Constructive Dismissal

Employers who “constructively dismiss” you may be responsible to pay your wages and other entitlements for a period of “reasonable notice”.

Generally, constructive dismissal takes place where an employer demonstrates that it no longer intends to be bound by an employment contract. Some example of conduct giving rise to a constructive dismissal may include:

  • temporary lay-off (including lay-off because of COVID-19);
  • workplace harassment;
  • sexual harassment;
  • demotion; or
  • reduction in hours or pay.

if you have experienced one or more of the above recently, you should speak with an experienced Worker’s Rights Lawyer to discuss your options, which may include quitting and claiming constructive dismissal.
