Getting ready for a return – flexible contracts

Posted on: February 11th, 2021 by Ginny Hallam

If you’re planning to continue the trend away from traditional and carry on with the contemporary, don’t forget to check that your employment contracts will keep pace.

Place of work – clearly setting out the place of work remains important – the consequence of failing to do so means you may find yourself with expenses claims for travel to the office from home.

Mobility – setting out clearly the terms of any flexibility and the circumstances when it might be withdrawn should avoid dispute if the new approach doesn’t work well.

Variation – we’ve all experienced that it’s impossible to predict what the future holds – giving yourself a general right to amend terms will provide greater flexibility to react to any future uncertainty.

Get in touch if you’d like us to review your current contracts or support you with making changes moving forward.
