Constructive dismissal part 2: everything has its limits

Constructive dismissal, while still a source of concern for employers, is likely less of a threat than it is sometimes thought of. Employees placed in potential constructive dismissal suits must be very careful, or else they may find they have very limited recovery.

In fact it appears to have tried to push the concept farther than it can reasonably bear.
