Sometimes stress-related illness is not taken seriously. You mention you’re suffering from stress at work and people look at you doubtfully. Many of us don’t think that stress is a ‘real’ condition. But if you’re stressed out at work to the point that it’s making you ill, did you ever stop to think that you could claim personal injury compensation? Often it is pressure from managers and poor management that leads to stress at work, and companies should be doing all they can to protect their employees from common causes of stress-related illness. If this isn’t happening at your workplace, you could make a personal injury claim.
How have you been affected?
Common causes of stress-related illness at work can include things such as:
- Unrealistic deadlines or expectations from senior management
- Being made to work longer hours than your colleagues
- Forced to work longer shifts than your contract states
- Being given little or no training to do your job properly
- Having your job responsibilities change and not being given enough support
- Long working hours without sufficient rest breaks
- Unsupportive colleagues
- Lack of staff putting extra pressure and workload on you
