What is constructive dismissal?

Being fired is never a pleasant experience, but it can be even worse if it happens for an unjust reason or for no reason at all. It is something that countless employees in Missouri go through every year and many are left desperately searching for new jobs, unaware that their dismissal might have been illegal and that they may be entitled to compensation.

In some cases, however, employees are not fired, but rather are forced out of their job by intolerable working conditions. If this has happened to you, you might be worried that it has ruined your chance of seeking compensation. However, being deliberately driven out of your job is known as constructive dismissal and you may still be able to make a claim.

As this article on wrongful termination explains, to show that you have been the victim of constructive dismissal, you may need to prove certain facts. These could include showing that conditions were bad enough to warrant resignation and that your employer knew of this. Equally, you may be able to show that it was your employer's intention to force you to leave. However, the requirements vary from state to state, so it is important to find out what evidence you may need to support your case.

If you feel that you have been forced out of your job or you have experienced hostile or unfair treatment at work, you may be wondering where to turn and what to do. Fortunately, you are not alone and there is help available. An attorney may be able to help you build your case and file a claim against those who have mistreated you. With this guidance, you can pursue the remuneration you deserve and may even be able to regain your job.
