Reasons to claim for constructive dismissal
There are many ways in which an employer can commit a breach of contract and a few examples of typical breaches are set out below. What matters is that the employer’s breach is fundamental, i.e. it goes to the heart of the contract of employment, leaving the employee with no choice but to resign.
The following are a few examples of employer’s breach of contract:
- The imposition of radically different terms of employment;
- Harassment or humiliation of an employee;
- Failure to properly support an employee during difficult working conditions;
- Excessive disciplining of an employee;
- Imposing a change in the employees place of work at short notice;
- Imposition of a reduction in salary or wages;
- Falsely accusing staff of misconduct or incapability;
- Victimisation or bullying of an employee;
It is important to note that, unless an employee promptly resigns as a result of the breach of contract, they will be deemed to have accepted the breach, and will not subsequently be able to regard the breach as a fundamental breach of contract.
