Did Workplace Harassment Force You To Quit?
Constructive termination or discharge cases are typically based on hostile work environment claims. Legally, a situation may be a hostile work environment if the harassment and/or discrimination is based on a protected class such as religion, race, age, ethnicity, disability, sex, gender or sexual orientation.
If your employer allowed an egregious level of harassment or failed to address workplace discrimination, the court may consider it a termination instead of a voluntary resignation.
In constructive termination cases, the hostile work environment or discrimination may include issues such as:
- Verbal harassment;
- Physical harassment;
- Demotion; and
- Unwarranted disciplinary actions.
If you can prove that your work environment was so bad that you felt that resigning was your only option, you may be awarded damages, including back pay. Because these are complex cases, we recommend that you discuss your case with a lawyer as soon as possible.
