The employee – a College Dean – initiated a constructive dismissal case after she refused to be transferred from her position as Dean of the College of Physical Therapy (which was closed due to low enrollment) to having a teaching load in the College of Nursing. The employer arrived at this management decision considering that the employee had signed a Scholarship Contract requiring her to serve at least 10 years in exchange for the grant. When the College of Physical Therapy was abolished, the employee still had 2 years left to serve.
