Breach of Employment Contract

An employer should not vary the terms of a contract of employment without your consent. Consent can be verbal or in writing or indeed implied where you continue to work under the new terms for an appreciable period with full knowledge of the change in terms. It may be that your employer has expressly reserved the right to unilaterally vary the terms of the contract. However, the courts have a strict and narrow approach to such provisions. For example, an employer may be open to a breach of contract claim where they sought to vary or introduce new terms affecting fundamental contractual rights.

Our solicitors are committed to finding the best possible solution for our clients and will adopt various conciliation methods to resolve any dispute before considering litigation. Where court proceedings are necessary, our highly skilled and specialist employment law litigators will be on hand to represent you.

Cavendish Employment Law is founded on the ethos of providing responsive, solution-focused legal advice with full transparency as to cost. We understand that handling an employment law issue against a sizeable corporation is stressful enough without the worry of cost. We provide executives and employees with flexible cost options including fixed fee, capped fee, hourly charges and insurance cover. Depending on the value of the claim, we can provide advice on a 'no-win, no-fee' basis.
