Many people wrongly assume that legal options are only available if an employee has been the victim of wrongful employment termination. In reality, you may have a legal channel to make a claim even if you resign from a position. This is what’s known in the legal system as a constructive dismissal claim. Employers sometimes take actions that leave employees with no choice other than to resign. Here are some common scenarios that may warrant constructive dismissal claims:
The law leaves quite some “wiggle room” for scenarios that qualify for constructive dismissal claims. Generally, claims can be considered valid when they are directed toward business owners, managers, or other leaders. However, it is possible for an employer to be liable for the actions of its employees if an employer fails to take appropriate actions. In addition, the law will look at both the severity and frequency of violations. For example, a series of “small” incidents that took place over a span of time may be seen as having a cumulative effect that is strong enough to form the basis of a valid claim.
