation as an alternative to Redundancy.
If before the end of employment under the previous contract as a result of redundancy, you offer the employee a comparable job or one which is suitable alternative employment, and the offer takes effect immediately on the termination of the previous contract then an unreasonable refusal by the employee to take the alternative work could prevent a claim for statutory redundancy pay.
The employee taking such an alternative position on different terms (wholly or partially) to the original contract is entitled to a statutory trial period of four weeks. If, before or during the trial period, you or the employee wish the experiment to end, the employee will be taken as having been dismissed as from the date the original job terminated.
