Unfair constructive dismissal

I felt forced to resign from my job.  Can I make a claim against my employer?

If you felt forced to leave your job against your will because of your employer’s conduct, you may have a claim for constructive dismissal. You usually need to have worked for your employer for two years before you can make a claim for constructive dismissal.

The reasons for leaving you job must be serious.

Some of the reasons might be that your employer:

Did not pay you
Demoted you suddenly and for no reason
Forced you to accept unreasonable changes to your terms of employment
Allowed other employees to bully or harass you
Took away benefits such as a company car, for no reason
Forced you to work in unsafe conditions
Did not give you support that you needed to do your job
These reasons can be a one-off event that triggers your resignation or a pattern of events over a longer period.

What should I do if I think I have a Constructive Dismissal Claim?

A claim for constructive unfair dismissal would need to be received by the Employment Tribunal within “three months less a day” from the date your employment ended.  Given the narrow time limits, you will need to decide whether you want to pursue a claim for constructive unfair dismissal or not, fairly swiftly.

You should consider seeking advice from an employment solicitor urgently.  We are here to help.
