Joint LRA and HSENI Seminar on workplace stress
Seminars on Legal Implications of Workplace Stress
The Labour Relations Agency is working with HSENI to try to reduce absences caused by workplace stress. These seminars will discuss the legal implications for employers.
Stress is fast becoming the largest single medically defined reason for absence from work. It is also, however, a growing area for a range of claims against employers for various forms of mismanagement or negligence. These developments make it vital for employers to be conscious of the dangers of failing to actively manage workplace stress.
The Legal Implications of Workplace Stress seminar is intended to make employers, employees and their representatives aware of the various legal consequences of ineffective management of workplace stress and methods of assessing the likely level of risk.
The seminar will last approximately 2 hours 30 minutes and there is no charge for attendance.
Forthcoming Seminars are listed below and further details and applications can be obtained from lra.org.uk or by clicking on the following link
