Constructive Dismissal Cannot Be ‘Cured`

04 March 2010 #Employment

Following the Court of Appeal decision in Buckland v Bournemouth University, it was held that employers could not ‘cure` a fundamental breach of contract by taking subsequent steps to rectify it.  

The ‘range of reasonable responses` test is therefore not the correct test in establishing whether an employer had committed a fundamental breach of contract entitling an employee to claim constructive dismissal.  The Court of Appeal held that an objective test should be used.
