? They did not follow the company’s formal dismissal or disciplinary process.

Other situations where your dismissal is likely to be unfair can include any number of the following reasons:

? If you have been told by your employer that you must be flexible in working hours and this is not stated in your contract.

? If your employer refused to give you working time rights for example the right to take rest breaks.

? They tried to make you aware of your rights to receive Working Tax Credits therefore implying that you should leave your position.

? If they terminate your contract as you need time off work for jury service.

? You are dismissed when applying for maternity paternity or adoption leave.

? Exposed to wrongdoing in the workplace this can also be known as whistleblowing.

We are currently investigating a case on behalf of Mr C from Preston who states that he received a constructive dismissal from his place of work.

Constructive dismissal will branch under the term ?unfair dismissal? and this is where you are forced leave your job against your will because of your employer’s conduct.

The reason you needed to leave your job must be serious to be classed as constructive dismissal and can include any number of the following reasons;

? Your employer did not pay you suddenly or demoted you for no reason.

? They forced you to accept unreasonable changes to how you work for example tell you that you need to work night shifts when your contract states you only need to work during the day.

? If your employer allows fellow employee’s to harass or bully you at your place of work.

You may be entitled to compensation for a constructive dismissal if your employer breaches their contract and this can be for one serious incident or a series of incidents that when put together are considered serious.
