Contracts of employment

Clio SpringerEditor's message: The contract of employment forms the backbone of the employment relationship, so it is advisable for employers to ensure that contractual terms are expressed clearly in writing. We explain why in Employment law manual > Contracts of employment > Formation of the employment contract > The importance of written terms.

Having agreed contractual terms, employers may wish to change them, and this is one of the areas where they can get into difficulties. See Varying the contract for guidance on this issue.
