Most employees believe that their employment contracts can seldom be varied without their consent.  However, as an Ontario judge recently confirmed, the tables are turned when advance warning is provided.

This month, my article on an employer’s ability to change your job was published in Canadian Employment Law Today, which is a leading publication for employers and human resources managers.  Excerpts from the article can be found hereI’ll be publishing additional articles for Canadian Employment Law Today and will post them as they become available. 

Initially my article was published in my weekly column in the Metro News, which is distributed throughout the Greater Toronto Area. The article first appeared on March 7, 2007 and can be read here.  Links to all of my recent Metro News articles can also be found here.  

If you would like to read the case, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice‘s decision, in Wronko v. Western Inventory Service Ltd, can be read here.
