Changing terms and conditions

In a fast changing business environment managing employment costs is key to success

Changing employees' entitlements – particularly when it is to their detriment – is never straightforward. In the main, employees are unlikely to agree to changes to what they perceive to be an absolute right and this is only further complicated when employees have transferred into an organisation under TUPE.

However, our team can guide you through the process of implementing changes with as little risk as possible, helping you balance that risk against the ultimate benefits of the changes proposed, and adopting a calm approach to a process which can ultimately give rise to industrial unrest.

We can assist you to:

  • Prepare robust business case which will stand up to scrutiny;
  • Approach informal consultation to obtain maximum agreement;
  • Comply with your obligations of formal consultation; and
  • Consider best approach in the event that agreement cannot be reached with your workforce.
