Work related stress and mental illness is now responsible, nationally, for more than half of absenteeism.

One impact of the coronavirus pandemic has been an increased incidence of mental health issues for some employees as a result of sustained high levels of work, a significant setback or perceived unfair treatment.

Against this backdrop, stress related litigation is bound to increase. 

This webinar will address:

  • How to create a healthy workplace culture;
  • What organisations can do to minimise the risk of stress turning into psychiatric illness
  • the latest guidance on dealing with stressed employees, to minimise the risk of stress turning into psychiatric illness;  
  • the role of the manager and responsibilities of employees;
  • The business case: interventions, support and guidance:  what organisations can do
  • the building blocks of a civil stress claim: foreseeability, duty of care and causation
  • what should employment lawyers take into consideration when advising a client whether to pursue a stress related personal injury claim?
  • in which forum (High Court, Employment Tribunal or both) should a stress claim be pursued?
  • the issues that may arise when dealing with a personal injury claim in the Employment Tribunal.
