An employment tribunal has found that a business owner who told an employee a few "home truths" about her behaviour in a private meeting did not commit a fundamental breach of contract that entitled her to resign and claim constructive dismissal. The tribunal stressed that it will be an unusual case where an employer's reasonable conduct such as giving an employee a private, albeit blunt, warning about her conduct will be the "final straw" resulting in a constructive dismissal.
