The article presents examples of cases involving work-related stress and personal injury claims of employees. In the decision in GAB Robins (UK) Ltd. v Triggs, the court agreed that the losses of an employee, including loss of earnings resulting from ill health, were caused by her dismissal. In McAdie v Royal Bank of Scotland, the Court of Appeal held that a capability dismissal had been fair, even though the employer's handling of certain grievance issues had contributed to the employee's illness and inability to return to work.
