Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hi, this is not constructive dismissal, many people get confused with redundancy and think that the jobs actually have to disappear for this to apply but that is not the case. Redundancy also includes the situation where the employer has a reduced requirement for employees to do jobs of a particular kind and this could mean that they no longer need as many employees doing this particular job as it currently stands and are exporting them abroad. The fact that you cannot commute to the place where the new positions are being moved to would not allow you to claim constructive dismissal. You can of course argue that the new jobs are not a suitable alternative for you to do, but in the circumstances you can claim for redundancy instead and it is likely that if you cannot find anything else within the company that is considered suitable you will simply have to opt for redundancy.
