The article goes on to say that "Ms English 34 sued the Labour peer after resigning from the œ100000-a-year job that was her prize-winning series 6 of the BBC1 show in 2010. She told the East London Tribunal Service last month that she was treated like an ‘overpaid lackey’."

Constructive dismissal occurs when an employee feels forced into resigning from their job against their will due to the conduct of their employer as they have made a fundamental breach in their contract of employment. The breach must have been an extremely serious one. If an organisation can prove that no fundamental breach of employment contract was made on the part or that the employee resigned of their own will then it is unlikely that the claimant’s case will be upheld at an employment tribunal.

As of summer 2013 claimants will have to pay fees to bring claims against employers to employment tribunal and further fees if the case goes to hearing. This was part of a move to encourage alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation conciliation and arbitration. Many employers favour these dispute resolution methods over costly and timely employment tribunal hearings and a welcoming the changes that may reduce the number of employment tribunal claims being made by disgruntled employees.
