With a host of factors increasing the amount of stress employees are under, workplace related mental stress claims are on the rise and are exacting an ever increasing toll on employees, employers and the workplace as a whole.

In this session, we will:

  • Review the causes behind the increase in workplace related stress claims and complaints
  • Provide strategies to reduce their occurrence
  • Review recent WSIAT and WSIB decisions suggesting that workers may now be eligible for worker's compensation benefits for certain workplace stress related claims
  • For situations where such claims cannot be avoided, provide strategies to effectively mitigate their direct and indirect costs to both employees and employers
