Constructive Unfair Dismissal
Constructive Unfair Dismissal is an area of law we see all to often. Based in Solihull, Birmingham Aeris Employment Law offers industry leading advice on issues around this.
What constitutes Unfair Dismissal?
Essentially, constructive unfair dismissal is where your employer acts so badly that it ‘breaks’ your contract of employment (known as a fundamental breach) and you have no option other than to ultimately resign in response to it.
There are many examples but it could be changing your working hours, not paying you your salary or reducing your salary, demoting you for no reason, forcing you to accept unreasonable changes to how you work, trying to change your role, allowing other people to bully or harass you.
Your employer’s breach of contract may be one serious incident or a series of incidents. You can try sort any issues out by speaking to your employer to resolve the dispute but if this fails, you may either have to raise a grievance or resign and claim constructive unfair dismissal.
This is not easy however and you have to make sure you do not delay unreasonably. You also have to have two years’ service to make such a claim. We strongly advise that you speak to us here at Aeris Employment Law based in Solihull, Birmingham – we will be able to guide you to see whether you have a possible case and offer you the professional advice and support that you need.
