Fachtna O Driscoll Solicitors Cork represented an employee in a constructive dismissal appeal. Although both are technical legal terms, constructive dismissal can be viewed as a form of unfair dismissal that occurs when the employee terminates his or her contract of employment, with or without prior notice, due to the behaviour of the employer. The conduct of the employer should have been such that it would have been reasonable for the employee to leave without giving prior notice.
Our client, who was forced to sign a “resignation letter” by her employer, asked for our help in appealing a previous decision which went against her. Our employment law solicitors successfully negotiated a settlement on her behalf for her constructive dismissal claim prior to the appeal being heard.
