In English employment law we have this thing called "constructive dismissal." It applies when an employer forces an employee out of his job using any form of unfair pressure and completely ignoring the customary dismissal process. It is illegal.
I am hereby inventing the ecclesiastical equivalent and claim intellectual property rights to it.
CONSTRUCTIVE DEFROCKING: When a bishop forces a priest, deacon or junior bishop out of his or her employment and making it impossible for that clergyperson to get a job elsewhere in the church, without even going through the pantomime of the self-invented, corrupt and very much wanting dismissal procedures of the church. It should be illegal but, as the church is exempt from having to abide by even the most uncontroversial and universally agreed upon moral standards of the secular workplace they get away with it and the offending bishops happily carry on with their own working lives until they reach the age when they can retire and live off their episcopally inflated pensions.
Thank God for hell. To be honest, I sometimes think its existence is the only thing that stops me from committing murder.
