Constructive discharge is a term used to describe a certain set of circumstances presented to an employee in his or her workplace. It is what occurs when an employer or representative of an employer makes decisions and performs actions that make the workplace an abusive or otherwise unbearable location. In such an environment, the employee may feel that he or she can no longer be productive in the constant presence of this individual, thereby presenting him or her with two options. The employee could choose to accept the situation and either make complaints or hope for some kind of improvement, or he or she could simply decide that the job is not worth the trouble and resign.
