Workplace stress can be a legal and managerial minefield and, with stress claims of all types on the increase, it is now more important than ever for employers to minimize the risk of liability by managing stress-related illnesses appropriately.

This text provides practitioners with a comprehensive overview of the various legal issues involved with claims arising from stress-related illness. It offers practical guidance on how to advise clients for whom workplace stress is an issue.

New developments covered include:

  • Employers' liability and negligence, with particular emphasis on the Court of Appeal decision in Hatton versus Sutherland
  • The likely future impact of health and safety legislation
  • The interrelationship between stress and disability discrimination
  • General employment law issues such as constructive dismissal
  • And replacing claims based on "overwork" with more sustainable claims based on bullying.
Written by experienced litigation and employment lawyers, Workplace Stress should prove useful reading for both legal and human resource professionals.
