Differences between Constructive and Unfair Dismissal
A dismissal is when your employer ends your employment, with or without notice, either by not renewing your contract, or through their conduct.
Constructive dismissal is when you have been forced to resign with immediate effect as a result of a serious breach of contract by your employer.
To claim constructive dismissal you need to be able to prove that your employer made a serious breach of your contract. As a result of which you resigned with immediate effect.
An unfair dismissal is when you have been dismissed by your employer for reasons other than your:
A statutory duty or restriction that prohibited your employment from being continued
Some other substantial reason.
If you started your new employment after 6 April 2012, then you need to have been employed by your new employer for two years before you can claim unfair dismissal.
If you started before 6 April 2012, then you need to have been employed by your employer for only one year before you can claim unfair dismissal.
Not all dismissals are unfair. However, your employer has to prove to the Employment Tribunal that your dismissal was fair and within reason.

Can I Get any Interim Compensation for Dismissal?
Every case is different. That is why it’s important to talk to us as soon as possible, so we can give you the employment law advice you need.
Time is of essence, by law, any employee thinking of making a claim at the Employment Tribunal must first notify ACAS with details of the claim. ACAS will then attempt a conciliation between you and your employer. If the conciliation fails, then the claim can progress to the Employment Tribunal.
Your claim for constructive dismissal is time-limited and there are statutory regulations regarding your compensation award, so it is best to get advice from expert Employment Lawyers about your constructive dismissal as early in the process as possible.
Failure from your employer to comply with ACAS’s Code of Practice on disciplinary and grievance procedures can increase your compensation by up to 25%, if you succeed in your claim for constructive dismissal. If the employee is responsible for the failure then an Employment Tribunal may reduce compensation by up to 25%.
