Constructive or Wrongful Dismissal
Constructive dismissal is when an employee chooses to resign due to fundamental and serious alteration(s) to the terms of employment without the employee’s consent. Examples of constructive dismissal can include a reduction in pay, demotion or status. Wrongful dismissal claims may also arise when the employer has not provided adequate reasonable notice.
Each case is specific based on the facts, and it always advisable to speak to a legal expert such as Enable Legal Services when proceeding with terminations or changing terms of employment.
