There is a reason a constructive dismissal is often referred to as a "forced resignation." While a finding of constructive dismissal does not require a formal termination, a company that unilaterally alters the contract of employment, or makes working conditions so intolerable, could be on the hook to provide a severance package the same way it would be if the employee had been terminated.
As many employers often do not intend to set themselves up for a possible constructive dismissal claim, with a little background knowledge, it may be possible for such claims to be avoided altogether.
The purpose of this seminar is to explain the circumstances where constructive dismissal may be found, how one might avoid a finding of constructive dismissal in the future, and other legal considerations surrounding this type of dismissal.
