Question:

I’ve just joined a company that has a history of giving employees a bit too much freedom. Management wants to change that and start enforcing things like regular hours of work. Is it acceptable to change an employee’s work hours from flex to regular 9 to 5 hours? Is that a fundamental change in the employment contract that might lead to a successful claim for constructive dismissal?
