Sometimes, an employer decides to make major changes to an employee’s job, without approval. This usually includes a significant pay cut, demotion, reduced work hours/job responsibilities, or relocation. If that happens, an employee may have a claim for constructive dismissal.
However, under the law, not every job change will amount to a constructive dismissal. This often makes pursuing a constructive dismissal case difficult. Therefore, it is very important for employees to get advice from an employment lawyer if they experience significant changes to their job.
