Changes to terms and conditions of employment
If an employer wants to change the terms and conditions to an employees contract, they must get their agreement to do so. This can be done by consulting with the employee or their trade union representative, explaining the reasons for any changes.
Once any changes have been agreed, this then needs to be confirmed in writing.
If issues arise regarding changes to contracts that cannot be resolved by discussing matters, then it may be necessary to take legal action.
If changes to a contract are made without prior notice, an employee may have the right to refuse work under the new terms, claim constructive dismissal or be able to take the case to an Employment Tribunal.
We work with businesses of all sizes to try to prevent or resolve employment disputes in a cost effective manner.
