Constructive dismissal

Legal support for constructive dismissal claims

Having recovered significant amounts of compensation on behalf of employees who have been constructively dismissed, if you believe you have a constructive dismissal claim our employment lawyers can help.

Our dedicated team of specialist employment lawyers can provide you with clear advice as to your prospects of success and the likely value of any claim for constructive dismissal. We can also represent you in negotiating compensation on your behalf and/or representing you in Employment Tribunal proceedings.

Constructive dismissal claims can be pursued if an employee terminates their employment as a result of a fundamental breach by their employer of their contract of employment. Fundamental breaches can include unilateral variations in pay, changes in job content and status, bullying, discriminatory behaviour and conduct by an employer likely to undermine mutual trust and confidence between both parties.

Acting for both employees and employers has given us a greater insight plus the ability to see both sides of the constructive dismissal equation. Extensive experience in this area also enables us to view each case more objectively which helps us to more effectively resolve these complex claims.

If as an employee you wish to terminate your employment and pursue a claim for constructive unfair dismissal it is important that you do not delay. Otherwise you may be deemed to have acquiesced in your employer’s conduct such that you may be unsuccessful in a claim.
