Employers and their insurers are dealing with an ever changing landscape of claims involving stress at work. Claims can arise at all stages of the employment relationship involving over-work, bullying or harassment.
Potentially unlimited compensation can be awarded for:
- Financial losses
- Personal injury if a psychological condition results
Who can raise a claim?
- Agency workers
In financial terms, the costs of occupational stress claims to insurers and employers can be substantial. BTO has considerable experience of defending such claims.
Sometimes, the cost to an employers’ reputation of facing a claim of occupational stress can be more significant than the financial one. It is vital to create and implement effective strategies and interventions to avoid or manage such situations. Our employment team can advise you on how to minimise the risk, to prevent claims and on remedies that can be taken against ‘harassers’.
