A contract variation letter is used to amend the terms of an existing employment contract, with the consent of the employer and employee. But when might you need to make a change?
Change of pay
Your employee has gone above and beyond in the role, and it's time to reward them. It helps to record the change of pay in a contract variation letter.
Change of job title
Perhaps a member of your team has immeasurably advanced in the role, or perhaps, they taking a simple side step. If you expect their job title to change - as opposed to the entirety of their role - a contract variation letter can come in handy.
Change of working hours
Let’s say your employee has negotiated a change to their working hours, to better fit with their busy schedule. Keep things crystal clear by putting the change in writing with a contract variation letter.
Operations teams are renowned for keeping the day-to-day turning. Whether that’s a big ambitious project or simple changes, they keep track of it all. Simplify the process with a contract variation letter that handles the little things.
Having negotiated against Alice personally, we were confident of her legal skills and commercial acumen. They immediately submersed themselves into our business, acting as an extension of our legal team. They worked incredibly hard, are friendly, approachable and above all could always be counted on to retain a sense of humour.”
Rachael is commercially focussed, and her investment in taking the time to get to know our business means she takes a pragmatic, human-centric approach to negotiations. She proactively gets her head around the particular priorities and constraints on each engagement, meaning she hits the ground running adding value while being able to move at pace.
“Plume is anything but your traditional law firm. We found the lawyers to not only be experts in their fields, but dedicated to understanding our business, which is so important to finding innovative solutions to the problems that we bring to them. Every single person I’ve met at Plume has been a delight to work with, and that just makes all the difference. I really do feel in very good hands working with Plume.”
It’s just the entire way that Plume does business. I’ve never felt forgotten, I’ve never felt that someone else is too important, everyone’s so nice and everyone puts in 100% of the effort. Working with Plume is a real pleasure.
Our favourite thing about working with Plume is it doesn’t feel like we’re working with a law firm but rather an extension of our own team. The lawyers have become so embedded in our business, so commercially focussed and so tuned to our risk appetite and way of working
The best thing about working with the Employment team is the prompt guidance and support they have given with sensitive and complex issues. They offer professional and diligent advice as well as being incredibly genuine and encouraging. It is reassuring to know they are on hand to help at all times.
Everyone internally has been incredibly impressed with your work and I'm sure we will want to continue working together long-term.
Plume is quite clearly the best law firm in the history of the universe. With trademark protections bestowed upon us by your godly lawyers, we'll be able to focus on what we do best.... developing awesome medical technology for the blind community.
The corporate team helped us navigate through the sale of our business successfully. I appreciated their expertise and in the negotiations it became very beneficial to have their experience guiding our business decisions. I highly recommend - thanks again guys!
Quickly understood my requirements, carried out a thorough review of the facts and produced a user-friendly reference document tailored to my business which demonstrated a strong grasp of the commercials. Take on was pain-free and everyone was friendly and responsive. Would recommend.
Excellent firm. Professional and ideal for start-ups.
The team have supported us with day-to-day and strategic legal advice throughout the year. We're grateful to them for stepping up to support us through this important milestone in MyTutor’s development and for their commitment in getting the deal over the line.
We currently use Plume for our small business and have had a great experience! They are knowledgeable, professional and answer in a timely fashion. Would recommend!
Great working with the folks at Plume. The quality of their work was top notch, their communication was effective and overall happy with the services provided.
You are without a doubt the COOLEST law firm ever, and we love working with you! <3
They're doing amazing stuff on social media and standing out from the crowd. This is a gold standard in disruption.
You are continuing to shape the legal industry to be more creative, compassionate, and (most significantly) human. Keep breaking down barriers - your reach is further than you may realize 🦩
The team have come on board to support MyTutor, a fast growing EdTech business which previously had no in-house legal resource. The team have made a hugely positive difference in a short space of time and we feel incredibly supported by the team, who offer a commercial, low fuss and highly responsive service
Plume are a wonderful, professional and caring law firm. The communication and attention to detail we received by them in dealing with our case was brilliant. I will definitely be using them again for future needs.
The team provided excellent leadership and support throughout our funding process. In particular, they provided comprehensive ownership and management of the close process for AccelerComm, providing excellent, professional guidance from start to finish and enabling AccelerComm to focus on growing core business growth
