Consider whether changes to the contract need to be negotiated or simply consulted about as good practice.
Remember that any agreement to change terms must be communicated to the employee.
Avoid breaching the existing contract of employment. Where there is a fundamental breach, the employee might resign and claim constructive dismissal at employment tribunal.
Do not impose a change to the contract unilaterally. Unilateral changes to contracts of employment will constitute breach of contract.
Determine whether there is express provision in an employee’s contract for the proposed variation or whether implied provision exists for the proposed changes.
