To ensure you comply with the law and regulations binding contracts for employees it is essential to seek legal advice when varying employees’ contracts of employment.
Significant risks can occur when changing and amending an existing employee contract. An employee needs to understand why the amendment is necessary and compatible with the business needs and be clear on the decisions made and where they fit in. Starting with open and honest consistent communication is a good start, ironing out any issues early on and tackling objectives together ensuring everybody knows where they stand.
