A common issue that arises is the right of employees to make a ‘constructive dismissal’ claim if they are unhappy with their employer’s behaviour or work environment. You must firstly determine whether an employee has indeed been let go by your employer. If this is the case, you must then seek legal advice from an Employment solicitor. The law governing UK Employment law is very complex and it is advisable to retain the help of a specialist in the relevant area. They will help you understand exactly what the Employment law in the UK requires employers to do and what measures they must take in order to prevent any future problems such as this one. If you have a potential Constructive Dismissal Claim you should look to Employment Law Friend for assistance.
There is another possible scenario that may give rise to a constructive dismissal claim. If you accept a settlement deal, you may not be able to make a successful, constructive dismissal claim against your employer. This is because, even if you resign at the agreed time, there must have been a serious incident that caused you to resign. In most cases, this serious incident must have been brought to the attention of your employer prior to you taking your final leave period. In this case, it is likely that you will lose your right to lodge a claim at the employment tribunal as, if the employer was aware of your intention to resign well in advance of your going for a voluntary exit, they would have taken steps to prevent any complaints about your work being made.
You should also bear in mind that, even if you have been let go by your employer, you may still be entitled to compensation for injuries suffered while at work. If, for example, you were working in a manufacturing plant and your employer failed to provide adequate safety gear for your safety, you could make a constructive dismissal claim. The reason why many employees find this type of claim difficult to win is because many employers try to avoid making their employees aware of the possibility of such a claim and they are equally unaware of the consequences of failing to provide safety equipment. However, if you do feel that you have fallen victim to employer negligence, the advice given below will help you receive the compensation that you deserve.
