I work for a public sector organsation. Our employees are contracted to work on specific duty systems, as usual that duty system will consist of particular working hours, number of days on and off (on rota), and the requirement to provide cover on an "on call/standby" basis of an evening & weekends.
There has been a review of 1 of our duty systems which has resulted in changes to the starting hours, and the requirement that where a working day is a saturday or sunday then the employees must attend their palce of work (rather than be at home on call).
They are still contracted to the same duty system, its just the activity within that duty system that has changed.
- Does this change consitute a change of a contractual term?
