If an employee chooses to make a claim for constructive dismissal against your business, it is important to seek specialist legal support from constructive dismissal solicitors at Linder Myers.
Our legal team has extensive experience in this area, which allows us to view each case from a broader perspective to effectively resolve these complex claims.
Breaches of contract
Constructive dismissal claims can be pursued if an employee terminates their employment as a result of a fundamental violation of their contract. The incident is treated as an actual dismissal by the employer and the worker can claim compensation if they deem that their behaviour or action was unfair or wrongful.
There are a number of serious breaches which cause a worker to leave their position, including:
- Unilateral variations in pay
- Changes in job content and status
- Workplace discrimination
- Conduct by an employer likely to undermine mutual trust and confidence
Protecting your interests
While an employee can make a constructive dismissal claim against your business if they believe that they have been subject to a violation of contract, they must also be able to prove that they were subject to damaging behaviour without any justified reason or cause.
Our dedicated employment law team has successfully defended numerous claims of constructive unfair dismissal on behalf of employers. With this extensive experience in the field, we can provide you with expert legal guidance if you are faced with the threat of a legal procedure.
The constructive dismissal solicitors are able to offer advice on the strengths of any defences you may have and represent you in negotiations with your employee. While some claims can be settled outside of court, we also provide you with representation should you need to attend an Employment Tribunal proceeding.
