Constructive Dismissal Claim

If you want to make a constructive dismissal claim, call us on 0203 909 8399 to speak with our employment law solicitors.

If your employer has done something that seriously breaches your contract, you might be able to resign and make a claim to an employment tribunal. This is called constructive dismissal.  If you take your claim to an employment tribunal without help and advice, you’re likely to lose.

Examples of constructive dismissal

You might be able to make a claim for constructive dismissal if you resigned because of your employer:

  • allowed people to bully or harass you at work
  • made unreasonable changes to how you work, for example by forcing you to work longer hours
  • demoted you
  • refused to pay you
  • didn’t make sure your working environment was safe
  • took away benefits your contract says you get, like your company car
  • didn’t give you the support you needed to do your job
