There are a lot of people who would like to make a compensation claim for stress in the workplace. But the one thing that many people find is that unless they have hard proof that they are stressed or that their job was the thing that caused them stress, they have trouble winning their claim. Below are some tips for when you want to make a stress claim against your job and your employer.
Document everything for your stress claim
It’s a good idea to document everything that you can so that you have proof that you are stressed out. Write down how you’re feeling, how it’s affecting your life and other things that might be helpful to your case. Keep a diary so that your employer doesn’t think that you decided to make a claim on spur of the moment.
See a doctor before making a stress claim
If you really feel as if you are stressed out, before starting a claim against your employer, going to see a doctor can be a good idea. First of all, the doctor will be able to take your blood pressure and see whether or not it’s high. Second of all, going to the doctor is going to show that you really are stressed out. Another good idea would be to see a counsellor. This also is going to show that you’re not making a claim against your employer for no reason.
Speak with a solicitor before making a stress claim
The final thing you want to do is call a solicitor. Your solicitor will be able to tell you whether or not you really have a claim or if you are wasting your time. A solicitor is not going to take a case that they don’t believe they can win, as most of them will not get paid unless they win the case.
