What is Constructive Dismissal?
An example of constructive dismissal is forcing an employee to accept unreasonable changes to their conditions of employment without their agreement (for example, suddenly telling them to work in another town, or making them work night shifts when their contract is only for day work)
To claim constructive dismissal, an employee must be able to show that:
- They were mistreated in breach of the employer’s duty of trust and confidence
- That the breach was serious, resulting in the employee resigning
- That the employee resigned because of that breach
