If my job responsibilities drastically changed during the COVID-19 pandemic, but I don't have my initial job posting that outlined what my responsibilities were pre-COVID, can a case be created with minor chance of success? Or, as there is no evidence of my responsibilities before the pandemic, will this revert to a he said/she said case.

Thank you for your question.

A change in responsibilities can be grounds for constructive dismissal, depending on the circumstances.

There would already be a significant issue as to whether you "condoned" the changes if these have already been put in place for a long time, which is why it is important for you to act quickly if you wish to take legal action (there is also a limitation period of two years from the date your cause of action arose).

However, before you take any action, I would strongly recommend that you contact us for a consultation at the number below, so we can determine for you what your options are.
