Employment Update: Mental Health in the Workplace – September/October

Mental ill health has a significant impact on organisations. A CIPD study revealed that 80% of sufferers found it harder to concentrate, 62% took longer to do tasks and 50% potentially were less patient with customers.

The benefits of looking after the mental health of the workforce are clear; as an employer you also have certain legal obligations to meet.

In this free legal update we will cover the practical steps you should take when faced with employees suffering from mental health issues to guard against the risk of discrimination claims, including:

  • Understanding mental health as a disability
  • Duty of care
  • Reasonable adjustments
  • Managing absence
  • Medical evidence and GDPR
  • Dismissals

We will also give our usual update on recent cases and developments in employment law.
