What is Constructive Discharge? | Meaning & Definition | Akrivia HCM

Constructive discharge is a form of wrongful termination in which an employer’s behavior forces an employee to leave the company. Constructive discharge, constructive dismissal, and constructive termination describe the same thing: an employee is forced to leave their job because of the behavior or words of the employer. They’re called “constructive” because they’re not voluntary. The term “constructive” means “having the appearance of being something, but not being that thing.”
