It is a fundamental implied term and condition of virtually all traditional employment relationships that the employer will maintain a workplace suitable for the performance of the employees’ duties. The employer is required to provide an environment that is safe and enables the employee to satisfactorily perform her duties. The failure to provide such an environment can amount to a constructive dismissal of an employee.
