In Canada, the law allows an employee or executive to sue for “constructive dismissal.” Constructive dismissal occurs when the employee has not been formally terminated, but their employment relationship or contract of employment has been altered or amended without their consent. The alteration or change in the employment relationship must be a material change and not of an insignificant or minor nature.
In this case, an employee must prove that the change was material or that the change(s) to the employment relationship was such that it establishes that the Employer had repudiated or served notice that it is no longer honouring the underlying employment contract.
If an employee can prove that they were constructively dismissed, then the next step is determining how much notice and compensation/damages the employee is entitled to receive.
