Wrongful and Constructive Dismissal

A wrongful dismissal occurs when an employee’s contract of employment is terminated by an employer in circumstances that violates the employment contract and gives rise to an employee’s right to reasonable notice of termination or pay in lieu and the employer fails to meet this obligation. A constructive dismissal involves unilateral actions by the employer that result in a fundamental change to the employment contract that permits an employee to treat the employment relationship as at an end.
