It’s the exception rather than the rule that people actually enjoy the work they do. If you asked most people if they are happy with the job they currently do, a fair few would probably tell you they’d much rather be doing something else. Unfortunately though, we all have to pay the bills, and only so many people can be pop stars or footballers. If you’re not 100% happy in your job, stop for a moment to consider the conditions some workers have to toil in in other parts of the world.
In June 2014, the papers were full of stories about cries for help from sweat shop workers being sewn into clothing purchased from a large discount clothing company. The electronics industry suffers from similar problems with the conditions workers in Far East factories that make their products are forced to work under. You can at least be thankful that you don’t have to work 15-hour shifts while being exposed to chemicals that could make you ill.
In the UK, workers are protected by the law. However, some employers can be tempted to flout rules and regulations if it results in saving a few quid. Cutting corners in this fashion can soon wind up in an employee being injured in an accident that was not their fault. If this were to happen to you, there will be a chance that you might be able to take some form of 100% no-win,no-fee* Penarth claims action against your employer for compensation.
Work-related injuries and Penarth claims
It’s not just physical injuries that you might be able to take Penarth claims action over. Any psychological illness you suffer as a result of the conditions you work under might also qualify you for a personal injury compensation pay-out. If your employer forced you to work wild, unreasonable hours after one of your colleagues quit her job and you were to develop some type of stress-related condition as a consequence, you might have a personal injury claim on your hands.
