During your employment, your employer may wish to make changes to your contract. This could be for several reasons, such as a restructure, a change in work location, or to save money if business isn’t going well.
Generally, changes can only be made to your contract if you agree (although there are exceptions). Understanding the impact of the changes can help you weigh up the proposed changes against the alternatives. For example, if the company is trying to save money to avoid redundancy, a review of the changes can help you to decide whether the impact of the changes is proportionate to the risk of opposing them.
If you want to negotiate changes to your contract, we can represent you in discussions.
We can advise on such things as:
salary and bonus schemes
financial and other benefits
protection of confidential information and intellectual property
post-termination restrictions, non-solicitation and non-compete clauses.
