My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
Unless you agree to it cannot be enforced.
Because you have not signed the first does not mean you do not have an agreement. If you were working under the first and payments and other terms and conditions were being met by both parties then you can argue agreement by acquiescence.
You need to advise them that you do not agree with the new terms and will not sign it and that you rely on the original agreement you have been working with.
Set out what you will be losing if you agree to the new contract.
But make sure this is all in writing.
If they make the changes then you will need to hire a new solicitor in Australia to support you and seek and injunction against them implementing the changes.
The agreement is over but it does not mean it is non existent you have continued on it and until you both agree to change it it remains on foot.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
