It is good practice to take notes of all the negotiations and discussions you have and record the dates they occurred. This should be done both before and after you sign the contract. If the contract has commenced, any discussions that change the terms of the agreement become a ‘variation’ to the contract or a new, separate contract depending on the content and the way it is agreed. You may attach a copy of the agreed changes (or, for example, an email that confirms you both agree to the changes) to the original contract.
