Planning a Change to Terms of Employment

Planning a Change to Terms of Employment


This course will take a step by step approach to determining your plan to change terms and conditions of employment. We will start by exploring the business case for change, think about who needs to be involved and how we should engage with them. We will answer the question ‘Does your change require a change to the contract at all?’ and if so what this looks like and how do we manage risks. We will weigh up the options for achieving the change, from exercising flexibility in a contract, to seeking agreement, to consulting to dismiss and re-engage.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this workshop delegates will be able to:

• Articulate the need for change, what and who is involved and how individuals will be affected
• Work within the legal framework and summarise what changes to the contract would be required in a series of situations
• Draft terms that are fit for purpose
• Consult in a timely, effective manner at both collective and individual stages of the consultation process
