    Hone v Six Continents Retail Ltd [2006] IRLR 49 CA (0 other reports)

The Court of Appeal decision in Mark Hone v Six Continents Retail Ltd shows that, in stress cases, whether or not the employer has any knowledge of the employee's mental or physical health and medical history is no longer so important.

Stress remains very topical, whether it be the number of days lost or the cost in terms of sick pay, even before considering the cost of managing the absences.
