A practical course that will give managers the legal awareness and practical tools for dealing with their legal responsibilities.
Managers have a legal duty of care to ensure that their employees are not harmed by work-related stress and have a duty to assess the risk arising from the hazard of works, including stress. Failure to do so can lead to claims of breach of contract and personal injury claims. In light of the increased number of stress-related Tribunal claims and the increase in publicity, it is prudent that organisations take action early to reduce and manage stress within their organisation.
One fundamental step to managing and reducing stress is through training. All managers need to be aware of their own legal responsibilities in preventing and reducing stress and the practical methods for dealing with short- and long-term cases. Incorrect management of stress or failure to take action when necessary can ultimately lead to potentially costly Tribunal claims and negative PR for your organisation.
This is a practical course that will give managers the legal awareness and practical tools for dealing with their legal responsibilities.
