Abstract

Discusses the development of employer liability from its origins in liability for work‐connected physical injury, through liability for work‐related physical injury/illness, mental/nervous disorders as a result of physical injury/illness, to present day liability for stress‐induced illness. The problems of cases of this nature are examined, and it is suggested that employers take reasonable steps to minimise those stresses of the workplace that are foreseeable.
