Temporary Layoffs and Constructive Dismissal Liability Risks

On one hand, it is clear that temporary layoffs are, in many cases, a constructive dismissal that exposes the employer to potential liability. On the other hand, many people have asserted that this long-standing legal principle should not be applied to the current set of circumstances. More specifically, they assert that it is simply not appropriate to put businesses in the position where they either have to maintain operating costs that they cannot possibly afford or risk even greater liability through a constructive dismissal claim.

Ending Telecommute Arrangements Without Committing Constructive Dismissal

Many employers regarded telecommuting during the pandemic as a temporary expedient that would end when the public health situation stabilized. But ending these arrangements is proving highly problematic. Having gotten used to working from home, telecommuters don’t want to return to the office. And they may be prepared to quit if you try to make them come back. If they do, they might sue their employers for constructive dismissal. Do they have a case?

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Our third installment of our Summer of Webinars series features the hot topic – How Do You Know If It Is Constructive Dismissal? Presented by Teri Treiber & Tessa Green, this educational webinar gives an overview of when constructive dismissal arises, what remedies are available to an employee who has been constructively dismissed, and what an employer can do to reduce liability in these situations.

Constructive dismissal occurs where the employer demonstrates an intention to no longer be bound to the employment contract. Since the employee has not been formally dismissed by the employer, the employer’s act is referred to as “constructive dismissal”. This most commonly happens when an employer unilaterally reduces an employee’s pay or benefits or reassigns work duties to such an extent that the essential nature of the employee’s position is altered.

During this recorded webinar, examples of specific employer behavior that may amount to constructive dismissal will be highlighted.
