An independent contractor may be terminated according to the specifics contained in the contract. Usually, this includes the requirement of an advanced notice. A termination letter is a good way to inform the remote worker or business of your decision.
Format and Content
The content is dependent on the wording used in the contract. Some contracts are written ‘at will’ and allow the contractor-employer relationship to be terminated at any time and for any reason. Keep the tone of the letter professional and the independent contractor termination letter format focused and limited to necessary and relevant information.
In independent contractor termination letter sample, the independent contractor is another business. The terminating party does not provide a reason for ending the business relationship, but instead, focuses on the information of interest to both companies.
