    Ramwell v Tesco Stores plc 6 April 2000 County Court (0 other reports)

In Ramwell v Tesco Stores plc, a county court dismisses a former Tesco employee's claim for damages for a nervous breakdown. The court cited Walker v Northumberland County Council [1995] All ER , which stated that, where a duty of care has been established, an employer's response needs to be no more than "reasonable", measured by factors including "the cost and practicality of preventing the risk".
