Constructive dismissal is when someone has resigned from their job having felt that they had no choice but to do so as a result of the behaviour or treatment by their employer.
An example of constructive dismissal is when an employer has bullied an employee persistently over a period of time. However, constructive dismissal does not have to be due to persistent bad treatment, a single event could be cause for if it was severe enough in nature.

- That the breach was serious, resulting in the employee resigning
