Example of a contract rescission letter

Many major clients hiring consultants do business with a certain number of preselected firms. Freelances are hired by the consultants firm and there services are sold to the client. The contracts are, on one part, signed between the freelance and the consultants firm, and on an other part, between the consultants firm and the client.

When the freelance decide to leave on his own, he must inform the client (respectively) and the firm. The letter of rescission for the consultants firm must be objective. Usually, the decision made is not because of the firm. You need to stay in good terms for further opportunities. Obviously, you need to respect the different specifics stipulations in your contract.

If you want to put an end to your contract, here is an example of a contract rescission letter to give to your consultants firm.

Friday January 20th 2008
Send to: Valérie Touchette
Groupe informatique inc.
1010, McGill, bureau 234,
Montréal (Québec) H3B 3L4

Madam Valérie Touchette,

For over a year now, I was working on the FEDE project at Desjardins through Groupe informatique inc. where I was able to learn and develop new knowledge. I strongly appreciated this period of time where I had a chance to work with great people, some even became good friends.

Other projects and challenges are calling out to me, some that will allow me to gain some new experience in a new background.

It is with regret that I inform you of the rescission of my contract linking Rambit Inc. and Groupe informatique inc. For that purpose, I inform you that I will respect the ten (10) working days delay. This being said, I will cease to work for Desjardins on January 2nd 2008.

I would like to thank Groupe informatique inc. and Desjardins for the trust they always had in me.
