Author: Stephen Simpson

When to use this model coronavirus/recruitment letter

Use this model letter to retract a new recruit's job offer because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

Note: Employers that are considering unilaterally withdrawing a job offer need to think very carefully about whether they withdraw a job offer now or seek to postpone a new recruit's start date. The unliateral withdrawal of a a job offer should be a last resort as this is a breach of contract.
