Workplace Stress Compensation

Many people feel that taking legal action against their employer is extremely daunting. However, it doesn’t need to be. If your employer has failed to address work place pressures and stresses and this results in you becoming unwell, then they may be liable.

Your Employer’s Duty Of Care 

Your employer has a duty of care over you and your colleagues. If you are struggling to maintain good mental health at work, then it is their responsibility first off to try to accommodate this. They could be making the following workplace adjustments:

  • Reducing your working hours
  • Providing you with extra support or supervision
  • Reallocating some of your work
  • Providing you with confidential counselling

If your employer fails to manage your stress at work, then you could be eligible to make a claim against them. If you have made your deteriorating mental health clear to your employer, they should have considered the following actions:

  • Carry out a stress audit — this should ask employees to list their concerns.
  • Create a stress policy — this should give employees guidance on how to cope with their stress at work, and give guidance on how to raise concerns within the workplace.
  • Use return to work interviews — when employees have been absent, this provides them with one-on-one time with management to voice issues.
  • Train management to recognise situations that could cause stress at work, recognise employees with poor mental health and how to manage employees’ stress levels.
