Constructive dismissal occurs when the following two elements are present:
· Serious breach of contract by the employer; and
· An acceptance of that breach by the employee, who in turn treats the contract of employment as at an end. The employee must act in response to the breach and must not delay any action too long.
So you need to be able to identify what the serious breach here is. According to what I understand, you believe that this is the move from the senior school to the junior school. The issue here is that your contract allows for such a move because it specifically states that they can move you between locations on either a temporary r permanent basis. This is exactly what has happened here – you have been moved to another location on a permanent basis and this is not really a breach of contract because it is specifically allowed under your contract.
So a successful constructive dismissal claim may be unlikely but that does not stop you from trying to negotiate with the employer and even using this potential claim as leverage in these negotiations. There are also other options you have for negotiating with them using a third party which are completely free and can result in a successful outcome for you, even if you do not have to make a formal claim.
This is your basic legal position. I have more detailed advice for you in terms of the negotiating options you have, which I wish to discuss so please take a second to leave a positive rating for the service so far (by selecting 3, 4 or 5 stars) and I can continue with that and answer any further questions you may have. Don’t worry, there is no extra cost and leaving a rating will not close the question and we can continue this discussion. Thank you
