Ok that's fine
Hi there, so as mentioned there are circumstances when an employee may be entitled to leave with immediate effect and without honouring their notice period. This occurs when an employer has committed a serious breach of contract first. The whole contract, including the notice periods, then becomes immediately void and the employee would be treated as being 'constructively dismissed'. So if there are reasons to believe the employer has acted in breach of contract, whether a breach of an express contractual term, or other breaches such as bullying, exposing the employee to unreasonable stress, discriminating against them, etc this reason can be relied on in order to leave with immediate effect. In your resignation letter you would say that you are considering yourself as having been constructively dismissed, list the reasons why and state that you are leaving with immediate effect. If you decide to take it further to ACAS, then you can start the conciliation service here: You need to do this within 3 months of leaving. Best of luck
