Stress and Health Claim??
#1
Hello everyone,

I am new here and want to thank you in advance for your assistance.

I have been put on medical leave due to being overwhelmed with my workload and having to endure a hostile work environment. I have continuously asked for help with the workload and have reported the hostile environment several times and nothing has been done about either. I requested help on Monday and reported an employee for breaking company rules while being on the clock. The problem is that the person that I reported is my supervisors daughter and I was sent an e-mail stating that I needed to take the next day off to “Think long and hard if I wanted to be employed there” and that I may not return to the office until I meet the owner and my supervisor off-site to discuss my employment.

When I started this position almost two years ago, I was on one medication once a day for high blood pressure. I have sense been hospitalized twice and am now on 4 medications 3 times a day to control anxiety and Blood Pressure.

I am now on medical leave and my supervisor keeps e-mailing me and asking me to do work. I just responded that I am on medical leave due to the stress and harassment at work and not seen fit by a medical doctor to work and that I can not assist her at this time.

Can I file a claim for a stress related injury?

you can file a claim for anything but in order to have it accepted and to receive workers compensation benefits you will need a medical opinion supporting your need to be off work and that its caused by your job.
mental stress claims have other more stringent criteria in order to qualify for benefits:
It cannot be the result of a good faith personnel action and you have to be employed for at least 6 months.
if your employer has not provided you with a claim form, there is one here

Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
THANKS FOR POSTING.

Can you explain why you say hostile work environment? What is it, that is hostile?

Thank you
