Questions about constructive dismissal

Here are some common questions we get around constructive dismissal:

Q: What is constructive dismissal?

A: Constructive dismissal is where your employer’s conduct has destroyed or seriously damaged the employment relationship and you resign as a result.  It is a difficult test to meet but less serious conduct by your employer can still enable you to negotiate a termination payment from your employer.

Q: I am unhappy with my employer’s conduct – what should I do?

A: If you think you may want to stay in your role then the best thing to do is raise your concerns with your employer and try to resolve them.  If you want to leave, then your employer’s treatment can be used as a basis to start discussions about a settlement agreement whereby you resign with compensation.  If this is not possible you may be able to resign and claim constructive dismissal

Q: Should I resign and claim constructive dismissal if I can’t put up with my employer’s conduct anymore?

A: You should not resign until you have sought legal advice.  Constructive dismissal can be difficult to prove and by resigning you give up options for putting pressure on your employer, such as raising a grievance. You may harm your prospects of obtaining compensation from your employer

Q: I have less than two years’ service, can I claim constructive dismissal?

A: There is no separate claim for constructive dismissal and the requirement to have two years’ service to claim unfair dismissal applies unless your employer’s treatment of you is discriminatory or linked to a limited number of other situations such as whistleblowing.

Q: Can I claim constructive dismissal because of something that happened a while ago?

A: No, you need to act quickly or you will lose the right to claim unfair dismissal.  This does not mean you should resign without first seeking advice
