Constructive dismissal is when you feel pressured to resign from your job as the only way to resolve a serious issue at work. If you’re in this situation, our constructive dismissal lawyers could help you claim against your employer. We could also help you resolve the issue before it comes to making a claim.

If you’re thinking of making a constructive dismissal claim it’s best to get legal advice as soon as possible. Contact our team on 0207 650 3999 to discuss your situation.

Who Can We Help?

We could help you claim constructive unfair dismissal compensation if your employer:

  • Demotes you for no reason
  • Does not pay you, regularly pays you late or does not pay your full salary
  • Allows other employees to bully, harass or discriminate against you
  • Does not give you a safe place to work or proper safety equipment and procedures
  • Changes your place of work or hours without checking with you
  • Regularly gives you an unmanageable work-load
  • Does not investigate a formal grievance you’ve raised.

To make a claim you’ll need to be classified as an employee and be employed for at least two years at your current job. You’ll also need to claim within three months of your resignation date.

Our solicitors can check if you meet these requirements. We’ll also assess your situation to see if there are other options available to resolve your issue such as through an Early Conciliation. This is where you can reach a settlement agreement with your employer without making a claim.
