    Stress at work compensation


    Stress at work is a lot more common than people realise, and can have far-reaching consequences. According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in 2011/12 there were 428,000 cases of work-related stress – this was a massive 40% of the work-related illnesses recorded for that year.

    Anyone can fall victim to stress at work. From high-level CEOs worrying about the bottom line, to the intern being bossed around by senior colleagues.

    HSE research suggests that the most stressful professions in the UK are health professionals, particularly nurses, those who work in education, and those who work in caring personal services.

    How do you know if you are suffering from stress at work?

    Stress at work can creep up on you. One day you are panicking about a challenging task, and before you know it you are dreading going into the office again. Or maybe a friendly rivalry with a colleague turns nasty over time, making you feel isolated, bullied and unable to perform properly in your role.

    Are you entitled to stress at work compensation?

    If you find that work-related stress is taking over your life and making you feel miserable, you may be entitled to stress at work compensation. In serious cases, a stressful working environment can lead to psychological problems such as anxiety disorders, depression and insomnia. Extreme stress can cause palpitations, skin disorders, migraines and stomach ulcers.

    It is important to deal with these issues before they do serious damage to your long-term health. Most doctors would recommend taking time away from work while you recover, or even finding a new job. However, if your stress-related illness was directly caused by your work or working environment, you should not have to pay the price.
