During the duration of the employment relationship with a certain employer, it is possible and very often happens that certain changes occur in terms of the contracted working conditions, which require the need to adapt the concluded employment contract to new circumstances. This is achieved by concluding the Annex to the employment contract.
Therefore, the employer can offer the employee a change in the agreed working conditions (annex to the employment contract) when the employee needs to start performing other tasks in relation to those specified in the employment contract, when he needs to perform the same tasks at another place of work, in the case when the employee needs to be sent to work with another employer, as well as in other cases provided by law, general act and employment contract.
The procedure for concluding the annex to the employment contract is regulated in detail by the provisions of the Labor Law, and it implies that the employer is obliged to, along with the written annex to the employment contract, provide the employee with a written notice stating the reason for concluding the annex, then the deadline by which the employee must to declare whether he agrees to the conclusion of the annex to the employment contract or not, which cannot be shorter than 8 working days, as well as to instruct the employee that the employer can cancel his employment contract if he does not sign the submitted annex to the employment contract within the deadline. In any case, the employee reserves the right to dispute the legality of the signed annex to the employment contract in a separate court proceeding, that is, he reserves the right to dispute the legality of the offered and rejected annex to the employment contract in the procedure regarding the termination of the employment contract.
The procedure for concluding the annex to the employment contract is not carried out in situations where the personal data of the employee or the employer changes, as well as when the annex is concluded at the initiative of the employee.
The employment contract with the annexes that are an integral part of that contract can be replaced by a refined text of the employment contract, which is signed by the employee and the employer.
