Constructive dismissal occurs when an employee resigns from their job due to a fundamental breach of their employment contract by the employer. This breach might involve changes in job responsibilities, working conditions, or compensation that make the job untenable or create a hostile work environment. HR professionals need to be aware of constructive dismissal issues to ensure that employment contracts are upheld and to prevent potential legal disputes. It is crucial to address employee concerns, investigate claims, and attempt to resolve issues amicably, as failing to do so can lead to legal consequences and damage the organization’s reputation. HR’s role is to navigate such situations delicately, balancing the interests of both employees and the organization to find equitable solutions.
