Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. How long have you worked for the employer for?
What business reason has been given for the change and how much notice of the change have you been given?
Hi the first point is regarding the notice period. An employer is not entitled to unilaterally vary the terms and conditions of your employment. This means that they cannot change your terms and conditions without adequate notice which should be at least a week notice per year of employment. I do not think you have been given adequate notice on the basis of what you say. This means that if they change without adequate notice the changes will be void and you will be able to sue them for breach of contract in the Employmnet Tribunals for your losses.
They are entitled to change terms with correct notice but this should be done falrly.
You should therefore not suffer a financial loss as a result of this.
You are correct to have raised a written grievance and I hope this resolves the issue.
If the change is forced through then you can bring a breach of contract claim if incorrect notice has been given. If correct notice is given then you can either agree to the new terms or refuse them on the basis they are unreasonable.
If you refuse them then the contract is treated as terminated by the employer and the technical redress would be to claim unfair dismissal. Obvioulsy this is something you will want to avoid if at all possible.
Hi it depends on whether the new contract is introduced correctly or not. if it is introduced without correct notice there is a breach of contract. If it is introduced correctly then there may not be a breach of contract but this may not make it reasonable. The employer is not adhering to good employee relations in making you take out loans for the shortfall.
Yes a change in payment terms is clearly a change in terms and conditions. You should have been informed of this and consulted with and issued new contracts to sign.
No problem, please do remember to rate my answer and come back to me in the future if you need to. All the best with this.
