Alternative Employment – Successful Trial Period Letter
Where the redundancy of an employee is under consideration, an employer should consider whether there is alternative employment available for the employee elsewhere within the company.
If an employee accepts an offer of alternative employment on different terms (wholly or partially) to the original contract, he or she is entitled to a statutory trial period of four weeks. If, before or during the trial period, the employer or the employee wish to bring the trial period to an end, the employee will be taken as having been dismissed as from the date his or her original job terminated.
This Alternative Employment – Successful Trial Period Letter should be used to advise an employee that the trial period has ended successfully and appointment in the new alternative role is confirmed. If the trial period is successful, the employee will not be entitled to receive a statutory redundancy payment. This is because employment has not terminated and there is no redundancy.
This Alternative Employment – Successful Trial Period Letter is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the fields provided or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
