When it comes to constructive dismissal, you must bring the claim within three months from the day you left your job.
To make a claim, you must proceed through the following steps.
1. Deciding whether you have a constructive dismissal claim.
If you feel your employer has left you with no choice but to resign, you may have a claim for constructive dismissal.
2. Identify whether you’re eligible to make a constructive dismissal claim.
When claiming constructive dismissal, you must meet the criteria for the claim. The requirements are as follows:
- You’re an employee who has been employed for at least two years. If you’re not considered an employee or you’ve worked for less than two years, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to make a constructive dismissal claim.
- You’ve claimed within three months from the date you resigned.
3. Get legal advice.
If you’re happy that you’ve fulfilled the criteria of the previous stages, you should seek legal advice. When bringing a constructive dismissal claim, you will need first to arrange an untimed initial consultation. This consultation will include:
- Unlimited time to ask any questions you may have and go through the details of your case.
- An overview of your available options and legal standpoint.
- A precise time and fee estimate for your matter.
