Constructive dismissal

An employee may make a claim of constructive dismissal if they feel they had no choice but to resign, for example if they feel that there has been a fundamental breach or change to their contract.

Constructive dismissal refers to an employee resigning, with justification, because of the employer’s behaviour.  A constructive dismissal complaint could be made because of a significant breach of the contract of employment.
