On the other hand, derogations from the performance of this work are generally carried out according to a method of variation established in the contractual conditions. Construction projects are generally so large and take so long that, from an administrative point of view, it is less difficult for the parties to agree in advance on a method of variation, so there is no need to amend the treaty each time the size of the work changes.

The amendment to the employment contract is, for lack of consideration, Wu Kit Man/Dragonway Group Holdings Limited 02/06/2017 , HCLA15/2016 The Trial Court (Tribunal) has briefly stated: that an endorsement to amend a worker`s employment contract by requiring the employer to pay the employee a bonus of 350,000 HKD was not acute, because the endorsement was only advantageous to the employee and the worker had not given sufficient consideration to the binding nature of the endorsement. Background and decision Wu Kit Man (Wu) was hired by Dragonway Group Holdings Limited (Dragonway) in May 2015 to help Dragonway prepare its listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. In October 2015, the parties have signed an addendum stating that “if the company or its holding company abandons the listing plan or if you leave the company before December 31, 2016 for any reason, a cash bonus of HKD 350,000 will be offered to you within 10 days of the end or end of the business and, in any event, no later than December 31, 2016.” Wu left Dragonway on December 21, 2015 and successfully argued in the labour court that the addendum was valid and binding and that she was entitled to the HKD 350,000 cash bonus. Dragonway appealed for three reasons: “The Labour Tribunal did not take into account the stressed part of the bonus clause, which provided for the payment of the bonus” in all cases by December 31, 2016, so that Wus had been introduced in advance. This ground was rejected by the Tribunal, it was clear that the phrase “no later than December 31, 2016” should allow Wu to receive her bonus by December 31, 2016, even though she withdrew less than 10 days before December 31, 2016.
