Constructive Dismissal – Your Happiness at Work and Claiming Constructive Dismissal

Being happy at work is so important for our mental health. Work is where most of us spend a good deal of our time, so it shouldn’t be a place where you feel that you are treated unfairly, persecuted or harassed.

Sadly, there are many people who are suffering in this way at work. When you feel like this at work, it can make life really hard, and for many people resigning is something that they have to do for their own health.

When you resign for these reasons, then you can make a constructive dismissal claim. This means that your employer has broken their terms of your employment contract. When you do this, it is important that you have put the reasons for leaving the role in your resignation letter.
