Making things verbally known to employees is not adequate.
A person is guided by his appointment letter and if subsequent changes are made detrimental to employee ,they should be given full awareness of change.
Employment is a mutual contract and not a unilateral contract/decision.

Any policy changes are usually updated in HR portals in large companies. It should apply to your org also. If your company is small-medium sized org, HR should circulate revised policy to all employees concerned.

Policies are made for the employees to follow, if they are not shared with them, how you expect them to follow. Not only the policies you have mentioned above but all the policies company has made which directly or indirectly affects the employee either immediately or in the long run.
