Solicitors in Essex & London
Altering an employee or a group of employee’s terms and conditions or contracts of employment can sometimes be a complex process. Our employment solicitors in Essex and London have a wealth of experience when it comes to making critical changes this important documents.

If they are unlikely to be in agreement, or have already indicated they will not agree to the changes, then matters can quickly escalate to a dispute, or worse. A careful approach to changing contractual terms should always be taken, and legal advice is always recommended.
