Stress – a condition that affects many people…
Stress is apparent in everyday life; it cannot be avoided and to a certain extent, can be the one thing that keeps us motivated to do better. It keeps is on ‘our toes’, propelling us forward to greater things.
Positive stress can be a good thing but, there are times when stress is bad. This is when small things become big issues; it can affect how we eat and sleep. When stress is connected to our work place and environment, it can make going in to work on a daily basis a very difficult thing to do.
Unfettered stress piling on us causes us to be depleted in our mood, can affect our appetite and our relationships with the nearest and dearest around us.
Our expert injury solicitor in Croyde Bay will also tell you that your employer has a duty of care to you. There are many health and safety rules and regulations that are in place to keep us, the employee, safe in our workplace.
This also includes our emotional health. If the stress is tantamount to being off the scale of being able to cope and function under, what is your employer doing to relieve this stress load?
Are they ensuring, for example, that the work is shared equally amongst the team? Do you have the lion share of the tasks and activities, whilst others seem to have far less? Do you feel harassed – sexually or otherwise – by other colleagues?
Reported but nothing done?
Many claimants who pursue compensation with the help of one of our injury solicitors in Croyde Bay, find that on reporting the issues of stress or harassment (or both!), that the management did not take them seriously. Stress, depression and anxiety are often seen as the responsibility of the person suffering from them but, just like physical injuries and ill health, if your job is making you emotionally unwell and your employer is NOT taking responsibility or care of you, then you may be entitled to compensation.
