Guiding You Through Constructive Dismissal Claims
Constructive dismissal refers to a situation in which an employer has altered the contract of employment in some fundamental way, without the employee’s consent. Often, there may be changes such as a change in pay, change in working conditions, or change in title, status or duties.
