Constructive Dismissal

If you feel you were forced out of your role, you may be able to make a claim on the grounds of constructive dismissal.

When you felt you had no choice but to leave your place of work, it may be that you were subject to constructive dismissal. This occurs when, even though an individual willingly resigned from their role, they were purposefully treated in a manner which made it extremely difficult for them to stay.

what is constructive dismissal?

Constructive dismissal often includes:

  • Work place bullying or harassment which is instigated or ignored by management;
  • Unreasonable changes to your role, including hours or tasks;
  • Being demoted without reason.

It is vital you approach management, HR or a union representative if you believe you are being bullied or unfairly treated at work. If that does not come to any positive resolution, or you have already left due to an unreasonable work environment, Ramsdens Solicitors can help.

We can discuss any work place issue from broken contracts to compulsory retirement, offering confidential advice and professional guidance. We will thoroughly investigate your claim and advise on the best course of action to meet the optimum resolution for you.
