Compensation for stress at work

WCB rejects police officer’s claim for damages
|Canadian Employment Law Today

The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal has rejected a claim by a former Regina police officer.

The police officer, who resigned from his position because of stress, had his claim for stress-related workers’ compensation benefits denied. The case provides an interesting look at how stress-related claims are handled by the WCB and when it will, and won’t, award benefits.

The case: Taylor v. Saskatchewan (Workers’ Compensation Board)
