Occupational stress in the workplace

Jagjit Virdi, Angela Lown and Chris Gough discuss managing the risks, the employment tribunal and the compensation claim.

Three specialist practitioners from our employment and casualty injury practices reprise the issue of “Occupational Stress.” focussing on:

  • Why the ground has shifted for psychiatric wellbeing in the workplace;
  • Proactive prevention;
  • The art of the workplace health risk assessment;
  • Psychiatric injury and the employment tribunal;
  • Checks and balances (“Disability” defined);
  • Strategy for those claims that make it through the net;
  • Workplace stress compensation claims; evidential challenges for defending them and how to overcome those challenges (the practical tactics to deploy);
  • An eye on the future and the Judicial “zeitgeist” (are we heading into a perfect storm?)
