A case of wide import on contractual rights of NHS employees


Date:



Andrew Allen successfully represented an NHS Foundation Trust in a High Court claim about the incorporation of the Agenda for Change Job Evaluation Handbook into the employment contract.

This case has implications for the extent to which the Agenda for Change Job Evaluation Handbook provides contractually enforceable rights for the hundreds of thousands of workers governed by Agenda for Change terms and conditions. The central issue between the parties was the degree to which a change in duties amounted to a ‘significant’ change entitling a worker to a re-evaluation of her Agenda for Change banding.

The full judgment is available to read here.

Andrew appears in employment, discrimination and other civil matters in the ET, EAT, County Court, High Court and Court of Appeal as well as in internal and professional disciplinary and regulatory disputes. He has appeared in the employment tribunals in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
