How much notice to change contract of employment

A business / employer can make changes to the contract of employment if:
a) there is something in the contract that allows the changes to be made
b) the employee grants permission to the change
c) Employee representation agrees to changes (for example; a trade union)

It is possible for an employee to insist a change of contract to its employees, but it is greatly acknowledged that this should be a last resort for all businesses. This typically opens up negotiations when either party do not agree to changes that are proposed by the business.
