CONSTRUCTIVE TERMINATION - ".a little-known legal concept called constructive termination. In constructive termination an employee quits her job because her working conditions have become unbearable. The resignation is voluntary. A court, however, might view such a resignation as involuntary because by not repairing the working situation, the employer has, in effect, forced the employee to leave."
