An employee must be able to demonstrate their employer has committed a serious breach of contract, ‘repudiatory breach’, of an express or implied term and not purely behaved unreasonably.

Examples of repudiatory breach include unilateral change in pay/other contractual terms, bullying and harassment, discrimination. The breach may consist of a one off act or a series of events culminating in a ‘last straw’.

We advise you contact us as early as possible as delays in contacting an employment solicitor can affect your claim.

Generally, to claim constructive dismissal, you need to have been employed by your employer for at least two years. There are certain exceptions to this rule, however, where a claim is possible for those who have worked for their employer for less than the required amount of time.

It is advisable to contact us before you resign, as an employment solicitor we have helped many clients achieve a favorable outcome. Constructive dismissal is a complex area of law that is far from straightforward. It is very difficult to prove so make sure you gather as much evidence as possible before making a claim.
