The Law Protects Workers From Undue Stress
No worker should be forced to live with unnecessary stress imposed by a supervisor or work conditions unrelated to daily job tasks. Heightened stress levels can cause long-lasting physical and mental issues like elevated blood pressure, depression or heart disease. Fortunately, both the federal government and California recognize the potential dangers of extreme stress. If you are in a workplace with an extremely stressful environment, you have legal options.
Stress is a complicated legal question. In some cases, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Other situations may require that you file for a state or federal claim. At this point, you have struggled enough. The attorneys at Hennig, Ruiz & Singh can take on the legal questions for you. Schedule your free consultation.
What Causes Workplace Stress And How Effective Legal Counsel Can Help
Unnecessary workplace stress comes in many forms. For example, you may be struggling because your employer is conducting extended layoffs or because your employer is requiring you to do large amounts of work outside your job description. Other instances may be the result of intentional targeting, harassment or aggression. These scenarios all represent types of valid and unnecessary stress.
