Q: When a buyer chooses to continue the seller's employees in their previous jobs but at a substantial reduction in wages and fringe benefits, has the buyer constructively discharged the employees, and what would constitute a constructive discharge/involuntary departure?

A: If a drastic change in wages or working conditions causes a person to believe he or she was being fired or would be unable to continue working for that employer, this could constitute a constructive discharge. The test is usually a matter of state law and the test is often a strict one.
