If your employer made significant changes to your role that forced you into quitting your job, you may be able to make a claim for constructive dismissal. Whether you think your (former) boss would’ve been a great candidate for a role in the movie Horrible Bosses
, or you experienced something a little less blatant, you should talk to a lawyer right away. Constructive dismissal doesn’t necessarily mean your boss was outright horrible. It can be a lot more subdued, like a company restructuring that significantly impacts your work responsibilities or wage.
In terms of employment law
, constructive dismissal is basically a fancy way of saying that your employer made such drastic changes to your role, terms of employment, or work environment that you were forced to leave your position.
