This chapter considers the way in which the idea of variation is formulated and treated within the law of personal work or employment contracts, and how the treatment of variation fits into the analysis of the way that the law of personal work or employment contracts functions and fulfills its task. It argues that the courts and tribunals have tended, in their approach to the variation of personal work or employment contracts, towards a greater understanding than had previously been displayed of the personal work or employment contract as a relational contract. This tendency challenges the analysis of the contract of employment as a relational contract.
