An employer or employee may wish to change the terms and conditions within the contract of employment. For such changes to be lawful they should be agreed between the parties otherwise an enforced change could potentially amount to a breach of contract. Guidance on varying a contract of employment is available in the Agency’s Advisory guide, which can be accessed using the link below.
The Agency’s Enquiry Point is available to employers, employees, trade unions and others. Enquiry Point advisors provide information and advice on a wide range of employment matters. The Enquiry Point is also an important contact point for identifying circumstances, or clients, who would benefit from being referred to other Agency services.
The Enquiry Point provides clear, confidential, independent and impartial advice to assist the caller in resolving issues in the workplace.
While the advisors cannot provide a legal opinion they can help callers gain a better understanding of their rights and responsibilities as well as identifying possible options to help resolve their issues.
