    Compensation for employer-induced stress


    Most of us would agree that work can be stressful at times. However there is a difference between going through the odd stressful situation and feeling as though you are constantly stressed. In the case of the latter you need to consider whether you are naturally a person who finds things stressful, or whether your employer has a role to play in the situation. For example if they have little to no regard for their employees and constantly assign work for which little to no training is provided, things are very different. This is just one example – there are many other instances where employees may potentially be suffering from employer-induced stress whereby their concerns are not heeded or listened to.

    Thankfully occasions like this do not crop up very often and there is little to suggest anyone would be at risk of stress owing to the actions – or indeed inaction – exhibited by their employer. However there is a slim chance that some unscrupulous employers may potentially cause such problems to occur. It is this type of situation where one or more employees may become stressed and may end up suffering prolonged stress as a result.

    How severe can stress be?

    Stress can be anything from mild to very severe indeed. It can lead to other health problems over time, such as anxiety and depression for example. It can also lead to people feeling and becoming physically ill in several different ways. While we all deal with stress differently and we each have a different threshold with regard to how much stress we can live with, prolonged stress won’t do anyone any good. If an employer forces their workers to put up with bad conditions, this could potentially lead to problems in some cases.
