High Court Mental Injury Ruling Reaffirms Employer Duty of Care

A recent High Court of Australia ruling has reaffirmed an employer’s duty of care to its workers to take reasonable care to avoid mental injuries in the workplace.

What this means for employers:

Employers must provide a safe system of work and take steps to reduce or avoid foreseeable risks of both physical AND mental harm.

It's important for employers to be on the lookout for, and have systems in place to detect, early signs of both mental and physical injury so that employees can be supported at work.
