Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
How long did you work there for and when did you leave?
Thank you and no, sorry, I only received the last reply. If you left in the heat of the moment, then you will have the right to change your mind. This can only happen a day or two after the incident so if you are going to do it then you should do so today at the latest. The argument is that you did not really mean to resign but did so in the heat of the moment and after being faced with the situation in question.
You may, however, not wish to return and for the resignation to stand. In that case, now that you have left, your only option is t consider pursuing the employer for constructive dismissal, for being forced to leave as a result of their actions. You have 3 months to take this further now and the good news is that it is a free claim so the risks are relatively low.
Please take a quick second to leave a positive rating for the service so far by selecting 3, 4 or 5 stars above. I can continue answering follow up questions and in particular can also discuss the steps you need to follow if you are to take this further. There is no extra cost for this - leaving your rating now will not close the question and means we can still continue this discussion. Thank you
Thank you. If you decide to leave then you would be resigning and claiming constructive dismissal instead (unfair dismissal is when you are dismissed).
This is not always an easy claim and you must be able to show that there was a serious breach of contract by the employer which resulted in you not being able to carry on working there. It would be a stronger case if this was an ongoing issue which you have talked to them about and asked that it does not happen, rather than a one off incident which just happened to get out of hand
Many thanks and all the best
