Note: See the previous examples, Letters of negotiation of a job offer and Letter of negotiation for a job offer 2 (Mid negotiations) for the sequence of events preceding this example.
After your mid negotiation letter and response to the employer's counter offer, the employer has agreed to your proposal without making another offer.
By sending that second letter, and continuing to negotiate, you've made yourself $14,000 dollars.
Your next letter is a formal letter accepting the offer.
This is a binding statement under employment laws.
The employer is now your boss. After the negotiation process, it's advisable to achieve closure gracefully, and finalize the remaining issues quickly, with minimum fuss.
One of those issues is signing the employment contract. The contract is supposed to be drafted according to the agreed terms.
Your letter of acceptance needs to refer to the process of formally contracting under the new terms. (Check the contract, on receipt, to make sure it contains all the new elements of the package. It's not uncommon for an earlier version of the contract to be badly rewritten, and that's a real problem.)
The example here contains the acceptance of the offer, and the request for a new contract according to the agreed terms. This documents your agreement, but also includes a reference to signing a new contract, in accordance with the settlement. This qualifies your commitment to signing.
Addressee (Signatory of job offer letter or appointed negotiator, if applicable)
I refer to your letter of (date) concerning the (position title) job package. I'm delighted we were able to reach a settlement on the salary issue.
Again I must thank you sincerely for your efforts in these negotiations.
I'm pleased to accept the amended offer on the terms agreed.
I will sign the new revised contract as soon as possible upon receipt. The executed documents will be returned directly to you by an overnight courier.
