In the employment law context, you've probably heard of constructive discharge as a type of adverse employment action. A constructive discharge occurs when an employer's actions make an employee's working conditions so unpleasant and difficult that a reasonable person in the employee's shoes would feel compelled to resign from his or her job. A recent decision from the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania has found that an adverse employment action can also occur in the form a "constructive demotion" - something not yet explicitly held to be an adverse employment action in the Third Circuit.
