Have you been made ill by stress in the workplace?
You may be able to start a compensation claim in Rushyford if you have been made ill by stress in the workplace. Stress can occur for all sorts of reasons in the workplace, including being overworked or forced to meet tight deadlines. Under health and safety legislation, your employer has a duty of care to ensure you don’t become too stressed at work and if they are not taking measures to support you and you become ill as a result, you can make a compensation claim. Stress can lead to other illnesses and may cause workers to be off sick more often than what is deemed as acceptable. There are measures you can take to keep stress levels to a minimum.
You should be able to take regular breaks
If you never leave your desk and are constantly working, even whilst you are eating your lunch, you are bound to feel stressed. No matter how busy you are, you should always take regular breaks. It may just be a five minute coffee break in the canteen or a quick trip to the shop at lunchtime, but any breaks will help to reduce stress levels.
Employers have responsibilities
If you are feeling stressed in the workplace, there are measures you can take to help reduce them but it is also the responsibility of your employer to make sure they are not putting you under pressure. If you feel stressed or over worked, you should speak to them in the first instance. If they do not take action to support you and it causes you to become ill, you can make a compensation claim.
