What is Constructive Dismissal?
Constructive dismissal (sometimes called constructive unfair dismissal) is when an employee feels forced to resign because their employer has fundamentally or seriously breached their terms and conditions of employment. Essentially, the employer’s actions mean that the employee feels that they cannot continue to work for their employer as the trust and confidence in the employment relationship has been destroyed.
