This article examines how the English courts have responded to occupational stress claims, and compares this response to the equivalent Australian law and American Federal Law. It outlines the approach of the courts to claims arising in tort and contract respectively and concludes that the Australian, American and English legal systems have some way to go in order to present themselves as favorable to employees in this context.
