Anyone know anything about constructive dismissal?
The short version of the story is that I moved out of London 2 years ago. My contract at the time stated that I must live within 35 miles of the office, but the company offered to pay hotels and travel costs for me to work alternate weeks in London; the other weeks I would work from home.
This went on for exactly a year before they got round to giving me an amendment to contract, which was to last for a year. The amendment basically formalised the situation I was already in, and nothing changed.
I've now been told that the amendment will not be renewed, so I'm left with the options of either moving back down to London (which my boss knew I wouldn't agree to) or handing in my notice as I would have to be in the office every week at my own expense (which I can't afford, and I wouldn't agree to the disruption to my home life).
Some people have suggested that this could amount to constructive dismissal, but the 1-year amendment to contract seems to confuse the issue, despite the implied change of terms where I didn't have anything in writing for a year.
Anyone got any useful suggestions?
