Constructive dismissal/constructively dismissed

If you are forced to resign because of the actions of your employer, you may have been constructively dismissed. The legal effect of a constructive dismissal is that you can make a dismissal-based claim such as an unfair dismissal or unlawful termination claim, even if you resigned from employment, or were not expressly told that you were dismissed.
