What is a contract amendment?

Article author
  • Updated

A contract amendment is a change made to an existing contract. This means that when there is a change to the terms of an employee’s role, this will warrant an amendment to their employment agreement. Contract amendment changes include (but are not limited to):

  • Salary increase/change
  • Title/role change
  • Job description change
  • Job level change
  • Change in employee's hours (from full-time to part-time)
  • Adding/removing an employee benefit (i.e. healthcare allowance)
  • Upgrade of category or level group of the employee (if compliant with the local labor law of the country where the employee is hired)
  • Start date change (if the employee already signed the employment agreement)

To implement this change, a contract amendment request will need to be submitted.
