If you have been subjected to poor treatment by your employer, whether as a one-off incident or over a period of time, you may feel that you have no choice other than to resign. Being forced to resign as a solution to your problem may give you the right to claim ‘constructive dismissal’ and you may have a case to take the matter to an Employment Tribunal.

If you feel you have a case for constructive dismissal against your employer then speak to one of our solicitors in Manchester on 0161 930 5151, e-mail employmentteam@gorvins.com or fill in our online form and we will call you back.

Do Not Suffer In Silence

While at work, your employer is responsible for ensuring that you are not subject to any treatment that makes your working life unbearable. If you are subject to such treatment you must try not to suffer in silence. If you do nothing about the problem, then you may lose the right to do anything about it. If you have enough evidence to prove that you received unfair treatment, you may be able to make a claim for constructive dismissal.

What is classed as constructive dismissal?

If you feel that the behaviour of another person in your workplace has been so unacceptable, forcing you to resign from your position, you may have been a victim of constructive dismissal.
There are a number of circumstances that may be possible constructive dismissals:

  • Bullying or harassment
  • Unreasonable changes to working hours or the environment in which you work
  • Not being paid for work completed
  • Demotion for no legitimate reason
