The English Adjective

1.Has an assessment been conducted to evaluate potential products impact due to this nonconformity?

In this sentence, is the word POTENTIAL describing PRODUCTS or IMPACT?

2.In circumstances where the company needs to amend a permanent employees rostered day off, the employee will be provided with at least 1 week of notice

In this sentence, is the PERMANENT describing EMPLOYEES or ROSTERED DAY OFF?

Answer

All of your sentences are slightly malformed. The first one probably should say something like this:

Has an assessment been conducted to evaluate the potential impact on products due to this nonconformity?

This way, the adjective potential describes impact.

In circumstances where the company needs to amend a permanent employee’s rostered day off, the employee will be provided with at least one week of notice.

Notice the inserted apostrophe in employee. And yes, permanent does describe employee.
