Accidents at Work Claims

Stress and Bullying at Work 

Most of us become stressed in the workplace at one time or another but sometimes stress can be overwhelming, and employees can be left needing leave to recover. Stress may be caused by a build up of responsibility or a very heavy workload, but in some cases it can also be linked to bullying behaviour from other colleagues.

In either instance it could be possible to make a claim for compensation – and Your Personal Injury Partner can help. We’ve got years of experience in these kinds of claims, and appreciate the need for sensitivity and understanding at every stage.

Stress at work

No-one expects their job to be completely stress free but when unrealistic demands are placed on someone they could develop stress which becomes too much to deal with.

Statistics show that stress is not particularly linked to any sector or job role – anyone can be at risk. Those affected by stress may lose money through necessary time off, but compensation can help to lessen the impact this has on their life.

Bullying in the workplace

Bullying in the workplace is a serious issue and it is not acceptable under any circumstances. There is legislation in place to protect employees from bullying – and if it can be shown that people are being targeted because of their sex, race, sexuality or disability it could even lead to charges.

Examples of bullying behaviour could include:

  • Being left out of plans – employee lunches, drinks etc
  • Being given unachievable tasks
  • The spreading of malicious rumours
  • Providing false information so someone completes a task incorrectly
  • Deliberately ignoring valuable contributions

We have dealt with claims for the following:

  • Sexual harassment
  • Religious discrimination
  • Disability discrimination

As well as dealing with claims for victims of bullying we have also claimed compensation for other colleagues impacted by a workplace where this kind of behaviour is common – witnessing a colleague being bullied can be incredibly distressing and lead to health issues.
