Well-being and Mental Health Support pack
Whether or not an employee has a diagnosed mental health condition or experiencing a short period of stress and/or anxiety, an employer has a duty of care to ensure the health, safety, and wellbeing under the health and safety legislation of all staff.
Employers have a duty to assess the risks arising from hazards at work, including work-related mental health conditions.
If an employee is considered to have a disability, the Equality Act 2010 says that they have a right not to be discriminated against in employment. This means that employers must not treat individuals with a mental health condition less favorably than other people.
Is your business equipped to support and educate staff regarding mental health, could your managers spot signs of mental health in their staff, and would they know what to do to help?
Here at InterlinkHR we can help support your managers and staff with training to ensure employees get the correct care and support.
