3. Don't wait too long to decide what to do

After you get legal advice, you need to decide what to do. And it's important not to wait too long to decide whether to leave the job or continue to work.

This is because if you continue to work, your employer may say that you have agreed to the changes. If you leave the job later, you might not be able to say that you were forced out of your job.

But if your employer is doing things like abusing you or humiliating you, then even if you stay you might have a right to claim constructive dismissal.

And you might be able to keep working and still have the right to say you were fired if you tell your employer that you object to the situation and may take legal action. But this is risky and might not work. Don't try this without getting legal help.
