Constructive Dismissal

A constructive dismissal is where an employer behaves in such a way that the employee can resign and say they have been dismissed because of the employer’s behaviour.

Constructive Dismissal

When an employee resigns in circumstances where they believe they are entitled to treat the contract as brought to an end by a fundamental breach of contract by the employer, it can be a constructive dismissal.

A common example of this kind of dismissal is where the trust and confidence between employer and employee is destroyed.

Abusive or discriminatory behaviour by an employer towards an employee, a serious unilateral variation of contractual terms by the employer, or conduct intended to provoke the employee’s resignation may well cause a constructive dismissal.

Usually an employee must resign without notice if they want to make a claim at an employment tribunal for constructive dismissal.
