The Department of Health estimates that, in the UK alone, 270,000 people each day are absent from work because of workplace stress, the single biggest occupational health problem. Media coverage has highlighted the growing problem of bullying and harassment of teachers, with reports of large awards of damage and compensation settlements in stress-related negligence claims by teachers and public sector colleagues. This report examines the responsibilities of schools and local authority employers under the health and safety, employment protection and discrimination legislation. Recent and significant cases are discussed and the authors also include practical solutions for good employers.
