Changes to my contract

Changes to your contract

Some of your employment rights are protected by law. Others are part of your contract.

More information about which rights are part of the law

If your employer wants to change your contract they have to talk to you about it and get your agreement before they make the change. This is also true when one company takes over another company and wants to change your contract.
