Constructive Dismissal

Constructive Dismissal

Has your employer suddenly changed your job responsibilities? Perhaps you’ve been told the company is restructuring, and now you are doing what you never signed up for, at a lower pay rate. Maybe you’re being told to move to another location because the office is relocating, and you don’t want to move.

If you feel that your company is forcing changes you do not want, you may feel that you’re being pressured out of the company. This is an area of law called constructive dismissal. You likely have options.

By assessing your unique situation, we can help you understand whether you are required to follow the company’s changes, and if not, how exactly you may challenge your employer. We often hear from employees working in both small and large companies that they’ve been caught off-guard by changes to their job duties. If you believe these changes are unreasonable and will substantially affect your situation, we may be able to help. 604-370-3050.
