General flexibility clause could not be relied on to unilaterally vary contract

24 February 2015 #Employment

The EAT has overruled a tribunal decision that the National Audit Office was entitled to rely on a general right to vary clause to reduce employees' entitlements without their consent.

The decision is a useful reminder that employers will generally find it difficult to rely on a general right to vary clause. (Norman and others v National Audit Office UKEAT/0276/14.)
