Constructive dismissal

Constructive dismissal

Constructive dismissal occurs when you are forced to resign from your employment due to a fundamental breach of the employment contract by your employer.

The behaviour of your employer must have constituted either a serious, one-off breach of contract, or an accumulation of incidents which together amount to unreasonable behaviour.  To successfully claim for constructive dismissal, you must be able to show that your employment contract has been breached in such a way that had the effect of making your position untenable.  Resignation in such circumstances is a significant step, so you should take advice on your situation as early as possible.
