This entirely new publication is about mental injuries on the job – what they are, how to assess the risk of occurrence, how to avoid legal liability when they occur, and how to be proactive and create a safe workplace psychologically speaking. Over the past fifteen years or so, the concept of mental injury in occupational health has emerged as a recognized category of harm subject to legal action. One of the authors has selected actual case histories of mental injury while the other author has followed up with a critique of each one, pointing out how another course of action by the employer could have ameliorated the outcome. These examples are taken from a wide variety of workplaces. By reading about these alternative case scenarios – being held legally liable for an employee’s mental injury compared to successful approached used by others – you will be guided confidently towards compliance in a field where the parameters are rapidly expanding.

HR professionals in the organization involved in return to work planning, accommodation, management training, supervision and performance management will welcome this book. As well, owners of small and medium-sized businesses, senior managers and union reps, persons with an interest in workplace human rights and arbitration will see this as a valuable addition to their library.
