Is it standard for an employer to include a clause in an employment contract stating that the employee may be required to work at any other establishment or place of business of the company, either on a temporary or permanent basis, according to the needs of the business?
Hi, I've been asked to sign a new emplyment contract and thought some of the clauses seem iffy, namely:- 1. *Your normal place of work will be the XXX* *office. You* *may be required to work at any other establishment or place of business of the Company within the UK, whether current or future, either on a temporary or permanent basis according to the needs of the business.* 2. *Subject as follows, YYYYYY can terminate your employment at any time by giving you 3 Months written notice.* Interested to see what people think of this. Is this standard stuff. I'm unsure what would happen if I don't sign the new agreement. Any advice appreciated, I am in Wales. G

They both seem like pretty standard common terms of employment. NAL.

1 is normal, but can be abused. 2 concerns me as it involves you waiving the right (assuming you have sufficient tenure) to the right processes in case of underperformance and/or disciplinary.
