Could you let me know when you will be able to look at this.
Hi Nicky thanks for your patience. Your proposal is both fair and reasonable. If you are asked to work to specific standards, yet have not been given details of these, you have every right to ask for clarification and contacting them before the deadline to clarify these is indeed a good move.
As to the letter, its contents are fine but just consider whether the deadline you have given is reasonable – that would of course depend on the volume and nature of the work so think whether someone is able to look at all the work you are handing over and make a decision whether it is to the required standard.
Thanks very much for this, but what I'm trying to establish is if she is sent this letter, and makes no communication with me prior to the deadline about altering work, and then on the deadline says the work is unsatisfactory does the sending of this letter have any weight i.e. that I said confirm before the deadline otherwise you loose your right to question on the deadline.
Sorry I hadn't finished typing there, and the former reply might be a bit confused. What I am trying to avoid is my line manager saying you cannot have the terms of the conditional release because the work is not up to standard on the deadline.
the letter will not provide a guaranteed get out of jail card if she decides to challenge this. It will help in any potential future negotiations and you should also push to have the standards defined as part of the agreement as then you both know where you stand
Ok thank you.
