Print out and sign the letter ending a contract.

The letter ending a contract is a formal notice which must be served properly.

Check the contract you are ending for any special rules about serving notices and make sure they are followed.

In this kind of business notice, you will most likely serve notice by courier, post or email (if the contract allows email).

  • Post: if you are serving notice by post then it is recommended that you use recorded delivery and that you keep a copy of the proof of posting and delivery. Check you have the employee's latest address.

  • Email: check that the contract allows you to send notices by email and whether it requires you to request a "read receipt" as proof of service.

A copy of the letter will be saved in your Rocket Lawyer account.

  • If you post the letter then keep a copy of the signed letter that was sent and anything else included.

  • If you email the letter then keep a copy of the email that was sent and any attachments together with any "read receipts".
