Workplace Stress

The impact of stress in the workplace was highlighted in a recent court case where poorly managed stress at work was determined to be a valid cause of constructive dismissal and cost the company $10,000 compensation. If a GP identifies workplace stress as the reason someone needs sick leave, then this is important information you need to take action on. Not only might it lead to an employee claiming they were forced to resign; but there could be potential H&S fines as well.  Stress needs to be recognised as a workplace hazard and you need a process in place to minimise the risk to staff and help them address it.

Do you have a "stress" hazard management process?  This sounds stressful in itself!  But if you need something I can help.
