Constructive dismissal

Constructive dismissal claims

Constructive dismissal occurs when an employer seriously breaches an employment contract, resulting in the employee resigning and bringing a claim in an employment tribunal.

To be successful you’ll need to prove your employer seriously breached your contract and that you resigned in response to it.

A fundamental breach could be:

  • Unilateral variations in pay
  • Changes in job content and status (including demotion)
  • Bullying or harassment
  • Discriminatory behaviour and conduct
  • Unsafe working environment
  • No support for you to do your job
