Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
What do you specifically want to know about this please? Please note I am mobile today so may not be able to reply until later today thanks
Thank you. To be honest, after 7 years of being on these terms and not officially challenging them (such as refusing to work under them or making a court claim), it is most likely they would have become the contractually binding terms anyway. Maybe if you let it continue for a few weeks or months after it should have changed and then officially challenged them, you may have had a case, but letting it go on for 7 years would make it very, very difficult for you to legally challenge it now. There is of course nothing stopping you from raising this with the employer internally but hey could reject your complaint and in that case your only option is to try and make a legal claim but as mentioned that will be a difficult one to pursue and win.
I appreciate this may not be the answer you were hoping for but it is the legal position and I hope that it at least clarifies where you stand?
