The essential ingredient in a Constructive Dismissal matter is where there has been a breakdown in trust and confidence between the Employer and the Employee which seriously damages that relationship.
Constructive Dismissal comes about when the Employer terminates the contract due to the Employee committing a serious breach of the contract, or indicating that they do not intend to be bound by the contract.
There may sometimes be a history of events where the cumulative effective has been to lead to a breakdown in relations, or there may be one perceived serious incident which leads an Employee to terminate the contract and to go on to claim Constructive Dismissal.
Any Employee with one year’s continuous service is protected by the Employment Rights Act 1996 against Unfair Dismissal. Where an Employee is dismissed, the Employer must not only follow a fair procedure, but the reason for the dismissal must be fair too.
