  • In two recent decisions, the Superior Court ruled that employees who do not contest changes to their working conditions in a timely manner cannot claim that they are victims of constructive dismissal. The Court thus recognized that if substantial changes are made to the essential terms of a contract of employment and the employee concerned disagrees with them, the employee must notify the employer of his or her objections or resign within a reasonable time.
