Constructive Dismissal Compensation Claims Bristol Have you been subjected to inappropriate conduct at work and think that you may have a case for constructive dismissal compensation claims to be made against your employer in Bristol?
Constructive dismissal can occur in a number of ways and it is important that you are able to recognise the problem in order to try to find a solution. Broadly speaking constructive dismissal means that you are no longer able to stay in your employment due to the conduct of your employer. This can manifest itself in a number of ways for example;
? Unpaid wages – your employer has a responsibility to pay you. If this does not happen either in full or part then it is possible that your employer is in breach of your contract.
? Discrimination ? if you have been subjected to discrimination or harassment from any colleagues or superiors and your employer has failed to act regarding this.
? Change of work conditions ? Your employer does not have the right to demand that you must change conditions that have been agreed in your contract without prior notice or agreement eg working hours/shifts.

In cases such as these you need to be aware that there are certain criteria that must be met in order for your case to be eligible to be submitted. Part of the criteria is time constraints. Your claim needs to have been submitted within three months of your last day of employment in order for it to be valid. Additionally you usually need to have been employed for at least 1 year if you were employed before 6th April 2012 and have at least 2 years service if you were employed after 6th April 2012.
If you can solve an issue within the work place without having to leave your employment or needing to take legal action then this can often be beneficial. This could include speaking to your employer and making sure they are aware of the problems you are facing.
