Many thanks for your patience. It is not a legal requirement for an employer to issue you with a new contract every time your job changes and the fact that you have been working in a new job on different terms does not mean that a contract does not exist. A contract would be implied in any event, even if there is not one in writing or one that is now no longer valid due to these changes. So whilst you would retain the general terms of the previous contract, through custom and practice of doing this new role, an implied contract to reflect this would be in place anyway.
You may of course ask the employer to issue you with a new updated contract just so that you have something in writing that reflects what you are currently working but if that doe s not happen, then the changes would apply in an implied contract anyway. As long as there is evidence of what these are, then this could be challenged in the future should the need arise. But as mentioned, it is always best to have something in writing so you should certainly press the employer to issue you with a current and updated contract just so that you both have peace of mind of what the current terms you are currently working under are.
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
Please let me know if this has answered your original question or if you need me to clarify anything else for you in relation to this? Thanks
