Stress at Work

In these difficult economic times, you may well feel that you cannot "rock the boat" at work or be seen to complain about your working conditions. However that does not mean that you do not have a claim against your employer if they are exposing you to stress in the workplace which has caused you to become ill or sustain injury.

For example, if you are asked to take on a new role, without being given adequate support in terms of training or from work colleagues and left in that position for a long period of time, it is likely that you will experience stress as a result. Similarly if your workload is greatly increased without any additional support being provided to you in terms of equipment or work colleagues to share the load you will experience stress.

As part of their duty to take reasonable care that you are safe while working for them, your employers should ensure that your stress in the workplace is kept to a minimum and that they have good systems for monitoring and reducing workplace stress.

In order to claim for workplace stress you have to have suffered an injury or illness such as, for example, suffering a nervous breakdown. Also, the stress which has caused the illness or injury should only come from your workplace and not, for example, from financial worries or relationship breakdown.

It may well be that you are able to make a claim for stress in the workplace but did not realise that you could.

Our highly experienced solicitors have over 10 years of experience in dealing with such claims.

If you think you may have a claim that we can help you with, please contact us on 0116 2999 199 or via this website and let our friendly, professional staff discuss your claim with you.
