A constructive dismissal is a claim that can be made against an employer who has committed a serious breach of contract, which has led to the employee feeling that they have no choice but to resign. The breach of contract can be either express (written into the contract) or implied (not written into the contract but understood to be part of it). In order to succeed in a claim for constructive dismissal, the employee must show that the breach of contract was serious enough to justify their resignation.
If you are an employee who is thinking about bringing a claim for constructive dismissal, here is some advice from a legal adviser.
