Injury Claim in Dunfermline


What if working too many hours is making you ill and how to make an injury claim against your employer

Although it might just seem like an inconvenience or frustration to have to work more hours than you were originally contracted to do, or to feel as though work is taking over your life and leaving you without very much free time or time to enjoy with friends and family, it can actually be very dangerous for you to work too much. Working all the time can actually make you ill, as your body doesn’t have any time to relax, you may not have enough time for food and sleep, which can make you very ill as well. If you do feel that you are becoming ill from working too much, here are some of the things you can do.

  • Take a break. There is no shame in taking a few days off when you feel that work is really getting on top of you and that you are struggling to cope. If you are heading towards a major deadline, then take a few days off after the deadline, so that you have something to work towards, and some time to de-stress afterwards.
  • Don’t do overtime. If your employer is saying that everyone needs to work overtime to get to a deadline, check your contract. You may legally be able to say no without worrying about losing your job because of it. Alternatively, find out if you can share overtime hours with someone else.
  • Find a new job. Although it is illegal to overwork employees, many companies are getting away with just this as people are afraid of losing their jobs if they don’t do the work. Head this off by starting to look for a new job sooner rather than later, so that you can leave when things get too much.
  • Take a holiday. Although you might want to save your holiday for the summer or special occasions, if you really need the break then it is best for your health to take your holiday as soon as possible.
