Work related stress is a common condition that many employees suffer from – so common, in fact, that the Health and Safety Executive estimate it costs the UK economy in the region of £5-7 billion every year.
Employers have a legal duty of care to ensure that their staff work in a safe and comfortable environment, yet so often employers will put so much unhealthy stress on people that it starts to affect their mental and physical health.
If you are in this situation, don’t suffer in silence. Talk to us and we can guide you on your legal rights. If we feel your case merits bringing a claim then we will advise you on your legal rights to do so.
You may be worried that seeking legal advice will endanger your job or career. There are laws in the UK that protect employees in these circumstances. If an employer tries to make life even more difficult for you, there are serious repercussions on their part.
You may feel that your situation is too complex or that your case wouldn’t be eligible for making a claim. 90% of our successful claimants felt this way too. You can seek to bring a claim if you have experienced any of the following:
- Sleepless nights due to worry
- Absence from work as a result of feelings of being overwhelmed
- Problems in your relationship caused by stress at work
- Feelings of depression
- Verbal or written warnings for performance at work as a result of mounting stress
- Loss of your job
You may suffer from conditions such as anxiety disorder or clinical depression, brought on as a consequence of your stress at work.
These can all lead to financial difficulties and can escalate problems, as such it’s important to consider your legal rights.
Our friendly, highly qualified and experienced solicitors have helped many people to secure compensation, some, when they have needed it most – at times of financial difficulty brought on by stress.
