Variation of contracts


Over the life of an employment contract it is likely that some of the terms of employment will change. Some changes, for example, salary rises or promotions, are likely to be mutually agreeable, however, it is also possible that less palatable changes may be required. Employers should exercise caution in varying terms of a contract without obtaining the employee's express agreement to the changes.
