Could someone shed some light on the meaning of “consultation” in an employement contract. Te scenario is: employer changes the reporting structure and the portfolio of the employee. The reporting structure appears to have effectively “demoted” the employee because the employee now reports to a sub-level manager and the portfolio of the employee has been reduced. The employee deemed the previous reporting structure and the portfoloio as essential terms of the contract for reason of career advancement in a specific period of time. The employment contract specifically states that any such changes will be carried out in consultation with the employee. If there are any case laws dealing with such an issue will be welcomed.
