Modifying employment agreements | Part 2
Workplace change does not necessarily mean removing (also known as disestablishing) jobs (though this may happen) but it could mean that people’s jobs change. Workplace change can also be known as restructuring.
If an employer is considering making a change, their first step is to look at the employment agreements and workplace policies since these set out the basis for the employment relationship and the process for changing its terms. Employers who follow a careful change process will reduce their chances to claims of: - breaches of the duty of good faith -️ unjustifiable disadvantage -️ unjustifiable dismissal There are standard rules that apply to all change processes.
