Employer could not have foreseen mental injury

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Levy v Allied Dunbar Assurance plc, the High Court in London rejects a claim for damages for work-related stress brought by a former Allied Dunbar employee. The judge finds that the claimant had failed both to disclose a history of mental health problems and to show that it was reasonably foreseeable that the company's conduct might injure his physical or mental health.
