Constructive Dismissal Solicitors
If you are forced to leave your job through the way you are treated, when this treatment amounts to a fundamental breach of your contract of employment, this may constitute constructive dismissal.
Grounds for Constructive Dismissal
There are various situations in which this could arise. For example, you may be subjected to a pay cut, your employer may take no action to protect you against bullying or harassment, or, against your express wishes, you are moved to a different job. In such circumstances, you might feel that continuing to work for that employer would be intolerable, but may also be reluctant to terminate your employment without another job to go to. Any of the above reasons can help prove constructive dismissal.
Constructive dismissal is a serious issue. We can help you negotiate a settlement with your employer, including the provision of an agreed reference to support your search for another position, before you terminate your current employment. Alternatively, we can advise you on how to file and manage a tribunal claim.
Either way, you need to act quickly because any delay in acting may be interpreted by either your employer or a tribunal as acceptance of your situation. If you decide to terminate your employment and file a claim with Acas, prior to instigating tribunal proceedings, we can advise you on your deadlines by which you need to do so and help you through the relevant processes.
