Stress at Work
Employment Law Solicitors in Birmingham & Manchester
Stress at work can be costly, especially for small businesses where cover for sick employees is difficult to arrange. Stress can reduce the effectiveness of employees, lead to higher rates of absence and contributes to problems with ill health.
Stress can be defined as "the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demand placed on them beyond which a person can cope". Work related stress is something that affects employee's work health from all sectors.
Employers have duties under health and safety laws to assess and take measures to control risks from work related stress. They also have common law duties to take reasonable care to ensure the health and safety of employees.
Failure to follow the correct procedures could leave you as an employer subject to a claim for unfair dismissal and a potential employment tribunal case.
