Editor's message: The contract of employment forms the backbone of the employment relationship, so it is advisable to ensure that your contractual terms are expressed clearly in writing. However, some terms are incorporated from staff handbooks or collective agreements, while others are implied into the contract.
Having agreed them, your organisation may wish to vary contractual terms. This is one of the areas where employers can get into difficulties, so it is important that you follow the proper process.
