Stress at Work

Thousands of employees are absent from work for occupational stress each year. At its most extreme this can give rise to a personal injury claim, as well as employment claims, against the employer. Can you establish causation? Was the employer on notice? Was injury foreseeable? These are some of the preliminary questions before looking at medical opinions and calculating loss. What are the employee's contractual sick pay benefits? Is there a PHI policy?
