Due to increasing awareness and openness about employees’ mental wellbeing, claims for psychiatric injury are more likely to be successful than they were historically.
In 2001 MW's Ian Latimer was the first solicitor to take a stress at work case to the Court of Appeal. Hatton v Sutherland was a landmark decision which set out the guidelines to be applied in such cases and it still remains the first point of reference for all lawyers to this day.
