Stress At Work Claims

Over £79 million compensation recovered for our UK clients – Russell Worth Solicitors

01752 334 469

According to the Health and Safety Executive, 1 in 5 people are suffering from stress at work.

Work related stress cases are on the increase and if you think about it logically, it is unsurprising. With the burden of a recession over the last few years, stress in the workplace has increased with more people being signed off sick for depression, anxiety and other psychological conditions, than any other illness.

Increased stress has led to a lot of people realising that the pressure they are being put under is not acceptable and as a result, an unprecedented amount of claims are being made against employers and substantial payouts are being won.

Stress cases are quite difficult work claims to make however, as the employer has some power in the assumption that they can rely on the employee to cope with the pressure of the work / job that they have agreed to do. That is why it is important to use a solicitor with experience in this line of work to help you with your claim.

We work on a No Win No Fee basis so why not get in touch via the form above or call us on 0800 028 2060 so we can discuss you claim.

Bullying and Harassment
There is a distinct legal difference between the two but fundamentally if you have been emotionally or physically injured through someone else’s words or actions then you could have grounds to make a stress at work compensation claim.
Employee Ability
The job / role is outside of the capability or capacity of the employee – over time this can become a huge problem as peoples self esteem slowly depletes.
Lack of support
If an employee feels like they do not have any support then they can start to feel extremely isolated. Without support from piers or managers, stress and often depression can start to creep in.
Long Hours / Workload
What is expected of you and what you are contracted to do are often very different things. You feel obliged to do them because you think that if you don’t, someone else will.
Job Insecurity
If you don’t feel safe in your job, the psychological repercussions of this can be overwhelming. Whether it is the length of your contract or fears of skill redundancy, these are contributing factors.
Pay and Benefits
These are often indicators of an employees worth and their value to the employer. Financial rewards also massively impact a person’s lifestyle. If these are reduced or frozen for great lengths of time, the employees self esteem will naturally take a hit.
