Stress at work

Claims for Stress at Work carry particular difficulties as they involve careful analysis of an employer’s conduct, usually over a period of time, in order to identify breaches of the employer’s duty of care. Generally, such claims require consideration of a substantial volume of documents and then a connection must be established between the breaches and a deterioration in the client’s psychological health, which must be foreseeable to the employer. BDE Law has experience in bringing these types of claims. The value of such claims varies but can be substantial, with six figure compensation sums having been obtained for some clients.
