Just got back a favourable result from the Employment Appeals Tribunal in a case where we acted for the claimant where he was claiming he was constructively dismissed i.e. he was left with no option but to resign.
In this type of case the onus is on the Employee to prove that he was forced to leave the company. These cases can be difficult to win but not impossible where professional advice is taken. For instance, you would be ill advised to quit your post without exhausting the companys’ internal remedies for dealing with grievances. Look at the handbook! Afford the company a chance to right the wrong before pressing the nuclear button. It can make all the difference when you are seeking redress.
