What are Staff regulations?

By enacting staff regulations, an employer provides substantially unified terms of employment to all its employeesThis fosters transparency and clarity and is widely used among all types of industries. 

Staff regulations usually are incorporated by reference in the individual employment agreements, which allows employers and employees to negotiate only those terms that are inherent to the specific position of the employee. 

While staff regulations may be amended by the employer, any amendment that materially affects the rights or obligations of the employee requires the consent of the employees, in particular if the amendments are detrimental to the employees. In addition, the individual provisions of the employment agreement take precedence over the staff regulations.
