Your Employers Duty of Care
Employers have a duty of care to their staff members and this includes health and well being. Legally, employers must abide by the relevant health & safety and employment law, as well as the common law duty of care. In addition, employers have a moral and ethical duty not to cause, or fail to prevent, physical or psychological injury, and must fulfil responsibilities with regard to personal injury and negligence claims. Should reasonable steps not be taken and an accident at work occurs, employers are likely to be liable.
Claiming for Workplace Accidents
If you have had an accident at work, caused by a breach in duty of care by employers you may be able to claim compensation. It is also possible to make a claim if you have been injured as a result of another employee’s negligence. Claims are against the actual employer with compensation received via the organisation as opposed to the specific employee in question.
