Constructive Dismissal

Constructive dismissal occurs when you are not directly terminated by your employer, but your employer suddenly or frequently makes substantial changes to your employment agreement to put you in a position to either choose to accept the changers to your employment agreement or to quit.

Significant changes can include, amongst other things, changes to your salary, a demotion, changes to your benefits, and changes to the term of your employment. If you do not accept the significant changes, and you quit your job within a reasonable period of time, then you may be entitled to compensation for constructive dismissal.
